For the past few years, we’ve had a lot of fun celebrating the holidays on Tech tAUk and Tech tAUk Reloaded by writing and performing some fun holiday song parodies. Professional musicians and audiophiles we are not, but these have nevertheless given us some great feedback from our fans.
And so, in the spirit of giving for the holiday season, we have assembled a collection of hits from our two Tech tAUk Classic holiday specials: 2010’s Tech the Halls: Tech tAUk’s Christmas Spectacular (and Hanukkah!)! and 2011’s Tech tAUkanukkah: The Festival of Bytes!, plus some newer tracks this year, into a new album: A Tech tAUk Holiday.
A Tech tAUk Holiday is a completely free, downloadable album containing 11 slightly-remastered tracks, plus one brand-new, never-before-heard track: “It’s the Most Wonderful Tech of the Year!”
