Merry Podcast #39 — Anticipating Santa

We celebrate Christmas in July by dedicating an entire episode to Santa Claus.

Highlighting this episode and by popular demand is an edited recap of our 2013 Santa tracking from Kringle Radio — all the voices, all the characters, all the fun of more than 50 hours of world-wide Christmas Eve broadcasting.

We also take a grateful look at Christmas legend Gene Autry, the Singing Cowboy.

We tell the story of Jimmy Van Allen, an ardent fan of Clement Clark Moore, the author of A Visit from St. Nicholas. We likewise re-explore the debate behind Moore’s authorship of the famous poem.

This episode features the music of Alabama, The Jackson Five, Bob Rivers, Perry Como and, of course, Gene Autry.
