WGBH's Mike Wilkins stopped by Studio Three for his annual Christmas music segment. Wilkins spent a year digging through crates and trawling eBay auctions for the rarest, weirdest holiday tunes. Guest hosts Callie Crossley and Sue O'Connell played their favorites from Wilkins' 2013 Yuletown Throwdown playlist.

Then, Eric Jackson offered his picks for the best Christmas jazz tunes. Jackson is the host of "Eric in the Evening."

  • Comedian Jimmy Tingle wrapped up the year with a look back at 2013's biggest headlines. You can catch Tingle's show "Making Comic Sense of 2013: The Year in 90 Minutes" Saturday, December 28 at 8 PM.
  • Harvard Business School historian Nancy Koehn joined Callie and Sue to talk about wealth, inequality and "affluenza."
  • Jonathon Alsop came with his picks for the Twelve Wines for the Twelve Days of Christmas.
