Today we take the wraps off a project we’ve been working on for quite some time, called MAGCON. It’s a touring show for social media celebrities, mainly catering to teenagers, and covering a wide variety of talent from musicians to actors to models to comedians. Similar to Comic-Con, MAGCON affords fans the opportunity to meet-and-greet their favorite stars (hence the name: Meet-And-Greet CONvention). We’ve revamped the entire tour from the ground up, keeping the familiar meet-and-greet portion that is the core of the show, and adding a significant performance aspect to create a truly unique entertainment experience.
To everyone who has helped on this journey so far, we thank you. This thing is just getting started, and we have a whole lot more in store.
We do cover a couple news items in this episode as well, but you’re just going to have to listen to find out what those are :)
Following up from the lightning round, here’s a list of notable Christmas songs written by Jews:
- “White Christmas” by Irving Berlin
- “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” by Johnny Marks
- “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow” by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne
- “Silver Bells” by Livingston and Evans
- “The Christmas Song” (a.k.a. Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) by Mel Torme
- “Santa Claus Is Back In Town” by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller
- “We Need a Little Christmas” by Jerry Herman

And there are many notable Christmas albums recorded by Jews, such as Barbara Streisand, Kenny G, Sammy Davis Jr. (via The Rat Pack), Barry Manilow, Michael Bolton, Phil Spector, Carly Simon, and Neil Diamond. In fact, Barbara Streisand’s Christmas album, entitled A Christmas Album, is one of the best selling albums of all time, with over 5 million copies sold.
