Loafers Glory 04: Holidays



Episode four of Loafers Glory is about holidays, we have stories and songs about Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. We also have an account of the New York News Guild strike that ended on Christmas day with the Newspaper companies conceding. We Christmas songs from the Basque community in Idaho, Congolese songs for Kwanzaa, and Shalom by Richard Tucker and a Mish Mosh by Mickey Katz.



We also have an account about the time Utah went to jail, and the history of the 1913 Miners Strike and the massacre at the Italian Hall, by the mine company guards. We also have some poetry and a few more funny anecdotes sprinkled in. My favourite is the story of the last living Wobbly.
