Christmas in Hell 2016

The second Omnipop Omnibus christmastree-fire“Christmas in Hell” show – I guess now it’s an annual tradition! Unfortunately, the guys from whom I stole the idea for the show (and who hosted with me last year), Paul & Ted of Berkshire Radio’s Splatto Hour, were unable to make it, so for this year’s show I invited DJ Ryan Cooke of WOMR’s “Reel Music” show (Saturday nights, 9pm to midnight) to join me in the studio. Together we played some of the most silly, weird, tragic, and awful Christmas music you can imagine.

The show broadcast during the regular timeslot of the amazing Lady Di’s “Leggs Up & Dancing” show, and I half expected that some of her listeners might not be thrilled with what we were doing. Remarkably, all of the listener calls we received during the show were supportive of our efforts.

Coming up next is a special Christmas Day edition of the Omnipop Omnibus, featuring an expanded 2 hour Gospel Brunch.

And now sit back, pour yourself a nice beverage, and … um … enjoy? Sure, enjoy, yeah, that’s the word for it.

Christmas in Hell 2015

154692_1721586488951_4665820_nFor my very first Christmas music show I was joined by a couple of special guests, my friends Paul Rapp and Ted Potrikus, who have hosted their own “Christmas in Hell” shows for about 10 years. Together we took over the studio, extending the normal 2 hour show to 3 hours and playing some of the saddest, weirdest, and craziest Christmas music from our collections. After a slight technical snafu to start the show everything went rather smoothly, I think. I hope you enjoy (if that’s the right word for it) the show – we sure had a good time in the studio that night.
