    Every year since 2005 (well, every year except 2007 anyway) I've put together or helped put together a compilation of Christmas music from strange and mostly electronic artists. Aside from the fact that most of the things involves are electronic, the genres involved have been all over the board, from straight and to completely .

    I feel I'm a bit biased, in saying this, but I do believe it's one of the best, if not the best Christmas music series out there, and it's totally free (legally!)

    If nothing else, it's definitely the most eclectic one I've come across... and I do make a point to check out as many Christmas music collections as I can.

    This year, we've got a delicious line-up of artists, 14 in fact!
    If you like music, you're covered. Have a propensity towards chaotic barely-even-music mashups? That's covered too!

    Today's show featuring music selected by the rad lads from the Magicore music blog is so much fun!

    For the last year or so I've been friends with on Twitter. has always had great things to say and posted links to some wonderful links. A lot of links happened to be from his Magicore blog so I subscribed to his feed and was richly rewarded.

    What is Magicore? Magicore is "a style of music primarily deriving influence from various genres of metal, electronic dance music, video-game music, and Japanese pop music. Magicore albums are conceptual in nature and revolve around a science fiction/fantasy storyline, with characters and settings." Magicore as a genre doesn't exist so Magicore the blog posts music that captures the spirit of what Magicore could be.

    I loved the music I was finding on Magicore so I invited to come on the show as a guest DJ to play the music he thought was the very best of Magicore. …
