** RECORDING OF EXCEPTIONAL MERIT (the show’s highest ranking) - Tidings
“Allison Crowe’s ‘Tidings’ showcases a
powerful folk voice, opening with a goosebump-inducing a cappella
‘It Came Upon A Midnight Clear’.”
Chair of the Sociology Department at the University of Wisconsin, Dr. Gerry Grzyb, AKA Dr. Christmas, is cited as America's foremost authority on Christmas music ~ with an ear to good music of all genres. Each year since 1989 he's sifted through a mass of new seasonal releases, searching for the gems, outside the mainstream, that make the cut to be played on his radio show, an epic tradition broadcast on Wisconsin’s WRST-FM.
Following his marathon (six day) radio program this holiday season, "Dr. Christmas" wrote to say: Of over 100 new Christmas CDs played on my show, Allison's drew the most listener interest."
