Welcome to episode 104 of Holly Jolly X'masu! In this episode, for Black History Month, I talk about the 1993 album, “Merry Christmas Wish,” by the American R&B trio, A.S.A.P.

ASAP – Merry Christmas Wish – 1993

I hope you enjoyed “Merry Christmas Wish.” I was thrilled when I found it, mainly because of how few English versions there are of these songs I’ve been collecting over the past several years. This is a fun, solid album and it lets me throw some Japanese songs into my regular Christmas playlist without any pushback from my kids, who sometimes get annoyed when they don’t understand the lyrics.

ASAP – Merry Christmas Wish – Back

Be sure to join me next month when I cover a pair of albums by jazz singer Akiko for Women’s History Month. Up first is her 2007 album, “A White Album.” Then join me on the 25th for her 2017 release, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” They’re both great albums and you’re sure to like them.

Remember, I've added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you'd like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Half of any proceeds or donations received will be donated to support the people of Ukraine, while the rest will be used to purchase new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!
