We’re about to take a few weeks off, but before we do that, let’s cover some listener requests! While not themed, per se, they both deal with the hustle and bustle of the winter holiday season. “Winona Ryder Hates Christmas” by Fake Shark Real Zombie is a song that takes its inexplicably silly premise seriously, while “At Last, I’m Ready For Christmas” by Stan Rogers deftly injects some sincerity into a silly-sounding scenario.
The ranking music in this episode is “Dear Abby” by John Prine.
Thank you to Scott and Knut for these requests!
