This episode was going to start with a tribute to my friend and radio sister Rita Houston from the second I learned she lost her six year cancer battle. Her fight was long, painfull, debilitating and unfathomable to anyone who has never dealt with it up close and personal. I am happy she is at peace but like everyone who knew her, sad her light has vanished from our sight. I initially planned to continue doing a “regular” show and even managed to get in a great new song from Jeffrey Dean Foster but once the Christmas tunes came out, the floodgates opened. What can I say? It’s been a truly tough year for everyone and sitting here on December 22 felt the need to try and muster up some last minute Holiday Spirit. Musically we run the gamut from a brilliant brand new Nick Piunti & The Complicated Men track to Butterbeans & Susie’s 1930 chestnut “Papa Ain't No Santa Claus (Mama Ain't No Christmas Tree).” Let’s take a sonic holiday romp together and lift our spirits high. Did I mention weed is finally legal in New Jersey? It’s good to be home, wherever you are. Merry Christmas to all and thanks for making this brutal year suck a whole lot less. https://paypal.me/pools/c/8beKwFWlHR
