Keeping up an annual tradition now four years running, Rivethead Magazine once again proudly presents "The Santa Claus Bank Robbery".  Narrated by the great storyteller Wes Dodson, "The Santa Claus Bank Robbery" spins out the real-life tale of a brazen bank heist that took place on December 23rd, 1927, in the small, dusty, central Texas town of Cisco.  Parental discretion is advised, as this podcast does contain gratuitous references to Christmas.  From our home to yours, we say yule, y'all!!
