Despite This Matthew Broderick Christmas Story News, It Still Isn't Time for X-Mas Music


From Variety, we find out that they've cast Matthew Broderick in the narrator voice for the upcoming "Live" Christmas Story performance that Fox is putting on this season.  From the story:
Matthew Broderick has signed on for the role of the adult Ralphie narrator in Fo’s live staging of a musical based on the beloved 1983 film “A Christmas Story.” 
... Broderick will take on the voice-over work handled in the film by Jean Shepherd, the late humorist and radio host who wrote the 1966 short story that inspired in the movie.
... Broderick is no stranger to the stage. He has two Tonys under his belt and a long list of credits ranging from “Brighton Beach Memoirs” to “The Producers” to most recently “It’s Only a Play.” His past TV credits include guest shots on “30 Rock” and “Modern Family.”
We don't care if you love this or hate this (we love it!).  Still doesn't change things.  No Christmas music just yet.

From Holly's piece:
October is officially over, marking the unofficial start of the holiday season. And we've put together the perfect playlist to help get you in the holiday spirit.

And who better to assemble a premature holiday playlist than someone who listens to Christmas music all year? That's right. I, Holly Hays, being of sound mind and filled with Christmas cheer, listen to Holiday Jamz in July. And August. And whenever I darn well please. We've embedded it below and it is …
