1. Our own Maureen

2. Michael Rielly
talks about Dicken's model for the figure of the Ghost of Christmas Present.
3. We explore Thanksgiving history and discuss the importance of its influence on the season of Christmas -- and we share some more comedy from Stan Freberg related to Thanksgiving in American history
4. Radio Jon D
gives us the scoop on Black Friday 2010
both where the deals will be and what the tea leaves say about the economy for this holiday shopping season.
talks about driving fast and picking up women in his storytelling of the history of Jingle Bells
and introducing our latest name-that-artist contest with the World's Worst Mix of Jingle Bells.
It is a huge episode, one we enjoyed putting together and one where we learned that the diversity of voices really makes it a lot more interesting.
