The Western Reserve – Second Annual Ohio Christmas Spectacular – Episode 11

It’s the holiday season! That means it is time for another all-Ohio Christmas Holiday Spectacular! This is the second annual edition and Brian is again joined by his real life podcast co-host in marriage, Sherri. Everyone from Johnny Paycheck to St. Lenox, Dean Martin to The Heartlanders, and everything in between gets heard here. Brian gets a Christmas card from Blessid Union of Souls, favorite christmas shapes are discussed and much more. Full disclosure: The Magic of Christmas gets destroyed about 30 minutes in with the release of some pretty serious talk about Old Saint Nick. Do not listen with children around. If you do and they find out something terrible, it’s Sherri’s fault.
