Kendo's Cardboard Fireplace! - Chill Retro Christmas Music


A fun, chill, unique throwback to Christmases when fondue pots and plastic covered couches were the norm! From classics to unknowns, and I mean literally we don't know who performed a few of these tracks - culled from my personal collection. Pull up a fiberglass rug and hang out with me - you never know who will show up: Lawrence Welk? Aretha? A high school choir? You'll just have to trust Kendo and listen in the player below.
