Chicago try not to overdo Christmas songs

The band Chicago has two Christmas albums out, but they don't ever do all-Christmas concerts.

Trumpeter Lee Loughnane says they've learned they can't do more than two holiday songs live or people get antsy to hear their hits. He sort of understands: Loughnane says he only puts on Chicago Christmas music every four or five years.

He says if one of the songs comes on the radio, he'll think, "Oh yeah, that came out pretty good!"

Chicago's two holiday albums have been packaged together with a lower price as "Chicago's Ultimate Christmas Collection."
