Episode 506: Bell Wars

Email a Friend
Those are Malmark handbells on the left and Schulmerich bells on the right.

On today's show, a story on a Christmasy theme: Handbells!

But also, a not-so-Christmasy theme: A decades-long feud between two big bell companies, located right down the road from each other.

But then, a Christmasy ending: Peace!

**Note: We are taking some time off for the holidays. We'll be back with a new show on Friday January 3.**

Music: Sonos Handbell Ensemble's "The Nutcracker," "Sleigh Ride," and "Hava Negila," and Arsis Handbell Ensemble's "Golliwogg's Cake-Walk." Find us: Twitter/ Facebook/ Spotify/ Tumblr. Download the Planet Money iPhone App.
