“Elton Jim” Turano lights up about his early holiday decorating, explains how to “correctly” display a nativity scene, and reviews some of the best and worst national anthem performances

In this 29th episode of “Elton Jim” Turano’s “CAPTAIN POD-TASTIC,” Jim Turano happily shares how he began putting up his holiday decorations in mid-November and how it is making the season brighter.  He also assures his nativity scene is shown realistically, by only displaying an empty stable and some animals until Xmas Eve and Xmas day. And in the “Pop Culture Club,” he and Emily Armanetti — in the wake of Aretha Franklin’s recent elongated version of “The Star Spangled Banner” on Thanksgiving — review some of the best and worst performances of the National Anthem.
