Let the Record Show, the crate-dug interview series in which artists discuss their favorite songs of all time as the tracks spin on vinyl, finishes its marathon third season today with the biggest celebrity of all time, Santa Claus.
After a no-show from Las Vegas resident Celine Dion, hosts Mike Pizzo and Warren Peace found themselves in a predicament, without a guest for the episode. Luckily Santa Claus, bearing a gold sack of vinyl treats, showed up just in time to fill the guest spot. Santa commended the boys for sharing musical knowledge all year long with Let the Record Show, but in this episode brings some of his favorite holiday records, showcasing oddball pressings of beloved classics like Run DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis”, Band Aid “Do They Know It’s Christmas”, and Outkast “Player’s Ball”, among others. Santa impresses the hosts with extensive, encyclopedic musical knowledge for every song discussed in the episode.
Santa’s appearance on Let the Record Show marks the 35th episode in the series and the 20th episode released this year, closing out Season 3 of the series. The season was a landmark success for the show, with guests including Flosstradamus, Lil Jon, Kurupt, Mayer Hawthorne, Just Blaze, Masta Ace & Marco Polo, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Cut Chemist, MURS, Tech N9ne, Del the Funky Homosapien, Destructo, The High & Mighty, Valentino Khan, CADE, DJ Hurricane, The Doppelgangaz, Chromeo, and DJ 4B. Season 4 will kick off in January 2020, with YehMe2, SNAILS, and Rittz.
