This week's show is the very special Dead Hare Radio Hour Christmas Thing/ Holiday Show.
Inspired by Chris' annual Christmas Thing sculptures, this episode is a little bit of a patchwork....
Christmas Thing 2011, by Chris Albert
We start sitting around the bonfire at the Slaats family solstice party. Chris and Matt are Joined by DHRH contributor Sara Anderson Lock and Chad Fust.
Chris' original idea was to treat the listeners to an hour long medley of bad art related press releases set to all our favorite xmas tunes. He begins to sing some lyrics from a release for some exhibit called "Spacewomb" to the tune of "Up on the Rooftop"... and then thinks better of it. (Not to worry, though. He's determined to make this work for next year.
Here's a rundown of relevant links and notes for this episode:
Steve Rossi talks about the Occupy Wall St. Arts & Culture Committee. More information at: wallstreetoccupennial.tumblr.com
Separated at birth?
Representative Peter King's appearance on Anderson Cooper 360.
Dead Hare Correspondents Cynthia and Kenneth check out Art Basel Miami Beach.
We hear Martin Creed's sound Work No. 117 (side A and side B) and the song "I Like Things" from the album "I Can't Move."
Thanks to the Mabbys for singing this week's intro and thanks to Lexi, the recording engineer for that piece.
Thanks to Rich Armstrong for reading the Warhol letter.
Be well, we'll be back in 2012.

Coming into the holiday season, we at the Dead Hare Radio Hour were asking ourselves what we valued most about this time of year. Family visits? Stockings hung by a fire? Presents under the tree? Mistletoe? This was something we had to think about for a little while as there are so many good and bad things revolving around us at the moment. But, if we had to pick one, the consensus would be food. With waist bands growing and New Years resolutions not too far off, we thought what better than think about the role of food in the arts and as a part of culture.
We caught up with the editor of Edible Hudson Valley, Eric Steinman. Who gives us a smattering of treats about food in the Hudson Valley and broader culture. Then we spoke with Tracy Candido. Provocateur of food centered art projects such as Sweet Tooth of the Tiger and the Community Cooking Club.
