A Tech tAUk Holiday

atechtaukholiday-artworkFor 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!”

About Douglas Bell

I live in Washington, D.C., and work as a Broadcast Technician at WAMU 88.5 FM, the local NPR affiliate in the Washington metro area. My primary shift is to engineer the local feed of NPR’s Morning Edition, including local news and weather, long-form features and station breaks… and yes, the shift starts at 5 am, so I’ve got the whole quasi-nocturnal thing going on. I am also the Coordinating Producer for Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie, an independently-produced podcast and public radio program. Extracurricularly, I play cello, and participate in a church choir and a handbell choir. I enjoy discovering new places, and am constantly searching for the perfect cheeseburger. I am also known as a frequent teller of puns.
