The music elves at WXPN are once again expanding the definition of holiday music. Now you can listen to a dedicated stream of eclectic holiday music. The Jingle Jams stream will play the "holiday mix to jingle your jangle" 24/7 and will temporarily replace the XPN2 Singer-Songwriter Radio stream with a wide-ranging mix of holiday music through December 31 (XPN2 Singer Songwriter Radio will return on Wednesday, January 1).LISTEN TO THE STREAM
