Among his more than 250 holiday records, Drase had some '60s-era Christmas tracks from Singapore. And no holiday collection would be complete without the "Star Wars Christmas" LP?</p><p>In addition to spinning records, Drase runs two independent record labels: <a href="http://www.addendarecords.com/" target="_blank">Addenda</a> and <a href="http://www.plustapes.com/" target="_blank">Plustapes</a>. He joined<em> Eight Forty-Eight</em> to talk about his extensive--and weird--holiday record collection.</p></p> Fri, 16 Dec 2011 15:47:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-12-16/dj-dustin-drase-spins-some-holiday-cheer-94969 Global Notes: Holiday Music Extravaganza! http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/global-notes-holiday-music-extravaganza <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org/jyp.jpeg" alt="" /><p><p>After weeks of waiting, Jerome and <a href="http://www.wbez.org/radio-m">Radio M</a> host Tony Sarabia present the <a href="http://www.wbez.org/globalnotes">Global Notes</a> Holiday Extravaganza.
