Presenting this show to you is my tribute to the late Jack Keenan, who passed away in November 2014. He had always hoped his Christmas Special could have aired for that 30th year, and this is my way of honoring his wish. I hope you and your family enjoy listening to this show as much as Jack enjoyed making it (and as much as I enjoyed producing it).
