At this time, our program was on from 4 A.M. – 6 A.M on KWVA 98.1 FM in Eugene, OR.  Holden Craft was in studio, providing banter and selections.  Shows with him were always of a much different tone than with other guests (or even solo).  Holden has a very specific sense of humor that I allowed him to explore on the show, and he became a very popular part of the routine.  In this episode, he prepares one of his very first News Broadcasts, another bit that threatened to take over the entire show later on.  This holiday program is part of the “New Year Dawning” series, and I enjoy listening to again every Year.  Also of note: we mention Tonya, one of our listeners who always got up early to do homework, and would listen to us as she was studying.  Later she became a ‘zine subscriber, too.  (See “The Taco Bell Chihuahua” episode.)

Enjoy.

Our first holiday broadcast, from 1998!  Not heard since then, and available in digital form for the first time!  This is also one of the most complete shows from this era.  (Mostly, just missing the commercials.)  The Cremation of Sam McGee!  (At least, the first time I ever read it on the air.)  And, a theme show, at that.  It’s the complete nostalgia package, all in one show!

Join us as we travel back in time to 1998, where I was just learning my radio chops, and decided to do an all-out spooky holiday show.  Weather or not I succeed is up to you, but I remember this one fondly, and feel that there are moments that hold up pretty well.  And listen to that tape hiss!  Ahh, the good old days.

In these days, my show was on from 4 A.M. – 6 A.M.   On KWVA.  This was before podcasts, or streaming radio.  You heard this live, or on the tape I made of the show.  It’s a real treat to share it again, in a new form.  Enjoy!
