Believe it or not, we’re sticking with the Christmas theme this weekend for reasons that are pretty well obvious at this point.

Every Saturday night, then, I’ll post a new show. Those will remain on this site permanently, so hopefully I’ll eventually develop a pretty good sampler for those who are curious about OTR and liked to learn more about it. The weekly shows …
