Merry Christmas Bob,
Thank you for playing Todd, totally brightened up my Christmas
  Sat. 12/24/11 9:51am john:

it isn't "flamenco sketches"?
  Sat. 12/24/11 9:54am Brian in UK:

Sincerosly, Mr Irwin certainly is ubiquitous.

Nothing like Nina.
  Sat. 12/24/11 9:55am lil bob:

They don't necessarily go together , but this Bill Evans piece makes me think of Fred Wesley's Peace Fugue. Anything Spider John does is alright by me , but that Willie Murphy record is something else. Thanks and Mazeltov
  Sat. 12/24/11 9:55am karen:

I would rather hear "Boat on the Charles" than a Christmas song any day--even though I am stringing lights on my tree while listening today. Happiest wishes for Christmas and New Year to Bob and to all his listeners.
  Sat. 12/24/11 9:59am john:

little ealier there was something I swore was "blue in green", turned out it wasn't, then the Bill Evans I swore was the same as "flamenco sketches", eh? all good on it, mate.
  Sat. 12/24/11 10:04am annie:

yes, "jack goes boating" is such a great flick, unforgettable
  Sat. 12/24/11 10:06am Mike Sin:

Bob Brainen providing the soundtrack as I inventory the booze, blender, and ice situation. Happy holidays to Bob and all his listeners!
  Sat. 12/24/11 10:07am annie:

hhmmm.. eggnog!!
  Sat. 12/24/11 10:30am Brian in UK:

Nothing like Jon Brion.
  Sat. 12/24/11 10:52am mrmucho:
