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.

WHY BAN ONE CHRISTMAS SONG AND NOT ANOTHER? a radio station in Cleveland says it has banned the holiday favorite song, Baby, It's Cold Outside because, it says, it has received complaints about the song in light of the so-called #MeToo movement. But is that the only potentially "offensive" Christmas song? Listen and decide for yourself!
Here is an article Tom used to prepare for this episode: 'Baby It's Cold Outside' pulled from Cleveland radio station amid #MeToo movement.
Baby, It's Cold Outside first appeared in the 1949 MGM film Neptune's Daughter where it was performed by two couples, one played by Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalbán, and the other played by Betty Garrett and, of all people, comedian Red Skelton, and in their version, the roles of the predator and the pressured are reversed! This song won the Academy Award for Best Song in 1949. Take a look at the original movie clip and pay attention to the lyrics as well.
On the other hand, Santa Baby was originally recorded by Eartha Kitt with Henri René and his orchestra in July 1953. Take a listen to the song and its lyrics here. If Baby, It's Cold Outside should be banned from being played on radio, shouldn't Santa Baby also be banned?

Here is the article that Tom used to prepare for this episode: Laid-off Sears workers left with nothing – and they say wealthy bosses are to blame.
