KCRW DJs offer holiday playlist with tunes by Temptations, Jimi Hendrix, Judy Garland

This holiday season may not feel like days of yore. But sometimes just a few notes can take us back to Christmases in grandma’s house, surrounded by loved ones, all eating and drinking and being merry. KCRW DJs share songs that get them in the holiday spirit.
