Podcast 18 – The Jingle Bells Scandal


The Jingle Bells Scandal

The 2017 New England Legends Podcast Holiday Musical Spectacular! Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger explore the controversial roots of the song “Jingle Bells,” and its connection to Medford and Boston, Massachusetts. Is it just an innocent Christmas carol about a ride in the snow, or is it a circa 1850 song about a booty call? You’ll never hear this tune the same after this! Kelley Cocuzzo McCauley joins us on piano.
