71 One-Minute Christmas Season Interstitials - traditions, legends, lore.

From the Mike Whorf "Kaleidoscope" catalog, these radio interstitials cover trivia and history of the Christmas season.

[NOTE] Files are available individually or as the entire group of 71 (entire group version currently offered as single 1:26:27 track only).

*Fun Facts: Each program was first recorded on 1/4" 2-track stereo reel-to-reel tape with included music from vinyl records. Accordingly, tape hiss, record pops, and other common artifacts from these media should be expected.
