The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

  Mon. 12/19/11 12:11pm SteveF:

Sorry meant "Good"
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:14pm SteveF:

Either way - it's all guud!

  Mon. 12/19/11 12:16pm Sean Gostage:

  Mon. 12/19/11 12:16pm Van in Dallas:

Well, the green, with red colored links makes it seem like Xmas around here :)
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:18pm SteveF:

Ok Van - now i get it - I have not had my morning coffee yet...I thought you meant the first two songs were Chrtistmas-sy.....sorry....
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:21pm Irene:

Happy Krimble, everybody! Hoping to get our holidays off to a peaceful start.
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:25pm SteveF:

Happy Krimble to you and yours as well, Irene!
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:28pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I will have to google Krimble...I have never heard of that one!
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:31pm Irene:

Happy Krimble was a John Lennon-ism from the Beatles Christmas messages to fans. Wish I'd remembered to bring it today. Maybe in the WFMU library?
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:32pm SteveF:

That would be cool to hear.......again
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:35pm Looms:

Hello there!
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:37pm Brian in UK:

Hello Irene & chums. I'm all for foxhunting after eight of our chickens were killed by them.
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:38pm SteveF:

You have (had) chickens...how cool!
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:40pm Brian in UK:

Got more now SteveF, these are in our back garden. The others were on the allotment. Ex-batteries chooks. Trying to give them a bit of peace & some fresh eggs into the bargain.
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:42pm glenn:

the umspeakable in hot pursuit of the inedible.
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:43pm glenn:

oops. unspeakable.
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:44pm Brian in UK:

Hello glenn.
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:51pm Brian in UK:

The Beatles used to record a record!! for their fan club every Christmas if memory serves. Guess that's where the Krimble originates. Though John Lennon's poetry books probably contain similar styles. Bit like Spike Milligan.
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:52pm obsidian pond:

this show is amazing! great work Irene! loved that wall matthews track.
  Mon. 12/19/11 12:56pm Sean Gostage:

  Mon. 12/19/11 12:57pm Happy Krimble:

  Mon. 12/19/11 1:41pm SteveF:

  Mon. 12/19/11 1:52pm RochesterEars:

I'm not really a religious person .... but Mahalia can always stop me in my tracks ................
  Mon. 12/19/11 1:55pm Sean Gostage:

Suddenly I am feeling the spirit, this is the best version of Silent night I have ever heard, just wonderful
  Mon. 12/19/11 2:07pm SteveF:

Sean,

Your are absolutely right...that Silent Night was really, really nice........
  Mon. 12/19/11 2:09pm SteveF:

You know - every time I have to add up those numbers to post, it really scares me that my message will not be posted as I was never very good in math....but now my son told me to use a calculator.......
  Mon. 12/19/11 2:09pm obsidian pond:

i was feeling the spirit yesterday but all the snow melted last night and its rained all day here (manchester, england)! surprise surprise. warm christmas :( what's the weather like out there, irene?
  Mon. 12/19/11 2:17pm Sean Gostage:

SteveF, I don't normally purchase Christmas albums but "Prayer for Peace" for £3.30 from Amazon was just too good to be true andthe album has "Silent Night". Sorry, Irene and listeners, I don't want to turn the comment list into Ebay or anything but I am just blown away by that track.
  Mon. 12/19/11 2:20pm Van in Dallas:

@obsidian pond - go to Google and type in "let it snow" and hit enter :)
  Mon. 12/19/11 2:42pm Jim B:

  Mon. 12/19/11 2:52pm Sean Gostage:

I am sorry but I am starting to "blubb", I so wanted to be Ebenezer Scrooge but this playlist is so filling me up with Christmas Spirit. Merrry Christmas Irene and all your wonderful listeners
  Mon. 12/19/11 2:55pm C:

  Mon. 12/19/11 2:55pm 12539:
