Mulligan Stew Dec 19th 2020- Christmas in the Round-The Home Cooked Sessions!


Christmas in the Round began in the late ’70s in an old CBC  radio studio – How Old? It was above the lobby of the Hotel Vancouver.

Back then it was called Christmas Jam.

Through the guidance of Producer Susan Englebert, Shari Ulrich, Roy Forbes, Terry Frewer, Claire Lawrence and myself told Christmas stories and sang Christmas songs. Guests over those years included Valdy, Colleen Peterson and many more.

We lost our dear friend Susan Englebert to Cancer and we dedicate these shows to her memory. Her best guidance on the day was to hide the wine between songs.)

The whole idea disappeared with losing Susan and getting on with our lives and careers.

When Don Shafer created Roundhouse Radio in Vancouver Shari and I started talking about bringing back the concept as  Christmas in the Round.  Here we are at Year 4.  Guests have included  Barney Bentall, Bill Henderson, Jim Byrnes, Roy Forbes, Craig Northey, Shawn Verreault, and more.

This year we gathered on Side Door Access to raise funds for Food Banks in Toronto, Salt Spring island, and Potluck Café Society – East End of Vancouver.

The music and stories you hear came from that Web Broadcast. We thank  Shari Ulrich Mark Busse and  all involved.

Plus  Duke Paetz at CKUA for the huge assist and Corey Wood for online creative and hand-holding.
