In this second episode of HARK, the holiday music podcast, Ian and RJ talk about socks, ska, Fox News and extraterrestrials. And, of course, we add two new songs to the list! Or is it one song? Two versions of the new wave pop Christmas classic “Christmas Wrapping” get reviewed and ranked, Hanukkah gets its first bit of representation, and RJ rants about hegemony. Check out our tumblr at harkpodcast.tumblr.com for the powerpoint slides mentioned!
It’s the inaugural episode of HARK, the holiday music podcast! To get this year-round holiday party started, Ian & RJ review the songs that will hold the top and the bottom positions of the list for quite a while: “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole and “The Christmas Shoes” by NewSong. This podcast was inspired in part by War Rocket Ajax’s Every Story Ever project – if you like comics, go give those guys a listen: http://www.warrocketajax.com
