A miserly man with no heart for the poor
was hoarding his pounds and his pennies and more;
And, rich though he was, he was sullen and sore —
and needed to listen to UnScrooged number four!
While shazbazzar and JediShua were getting ready to see Rogue One again, a blizzard blew into TechnoRetro town, trapping them with eight-foot snowdrifts. But their misfortune is your good luck, EarBuds — Tune in to UnScrooged 4!

’Tis the season of Star Wars with Rogue One, and of course the ‘Dads seen it…once or twice. But shazbazzar and JediShua are itching to see the latest Star Wars story again. But the bleak reality of winter has blocked their plans by trapping them inside during a blizzard. What are ‘Dads to do? Heat up the cocoa, make some cookies and Christmas cereal treats, and crank up some tunes on the stereo, that’s what.
Turn up the tunes on the turntable and get your Christmas mood amped up as we plunge into the final days before Christmas. Whether you’re at work, school, or braving the weather, your holidays will be a bit brighter with some classic holiday tunes from long ago (and some from a galaxy far, far away).
With Sammy Davis, Jr., Billie Holliday, Neil Diamond, Barbara Streisand and more, the retro gets even more retro as 40, 50, and even 60 or more years of Christmas music hang in the air. So get your last minute shopping done, wrap the presents, and invite the whole family to share and enjoy this fourth version of UnScrooged from TechnoRetro Dads.
Merry Christmas, EarBuds!
