Griddlesode #15: A Very Griddlecakes Christmas

In this special edition Griddlesode:

  1. We hear a Christmas Greeting from Bruce Murray of The ZedCast.
  2. We read “The Night Before Christmas” by Clement Clarke Moore (1823)
  3. Then we read a New York Sun editorial from 1897 entitled: “Yes, Virginia. There is a Santa Claus.”

Both songs used in this show are not only from the PodSafe Music Network but are also from the same artist Charlie Crowe.

Due to the demise of The Podsafe Music Network/Mevio, we’ve removed all of the broken links and have attempted to replace them with direct links to the artist’s properties. If you are the artist and would like us to update these links, please contact us at griddlecakes*at*gmail.com.
