Today is the Solstice. If you are reading/listening to this show after Solstice, WE MADE IT!!
It's actually the beginning of so many things. The old age is over and the new age has begun.
For this, the last episode of the calendar year and also the episode that closes 6 years of Wigglian podcasting, we have a special guest. We were lucky enough to get a recording of a lecture that Ronald Hutton gave in September in London, England. Sparrow was supposed to be at that lecture but was unable to make it. Our good friend, Dennis, was kind enough to record it and send it to us. We hope you enjoy and learn a little about Pagan History.
We are not featuring an album on this episode but have 5 seasonal tunes for your enjoyment.
Our first song is by Damh the Bard and is called The Winter King, from the Spirit of Albion. Next we hear Light of the World by Sharon Knight and T. Thorn Coyle from the album Songs for a Waning Year.
We borrowed from mainstream music for the next three songs and they are Merry Christmas Baby (by Charles Brown, from the Blues at Christmas 1 cd), Little Drummer Boy (Bob Seger, Ultimate Hits), and finally Winter Wonderland (REO Speedwagon, Not So Silent Night).
Blessed Yule everybody. Stay safe and warm and don't drink and drive.
Thanks for Walking the Wigglian Way!
