Yuletide Hideaway  by Karrin Allyson should not be hidden in the corner of the WEMU stacks.  This is one of the finest Christmas jazz recordings released in a great while.  

The documentary explores the rich history of the longest-running live performance radio show on public radio.  Featuring interviews with the show's founders, band members and guest artists (including Tim O'Brien, Kathy Mattea, Jason Isbell, Billy Bragg, Bela Fleck and more), WV Public Broadcasting's Dave Mistich retraces the earliest steps of the show in 1983 all the way to the 30th anniversary in 2013.  In addition, this hour-long special also attempts to identify the multifaceted identity of the program and explores its reach and meaning to listeners all across the world.
