Episode 314: A Brass Band Christmas
At this time of year if you haven’t been reminded of the poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas you are indeed somewhat isolated from popular culture. It has been part of the marketing program of countless companies and causes, “visions of sugarplums” are probably dancing in your head by now, too. I suppose my personal trainer is hoping that the “little round belly - bowl full of jelly” rhyme sticks in my mind, too.
