Playlist: Sing Out for December 23, 2009 - 10:00pm

Sing Out thanks the callers who asked about the selections in this special "Christmas Eve Eve" Edition of Sing Out, mostly classical themes as performed by non-classical musicians, a few holiday items, and Bob Dylan coming down the Sing Out chimney to offer "The Night Before Christmas." The host apologizes for not having the time during the show to spell out callers' requests to explain such items as Villa-Lobos Bachianas Brasileiras over the phone. But it's all here below. Any other questions, just submit a comment at the bottom.
