Holiday Improvised Song Spectacular Part TWO!
Suggestions roll in from BWC fans from Chicago, UK, Bay Area and Iceland. Hosts Ashley, Chris and John (w/MD Dan Wessels) welcome not one but TWO guest into the cozy Baby Wants Candy Christmas studio: Zach Marsh (guest BWC MD) dishes on his experience scoring Hallmark Christmas Movies. And BWC cast member Lauren Adams ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt") talks about what's on everyone's mind: who else wants to sleep with hot Santa Kurt Russell? Featuring the improvised classic Holiday songs: "Olives On The Ends Of My Fingers (An Orphan's Manicure)", "He's Not Heavy, He's My Heavy Meats for the Holidays", "I Need More Wine to Do You In This Hallmark Christmas Movie" and "Crap Christmas Gift Quartet".
