# 386 - The 25th of Christmas in July


59:15 minutes (54.25 MB)

Tonight on the show, we are infusing Christmas (in July) with the Fourth of July. Christmas Songs, and a few gritty fireworks mix tunes spliced in, so we can literally say "Merry Christmas in July With Firecrackers!"

# 365 - 2020: The End. Good Riddance.


1:00:10 minutes (55.1 MB)

Tonight on the Show, we bid farewell to the year that really wasn't. 2020, a year that was lost. COVID-19. Systemic Racism. A heated Presidential Election. Here at home, the Crew won The Cup, House Bill 6 forced a switch in Leadership in the State Legislature, and the most violent year in Columbus.
