Pandora, the online radio station, has created programs for the holidays. Click on Pandora’s “new station” box, and you’ll see a link for holiday stations. We saw stations for “Rockin’ Holidays,” “Classical Christmas,” “Swinging Christmas,” “Hanukkah,” “Navidad Latina” and many others. Pandora’s basic service is free, or $36 a year for the ad-free version.

Another popular online music service is “Spotify.” It’s so popular there’s a waiting list to join, but it doesn’t take long to get a free pass. The nice thing about Spotify is you can create a playlist for an evening’s entertainment. (If you don’t create a playlist, you might run into the absolutely awful experience of having a song you hate come up. Then you have to leave the room so your guests don’t see you at your worst.)
