HUGE SHOW FOR THE END OF A HUGE YEAR!
“I’m not looking ahead to the break, I’ve already started…That is not a prop”
Joy to Report, for next week’s shows! Let fans receive his song. Let every ear prepare to hear, Let every ear prepare to hear. For Stephen and guests will sing. For Stephen and guests will sing. Let STE-E-EPHEN and his guests sing!
Yes, Hubsters, we’re getting a week filled with music—and more. We Jews probably won’t be blessed enough to have Mr. Colbert rock a couple of verses of “Dreidel, Dreidel,” although there IS one guest who should probably pick something a little more Kosher. (Keep in mind, I realize that NO ONE can actually “rock” “Dreidel.”) But I’m no Scrooge, so no complaints here about what should be yet another extraordinary and special group of episodes. And not only has a schedule of visitors been posted, but the song each particular person/group of people will perform.
This should be the last week of shows prior to the holiday break–and it’s ending with a favorite of mine, a non-religious song composed by one of my idols.
