While Blasphuphmus Radio has never been the kind of show to flip format when the holidays arise, every year or so I get the urge to deliver back to the listeners my idea of holiday offerings. Christmas is a time of year when we are overwhelmed with holiday offerings, and rather than go down that same old road, I usually try to cook up something that is a little more than your average Jingle Bell Rock.
This particular show comes from our “Phase I” archive, consisting of shows that were aired during the early years of KPSU broadcasting. While I never went much for themes in those days, this show hints at things to come, and set the tone for all future holiday broadcasts. While this wasn’t exactly new to me, it gave me a chance to lay the foundation of things to come.
This episode is part two of two.
