It’s here again: That time of year when the charm and nostalgia of our favorite holiday songs have just about worn off even though the lights are still twinkling brightly and at least a few gifts have yet to be wrapped. It’s hard to appreciate the comfortable familiarity of a wintry carol when it’s been worming its way into your ears for weeks.Fortunately,  we've got an episode to shake you out of the musical monotony of the holiday season.This time around, our panel includes the ever-astute and equally entertaining, Zoe Young, as well as my colleague and collaborator in both business and married life, Mahea Lee.

Or maybe they listened to... the most popular band of all time.In this episode, our panel dusts off some heirloom LPs and takes a deep dive into their parent’s record collections to uncover some gems that have impacted their own musical tastes. And today, I’m joined by producer, songwriter, keyboardist and good buddy, Hughie Stone Fish.
