Show Notes
This program was originally released to limited family and friends in December 2006.

Welcome to the Smith Family Holiday Podcast. This is our very first program! We hope you enjoy it. You will hear fascinating stories like Neil’s memories of the console record player, the incomparable Robert Goulet and Al Gore’s lockbox.
We also chat about Catholic School, Christmas fashion and the Clooney family.
Somehow we even work in “Battlestar Galactica” and They Might Be Giants. These are a few of our favorite holiday things!

    Thanks for the bonus show! And especially for pointing me towards Venus Hum’s version of Suzy Snowflake. I love the Rosemary Clooney version, but not as much as the Venus Hum version.

    You are welcome, Walt! That VH song is off a really great Christmas CD they did. I think you’d like it. It’s called “Switched on Christmas.”
