Out With The New, In With The Old.

vintage-winterOut With The New, In With The Old.
(Special Is This Music? coverage for Hogwash while he’s out of town.  Originally broadcast on 28 December 2008 on KPSU.)

This is a 60 Minute audio essay about the Holiday Season, with music, sound effects, voice-overs, and a few commercials. For those of you who have never heard the kind of shows I do, this is an excellent introduction to my radio style, and a wonderful hour of holiday sounds for those New Year’s parties around the corner.  (Token mentions of X-Mas were, sadly, unavoidable.)  Consider this my holiday gift to the city of Portland, and anyone else I forgot to get a gift for.  Sorry.

Tune in at 3 PM, won’t you?
