April Fools’ Day is on the horizon – not that anyone should be celebrating it, in this of all years. For what may be the worst of holidays, we listen to two jokes of songs – some old-fashioned parody songs, by listener request. “The 12 Gifts of Christmas” by Allan Sherman may be a so-so version of an overdone song, but it does deliver one very welcome holiday music innovation. “I Yust Go Nuts at Christmas” by Yogi Yorgesson, however, is yust a mess.
Our ranking music this episode is “A Christmas Carol” by Tom Lehrer.
Thank you to Matt and Tim for these requests!
