A Programming Note: At Midnight-Thirty on The Ticket Tonight, a Christmas Spectacular

Bumped into Ticket program director Jeff Catlin last night, and maybe it was the spiked eggnog and rolled mistletoe talking, but somehow I ended up hosting a post-Cowboys-post-game holiday musical spectacular-spectacular that should commence at half past midnightish on 1310 AM tonight. I imagine it'll be a cross between my previous experiment in late-night Ticket-taking and, oh, the late, great Glenn Mitchell's Christmas Blockbuster on KERA-FM, only without Glenn's missed-to-this-very-day talent and taste.

We get rolling with the yuletide soundtrack whenever Norm and Donovan decide to turn over the microphone and go till "whenever," as Jeff said. Maybe I can do a mix with Elf, if he promises to bring the bagels. Feel free to leave requests till then. No need to ask for Universal Robot Band's "Disco Christmas." Already got that covered. And if you miss the show -- because of sleep, say -- there will be a podcast.
