Season 7 Christmas Special

Merry Krimble and a ho ho ho!

S7 E40

Worst Little Listeners, thanks for tuning in again and bearing with us for another year. This year we have something truly special to share with you – no, not that we put a down payment on a short-bus (details soon for the crowdfunder). It just so happens that Reverend Rory’s parents were in town for a little early Christmas! And he was able to fast-talk invite them onto the show! Team Wifey – Diana Dowd and Mikie Ramirez – are also in the room; and let us not forget little Rikku, in for her yearly recording session. Listen in the new year for more outrageous and questionable samples!

Its not the longest show, but we have a lot of fun. There are gifts, embarrassing stories about The Rev, an intern gets a name, all the Christmas wishes and – most importantly – a classic retelling of “The Legend Of Hamburger James And The True Meaning Of Christmas”, as disastrously read by Reverend Rory.

We will see you in January with The Sway, an up-and-coming Reno funk band. From all of us, to all of you – have a joyous and wonderful holiday season. And if you’re not? Hit one of us up, reach out, call a friend, hug a cat – but don’t let it get to you. We love you.

Thanks for Listening.

Skew Ring has been around a short time and even after this podcast, little is still known about these elusive beasts. They have recently played The Saint and The Holland Project and there’s talk of an EP coming out soon. Keep an eye on their Instagram for updates on where you can see them in the wild. And trust me, you should definitely see them in the wild.
