11.19.17 All in the Family

Ogden Nash said, “A family is a unit composed not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold.” This week’s show is all about family: Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters, grandparents and even an in-law thrown in for good measure. If you look forward to family gatherings with a combination of joy, trepidation, or outright fear, you are not alone. It’s “All In The Family” on melodically challenged!
