Our favorite jolly elf, Old Man Freak Boy, will one again gift his listeners with some of our tunage! This year's Christmas show features Kevin's childhood fav. "Snow Miser/ Heat Miser," originally from "The Year Without a Santa Clause" but lately from our sophomore album "Christmas Spirits."

As always, fans living near Utica, NY can catch the Christmas grooves airing live at WPNR 90.7, now TWICE AS NICE: this year's show, Sunday, December 20 at 8:00 PM EST and last year's show on Monday, December 21 at 11:00 PM EST.

For all you other Sugarplum fairies, or for those that just can't get enough you can enjoy ALL FOUR holiday specials RIGHT NOW

Be sure to follow the Old Man on Facebook along with our s-elves, especially if you want to be the first to know about a super-secret, possible summer collaboration between the same!
