Perfect Christmas nostalgia show!

It feels to me like there’s always been a ton of nostalgic Christmas stuff out there for Baby Boomers. I’ve always wished there was some thing from my generation that just focused on Christmas when you were a kid. Here it is and I love it.

A nostalgic treat!

Gerry's embrace of two of the funnest things on earth - the 1980s and Christmas - has led to a highly entertaining show. If it came from the eighties and celebrated Christmas (Spider-Man, Family Ties, Magnum, PI, etc.), Gerry has you covered. Great show for fans of having fun.

Love this!

I definitely love Christmas, and I like to be able to enjoy it a little bit throughout the year. This podcast is positive, sweet, and very nostalgic! I don’t hear a lot of negativity or complaining, just the good stuff. It just makes me happy to listen :-)
