Some brief commentary by me, five satiric songs, and an 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.
This program has been broadcast from time to time in years past--most recently in December 2015
