Podcast 274: This is our Christmas Everest, Part Eighteen – The Lawrence Welk Show, 1972

by | Dec 18, 2020

Day 18 of the This Is Our Everest Advent calendar sees your heroes have their first encounter with the other-worldly Lawrence Welk, and The Lawrence Welk Christmas Show from 1972. Edward and Ian learn about what Republicans do to celebrate Christmas, most of them by the looks of it against their will. In amongst the songs and the forced child labour, Ian finally realises the awesome power Father Christmas has over children and fondly remembers The Andy Williams Show, which is far better than this.

Meanwhile, you can rely on Edward to make several completely baseless accusations about what happened to a young boy’s front teeth and also explain how it took so long for Josef Fritzl to get caught. If you’d like to see the programme (we recommend it), you can find it here.

Tomorrow we’re going back to the 1960s again, with a Christmas special episode of the American game show Concentration.
