WZLX Scared Straight Santa

Karlson & McKenzieOne of my all-time favorite holiday bits is “Scared Straight Santa” as done by Karlson and McKenzie at WZLX, Boston.  In this feature, Pete McKenzie calls a kid who’s been naughty as Santa Claus to call them out.  It’s after the holdiays, but the execution of this is flawless. From the fun audio segments they use up front to set the tone to the call with the kid (who was obviously having a good time with all of it), this bit has just enough attitude and fun to make people talk.  Hang on to it for next year (or for July when Santa has a lot of time on his hands!).
