MORE FROM OUT OF THE WOODWORK (2nd of 5 episodes) In this episode, hear about a woman Tom never actually slept with who keeps popping up.
Once a party girl with a Sunset Strip apartment, a rocking body, outrageous cleavage, a lengthy list of "male friends" and an out-of-wedlock son, she is now older, more wrinkled and more desperate. Clearly a member of SAG! It's apparent that, although she once tried to pass herself off as one of those "born-again virgins" in search of marriage. Now, as her finances continue their decline, she becomes more shameless and needy....possibly to the extent that she would finally reveal her declining body now that no one else apparently wants to see it anymore.
Has this ever happened to you? Tell Tom all about it: email@example.com.
CHRISTMAS IN THE BRONX/JEAN SHEPHERD'S RADIO VERSION OF A CHRISTMAS STORY Here it is: Tom's annual Christmas gift to all the P1s! In the first two hours, Tom tells about his lifelong relationship with the Christmas holiday. Then, Tom introduces you to his broadcasting idol growing up, Jean Shepherd, creator of the characters in the classic holiday film A Christmas Story.
You've probably seen A Christmas Story, but did you know that it began as a story told on the radio when Tom was a kid? Hear the story of Ralphie, his brother Randy, and the Red Ryder BB gun as it was originally told by one of America's all-time great storytellers...and Tom's biggest influence in his style of storytelling. An exact, unedited recording of the original aircheck from WOR/New York just as Tom heard it under the covers on the night of Christmas Eve! We recommend listening late at night, under your tree or under the covers, for the full effect.
NOTE: Super Premium subscribers will hear the original WOR commercials from the late 60s for the sake of authenticity on the Jean Shepherd segment. No paid commercials from The New Normal LLC can be heard here.

TOM'S INFAMOUS, DISASTROUS FIRST "ORPHAN THANKSGIVING" let Tom take you back in time to when he was 23, to when his dad stopped talking to him and to when he came up with the idea of a holiday dinner without the hassles of an actual family. It did not end well.
<-----This is where it happened: in a rent-controlled building on the second floor of 216 West 89th Street, at the corner of Broadway, on New York's Upper West Side.
This looks exactly like the ancient apartment-style gas stove in which Tom made the turkey and into which everyone at his first Orphan Thanksgiving started to stick their grubby hands. ---------------------------------------->
