Lee spins two recent holiday music albums - Tim Warfield's Jazzy Christmas and Nnenna Freelon's Christmas.  Lee explains his annual ritual of compiling a holiday music sampler for friends and family in lieu of a humbly boasting holiday letter.  Lee and Rene talk about their favorite holiday songs and they discuss the virtues of caroling.  During the Riff, Rene turns the tables and grills Lee on the upcoming Jazz Connect Conference at APAP|NYC in January.  And Lee in turn interviews Rene about her one woman play - Slut Energy Theory - which premiered earlier this year in NYC.  This episode sponsored by Berks Jazz Festival.
