The Aforementioned Hush Puppies of Jimmy Buffet

We celebrate the National Day of Listening by engaging in a Christmas quiz which leads to a  discussion of the darker side of the holiday, particularly Krampus, The Devil of Christmas. Marcus delivers another Aging Cheerleader, focusing this time on “Gentleman Loser Rock”, investigating the work of such artists as Harry Nilsson, Crooked Fingers, Silver Jews, Rod Stewart, Warren Zevon, and, of course, Jimmy Buffet, among others. Sarah Messer, author of Bandit Letters and Red House, reads us two poems, “Three Centuries of Getting Pregnant by Accident,” which first appeared in Salt Hill, and “Union Street Bridge,” which is brand spanking gnu! She read both from under a blanket in Michigan.

    C’mon, the song “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was written by Johnny Marks. Who, for my money, was the best Christmas song writer that lived.
