Welcome to the show you beautiful people.
This episode starts with a brand new segment called Jack-Ask (which is a terrible name and needs to be changed). For some reason a listener thinks your host, Jack, is the person to ask for advice on a Christmas dilemma. What do you do when a guest brings very little food to the table, but takes loads of leftovers when they leave?
Then it’s the triumphant return of Robin Sings (which should really be called Robin and Juno Sing). We had a request from Bob Baker for the girls to sing Where Are You Christmas, so that’s what they did.
We also had a request from Bob Baker to take a look at the British TV show Old Jack’s Boat which has a lovely Christmas episode. It’s called The Christmas Quest and it’s a real tearjerker. I couldn’t find the episode to watch, but you can listen to the story here:
This episode we have another Yule Log. This one features Lil Bub an internet famous cat who’s very cute and sits in front of a fire.
If you want to watch it, who am I to stop you. Here’s a link:
Then we have everyone’s favourite segment What The Dickens. This episode we talk about why the chapters of a Christmas Carol are called staves, why Scrooge wants to retire to Bedlam and why every idiot who goes around with Merry Christmas on his lips should be buried with a stake of holly through his heart.
This week’s recommendation is anything by the author Bill Bryson. His books are funny and interesting and they kept me company on my short tour around Wales.
