Holiday Memories

Holiday Memories 

(1998 – current):

Even when I try to avoid it, I usually end up making some sort of Holiday Program, when that time of year rolls around. Beginning around Thanksgiving, through until after New Years, this feed will contain all of my Holiday related programming (from that entire span of time), going back to 1998. These show’s cover a wide range of original broadcast stations & podcasts, but they’re all collected here. You can certainly subscribe in iTunes, but there’s a podcast-agnostic feed available, too.

The general feed contains all the holiday shows from Thanksgiving through to New Years. (Including some “generic winter” shows, and stuff like that. If you what shows by holiday:

Thanksgiving

Christmas

New Year’s
