  1. Did anybody notice Frank Graham at the end of Romance of the Ranchos trying to wish a Merry Christmas in Spanish as “Feliz Pascua?” Translated that means Happy Easter.

  2. Just wondering if anyone else finds “A Miracle for Christmas” unbearable? Contrary to Greg’s experience with other listeners, I flee from the radio with this episode comes on. If I have to hear Mason Adams talk about driving his “am-buh-lance” one more time…
