This week’s show is the very special Dead Hare Radio Hour Christmas Thing/ Holiday Show.
Inspired by Chris’ annual Christmas Thing sculptures, this episode is a little bit of a patchwork….
Christmas Thing 2011, by Chris Albert
We start sitting around the bonfire at the Slaats family solstice party. Chris and Matt are Joined by DHRH contributor Sara Anderson Lock and Chad Fust.
Chris’ original idea was to treat the listeners to an hour long medley of bad art related press releases set to all our favorite xmas tunes. He begins to sing some lyrics from a release for some exhibit called “Spacewomb” to the tune of “Up on the Rooftop”… and then thinks better of it. (Not to worry, though. He’s determined to make this work for next year.
Here’s a rundown of relevant links and notes for this episode:
