Christmas with Archy and Mehitabel

It’s time once again for us to check in with our old friends from Shinbone Alley: Archy, the free verse poet who died and was reincarnated as a cockroach, and Mehitabel, the alley cat who claims she was once Cleopatra. Archy and Mehitabel were created one hundred years ago by journalist and poet Don Marquis (1878-1937), and for about 20 years Marquis featured them in comic pieces dealing with the issues of the day. We’ll revisit an Archy classic and hear two new pieces: mehitabel and the war on christmas, and archy and the best tree money could buy.
