We here at YLFH would like to thank you for making year #26 a rousing success. This has been a labor of love from the beginning and it’s nice to know that I can share this with you all. The Holidays are a special time and it warms my heart to know that people are enjoying the fruits of my labor. I know that the set lists get a little wacky sometimes. But that that’s what YLFH is all about. If you want to listen to Michael Buble’ and Mariah Carey you can turn on the radio. If you want to hear something different then this is our little holiday music home away from home.

I’d like to send a special word of thanks to all the people who help support the show.

And a special thanks to our show supporters

I am deeply gratified to all the support and shares I get.

Also a very special special thanks to my wife, Corin & my daughter, Amanda for picking up the reins on Episode 4 and for their unwavering support for the last 20+ years. I could not have done all of this without them.

Finally thanks to all of you for listening. We hope you have enjoyed our little ditty of a podcast. It’s a butt-ton of work and there are certainly times that I don’t think I will make it through but somehow we always manage. As long as you keep listening, I’ll keep podcasting.

All of us at YLFH would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah (or is it Hanukkah?), Happy Kwanza, Happy Festivus or whatever you celebrate (or not) this Holiday season. I’ll be back in 2020. I’m gonna keep doing this until I get it right! Until then….Let’s Make America YULE Again! (and the rest of the world too!).
