Ho Ho Ho, get out the Festivus Pole, it’s our holiday show spectacular celebrating with returning guest co-host Erin Sterling Lewis.  If your world is Florida, Gene Leedy was one of the masters of Modernism in the 20th century, bursting on the scene as one of Architectural Record's most successful young architects of 1965.  With us is his daughter Saffie Leedy Ferris and architect Max Strang of Miami, who grew up in a Gene Leedy house, and worked for Gene Leedy.  Later on, special musical guest Laura Ridgeway and the story of the legendary jazz nightclub, the Frog and Nightgown.  This show is dedicated to Peter Ingram, co-founder of that club, who died in November 2020.
