Mike Wilkins' Wayward Wassailing

All this hour, Mike Wilkins, a radio engineer for The World, shares his latest compilation of old songs that are quirky, weird and just a little bit extra. These are not the traditional carols from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir or even new traditional favorites like Mariah Carey’s “This Christmas.” Nope, for his 29th annual collection of songs you never heard of Mike has once again rescued vinyl one hit wonders from the dusty bins of holiday music recordings. This is Mike’s Wayward Wassailing, a Yuletopia recording.
