Robert Drake’s Christmas Countdown: Elvis Costello joins Stephen Colbert on “There Are Much Worse Things To Believe In”
It’s just 7 days ‘til The Night Before on XPN … and to help get us prepared for 24 hours of yours truly, I present to you a unique holiday song each day!
Today we keep it modern with a clip from the surprisingly funny 2008 TV Christmas special hosted by Stephen Colbert. With an impressive list of special guests, my favorite has to be a visit from Elvis Costello – together they perform a song that channels the spirit of Frank & Dean, preaching their message of holiday goodwill. Here they are performing “There Are Much Worse Things To Believe In.”
Be sure to join me for my 22nd annual edition of The Night Before on XPN; 24 hours of me and my eclectic collection of seasonal sounds – midnight to midnight on the 24th day of December … only on WXPN.
