A Damon Runyon Christmas story set to music.

Christmascdartjpg_small In the continuing saga of Swanktown we take a short break for the Christmas holidays as Sly Crooner, your lounge companion, recalls a very special Christmas past. What makes it special is that in following their natural instincts to share the holiday spirit with those around them the three wise men of Swanktown, Good Time Charley, Dancing Dan and Sly Crooner also advance the cause of true love. Not to mention Dancing Dan stays healthy in a very toxic environment. This warm, sweet and loving holiday tale is actually a Damon Runyon story set to original swank arrangements of Christmas classics. Laughing Jingle Bells, Cool Angels We Have Heard On High, The Swank Wassail Song, Reggae Silent Night and a Latin version of We Three Kings (Los Tres Reyes) and many others are highlighted. This show is also available as two half hour episodes. Merry Christmas and a very swank New Year to you!
