A fine audio collage on Christmas and America produced by Scooter. A blend of social satire, inspired nonsense, improbable music, serious debate, standup comedy, right-wing craziness, & great fun.

Last December we played a 12-minute excerpt from the piece. This year (what the heck) we present Scooter's tour-de-force almost uncut ... almost uncensored ... and almost unabridged!

(Continued under "Credits.")
This collage weaves together a debate on religion by the late Christopher Hitchens and Bill Donahue, a parody Christmas-movie "big production number," a parody war movie (climaxing in the death of all three Chipmunks), ravings by Bill O'Reilly and a televangelist, heavy-metal Christmas carols, standup comedy by Lewis Black and Sam Kinison, and more.

Scooter produces "The innerSide" at KPFT-FM, Houston. Find more of his work at .

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "Boardwalk") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
