Our holiday special sets a festive pace: it's a radio tradition for Brazilian music fans worldwide. And there’s a story to go along with it as we unwrap ‘A Brazilian Christmas’ one song at a time. Plus, a musical contest to kick off the New Year. View our playlist for this week's show, below.

Naughty or nice? Here’s a topically tropical list of things you should know for the week ahead. Adding a little more ‘Brazil’ to your life can make a pretty neat stocking stuffer for others, too!:
