25 Christmas Special 2018 - The Nonagon Club!
Ho ho whoa! 9 guests?! In a tribute to the 9 Lessons & Carols, Paul our Host of Christmas Past flies his sleigh back through festive history. There are no live guests a-guesting - instead for our penultimate show, Paul has a voice-changer. It's not a great voice-changer, but it means we drop in on influential Christmassy words from:
- Astronaut TOM STAFFORD on pranking NASA
- Private HENRY WILLIAMSON on sharing tobacco
- Writer CHARLES DICKENS on humbuggery
- Writer WASHINGTON IRVING on Christmas the English way
- Devonian clergyman RICHARD SMART on Christmas the man
- Puritan minister HEZEKIAH WOODWARD on Christmas the heresy
- King HENRY III on Christmas the dinner
- Saint HILARY of POITIERS on the first carol
- Charles M Schulz creation LINUS on the true meaning of Christmas
Phew! One more episode to go, for now. Join us in January. Merry Christmas!
