With John on tour and the holiday season literally upon us (literally), the next few weeks of our Roderick on the Line program will, regrettably, be compelled to hew to an unusually-erratic release schedule.
But, in deference to the Spirit of Christmas, we’d like to share with you a Very Special Episode™ from the copious bowels of the RotL archives.
Like It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, and that one episode of Happy Days where Fonzie may have to spend Christmas alone in his hovel of a garage, eating a can of beans from his hot plate, we hope that you will consider building a warm and nostalgic new holiday tradition for your family with an annual listening of one of our favorite and best-loved episodes: “The Story of Lola.”
In which John drinks too much coffee, shares his breadth of knowledge regarding our nation’s strip clubs, explains the role of raccoons in producing bottled water, and—yes—recounts his august background dressing up as Santa Claus and spanking dirty little elves in a bar.
Happy Holidays to you and yours, and thank you for letting John help you so much each week.
