Tinsel Tunes has been bought to life by me – Duane Bailey, born out of an idea by Brian Earl of the Christmas Podcast Christmas Past (http://www.christmaspast.media) Go check him out! But before you go… A little bit about me and this podcast.

I am based in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. I also run the Facebook page Christmas in New Zealand (https://www.facebook.com/christmasinnewzealand/) which is a New Zealand Christmas enthusiast page. We do have some international followers too.

Simply put – I love Christmas. I always have. And I love music (well most of it :)) I also play drums.

So I have decided to join them together in a podcast. I hope you’ll come and have a listen (and I hope you’ll like it) 🙂

Tinsel Tunes podcast goes into great detail about Christmas Tunes. Full of fun and interesting facts, it will get you into the Christmas Spirit. ​ ​Hear about your favorite classics or modern songs. Learn about those songs that you dislike. The stories behind these are just as interesting. ​You may also find some new favorites and get a heads up on what will be new each season. Review us and get a free sticker. (contact me to let me know).
