About Christmas TV History

The Retroist and more

screen shot of website The Retroist from yesterday.

In case you didn't see it yet,  I was interviewed by pop culture expert/book author Caseen Gaines for an article on The Retroist website yesterday.  Click HERE for the link to that interview.  Caseen asks me about what makes a successful Christmas TV special, my favorite Christmas episodes and movies, and my opinions about the 1978 bomb, The Star Wars Holiday Special

You know Caseen Gaines, right?  He wrote this year's hottest book A Christmas Story: Behind the Scenes of a Holiday Classic.  His previous work was the book Inside Pee Wee's Playhouse and his next book is about the movie Back to the Future.  Isn't that awesome?

I also want to let you know that I'll be doing a live radio interview Wednesday, Dec. 11th on RadioOnceMore.com.  I met Johnny Holmes who will be conducting the interview at Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention earlier this year.  My participation in the broadcast will begin shortly after 9pm(ET) so please join us.  You can listen to the program through the website and you can social network with them through their facebook page.

I've already taped the annual Christmas show with TV Confidential.  The radio broadcasts will be airing throughout the country over the week of Dec. 18th.  And, I'll let you know when the podcast becomes available on-line.  We had a lot of fun again this year, discussing the best and worst of holiday TV programming.  Brady Bunch Fans:  You'll hear me laughing out loud at an apt joke about Cousin Oliver.  More details about this broadcast coming soon.

And, if you live in Bloomington IN--or want to listen to it live on the internet:  I'll be on the radio show The Bloomington Review on Friday, Dec. 13th with Jim Inman Jr. at 6pm(ET).  So much to look forward to!
