There's still more Christmas presents to unwrap from the Totally '80s Podcast this week!

Following the first part of Lyndsey Parker and John Hughes' Yuletide yakfest two weeks ago, the holly, jolly pair are back to share more of their seasonal pop favorites from the decade that gave us classics from The Pretenders ("2000 Miles") and the Ramones ("Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)"), favorites like the charity collection A Very Special Christmas and new spins on classics like Daryl Hall & John Oates' "Jingle Bell Rock" and Bing Crosby & David Bowie's "Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth." This might even settle the debate of whether or not Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime" is annoying or not!

Hang your stockings with care, pour yourself a mug of cocoa and get ready to flash back through totally awesome Christmases past with this must-hear episode!
