It's a Christmas brunch loaded with friends food and frivolity.  Friends well we'll meet John Lingard a friend in Lincoln England who will continue our education on English Christmas traditions.  Then for the meat of the brunch a surprise.  It's Ilyria in the 1920s and you're invited to quite the Christmas party.  The sound is awesome the music even better.  To round out the show Matt Cox gives you a brunch preview of 2010.  Finally thanks for making bBrunch the show it is.  And a special Christmas message from Twitch the Cat ... and a few friends too.  P.s.  If you're wondering what the play is Scott and Tracie from Disney Indiana will be by to help us.

This week is kind of different at the brunch studios.  First we listen to a big band program from 1936 as Henry Hall entertains with Christmas and other dance tunes.  Then we return to our naval draft and see what happens when a sea lord comes to inspect them.  Then the meat of the brunch.  It's Christmas in the UK and we'll begin our own celebrations by seeing what goes on at the UK pavillion.  Joining Matt for this lively festive discussion will be Scott and Tracie Morris aka the first family of Disney Indiana and Scott Viers aka the Mortis  and don't forget next week for the big 100 we'll be learning about Christmas in the UK from England.

Before we hear "A Christmas Carrol," we'll listen to our weekly dose of Navy Lark.  Troutbridge has been commissioned to take guests to the South Pole.  Question is does Mr. Philipps know where south is?  The next two episodes contain two very different Christmas themed discussions.  Enjoy.

I don't mind saying that when we end Churchill's Bodyguard this week I feel a bit emotional.  A thirteen week series ... well it's a quarter of a year.  The Navy Lark continues though with the episode "Johnson Finds Treasure," and then we listen to Agatha Christies Adventure of The Christmas Pudding.  If you've never listened to John Moffett as Hercule then you're in for a treat.  David Bales should just be finishing "The Mysterious Affair at sStyle."  Enjoy and early Christmas and holiday greetings.
