Think you know music? Quiz yourself with the latest episode of Hit Parade: The Bridge.

This month, Host Chris Molanphy is joined by Jessica Goldstein, the culture editor at ThinkProgress and a journalist whose work has appeared in Vulture and The Washington Post, among other places. Her October article in Entertainment Weekly, “Britney Spears wanted to be a star: An oral history of '...Baby One More Time,'” was an inspiration for the November episode of Hit Parade.

Chris is also joined by one listener contestant to play some music trivia, which is all about holiday music.
