On "Idiot's Delight"® tonight at 8, Vin Scelsa rallies from the depths of the miserable cold that grounded him last week. Armed with throat lozenges and plenty of tea, Vin returns this Saturday before Christmas for a "kind of" Yuletide show, but as only "Idiot's Delight"® has celebrated Christmas on the radio for the past 46 years. Although mistletoe might be scarce (well, there might be a sleigh bell or two), expect seasonal tangents from Yo La Tengo, Bob Dylan, The Smothers Brothers, Jeff Buckley and other snowbound souls.
That's Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"®, Saturdays from 8-10 p.m. on 90.7FM, also streaming online.
Tuned in late to the show? You can find "Idiot's Delight"® in the FUV archives for two weeks after broadcast.
