A Very Special Jack Keenan Christmas – Episode 4

December 21, 2014

Hour 4 of the 2008 Jack Keenan Christmas Special – originally aired on December 24/25 2008, on Talk1300, WGDJ-AM, Albany NY. This hour’s guests:

  • Neil D. Breslin, New York State Senator and Michael Breslin, former Albany County Executive
  • Ernie Tetrault, former news anchor with WRGB
  • Michael McNulty, former U.S. Congressman from NY, his sister Ellen McNulty Ryan, Mayor of Green Island, and their father John J. (Jack) McNulty, former Albany County Sheriff
  • Old Time Radio Clip: From the Bing Crosby Show, December 1942 – Academy Award winning actress Fay Bainter reads Francis P. Church’s 1897 editorial in the New York Sun which contains the famous quote, “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus”.

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).
