On Repeat: Judi Johnson's Holiday Playlist

White headphones connected to a wire.


We live and breathe the arts at CCA, and lately, music has become even more important than ever. In this era of social distancing, songs provide companionship for everything from working out to working from home.  We asked our staff what's on their playlists these days, and they did not disappoint. Our Marketing Coordinator, Judi Johnson, has a playlist that provides a perfect soundtrack for all holiday festivities. Pop in those earbuds and enjoy this curated Spotify list of holiday music that will please ages 1 to 102.

Judi Johnson's Playlist

"The songs and artists on my list make it feel like Christmas to me, from classic holiday movie songs to albums that my mom would play during the holidays.  I grew up listening to country, my parent's 50's rock and roll music and big band music from Saturday nights spent with my grandparents watching The Lawrence Welk Show, so I tend to gravitate towards those artists, new and legends."
