Christmas Lights are 99% up in Chico!

Chico, Ca - Christmas lights We have all but a couple strands up, and a few that have gone out since we put them up.

2012 in Chico looks to be a very fun show featuring¬†Trans SIberian Orchestra:Wish Lizst, Trans SIberian Orchestra:Nutrocker, Wizards In Winter, You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch, Palladio, &¬†Carol Of The Bells… and maybe more if I can get them finished by early December.

The shows are usually around 15 min long, then loop. Still working on finding a good FM frequency to broadcast from … all the good ones are taken in Chico.
