WXPN’s Twelve Days of Local Christmas continues today with the song “Son, You Should Come Home For Chritsmas” by singer-songwriter Ben Smith. You can download the song below, but be sure to download the song’s B-Side, “Black Friday” from Smith’s Old Man Winter, Volume 2 here. Recorded at Milkboy Philly, the song includes Matt Magarahan on drums and bassist Tim Celfo. Smith has been one of XPN’s long time favorite singer-songwriters with an excellent body of work behind him as a solo artist and with his bands Missing Palmer West and Wise and Foolish Builders. A year ago Smith was featured in a Key Studio Video Session that you can watch here. The 12 Days of Local Christmas compilation is curated by XPN mid-day host Helen Leicht and the songs will be played daily during My Morning Download on the Morning Show with Michaela Majoun and on Helen’s local pick of the day. You can download the entire Twelve Days of Local Christmas compilation here.
