Pee-Wee Riding In A Train In New York
 
In 1993, this piece was performed in concert at Arena Stage in 
Washington, D.C., 
by  Dr. Paul Nahay, to an enthusiastic crowd. Inspired, he played it again in a performance with folk singer Grace Griffith in Temple Hills, MD. At that performance, audience reaction was also good, except for one woman who
ran shrieking out of the room at the moment in the music when the "bomb" hit. In 1996, Peter Billow recorded a song/voice-over on this piece called 
 "Not My Holiday," which is a very funny counterpoint to the commercialism and selfishness of Christmas in America.

As you listen to the music, you can hear several famous Christmas tunes, and you can hear the train pulling into stations in several areas of New York. If you listen very closely, you may even be able to name the area of town where you hear the song Silent Night. This may seem trivial, but if you can name that area of New York, you may be eligible to win a prize.
