I’ve never been a fan of this one, but I know it’s beloved by many, so I’m asking: “Is The Pogues‘ ‘Fairytale of New York’ really the best Christmas song of all time?”

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
