Some brief commentary by me, five seasonal songs, and one satiric imitation Broadway "big production number." All take a comic but critical view of American hypocrisies, religiosity, commercialism, militarism, class warfare, and other Christmastime traditions. See "Notes" for playlist.
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "Boardwalk") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.

Simon and Garfunkel, "Silent Night / Six O'Clock News"
Anne Feeney, "Brave New Christmas"
Roy Zimmerman, "Buy War Toys for Christmas" *
