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.)

good day, and glad tidings, Irene!
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:13pm kat330:

Holy green, Irene! Like the color.
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:14pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hi Irene,
wishing you a very Merry Christmas and season greetings to all the loyal listeners
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:20pm kat330:

@Sean: I echo those sentiments to Irene, to those already here and those still to come! :)
Avatar Mon. 12/24/12 12:20pm Irene:

Hey everybody! Here's to a Merry Christmas/ Happy Krimble/ (insert favorite holiday greeting here). Hoping to get you all (myself included) in the holiday spirit.
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:29pm Hugh:

Merry Christmas, Irene and fellow listeners1
Same here, Irene..trying..to re-capture the Christmas Spirit..where'd it go? But, I trust by the end of your show,we'll be well on our way!
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:33pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Against all the odd al this wonderful Krimble music is getting me all festive, time to pour a glass a port, I think
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:33pm Jeff:

You can do it, Irene!
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:36pm Jeff:

Ooh, port. Sometimes I forget about port. I wonder if I have any decent-ish LBV bottles kicking around ready to sip on.
Avatar Mon. 12/24/12 12:38pm Irene:

Sean, can you send a little of that port through the internet? I could use a glass to warm things up!
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:40pm Philo Gristle:

Hi Irene & everyone. Never get to hear this live, happy to do so today! Will be off keyboard as kat's fixing a lunch hour treat.
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:40pm doca:

hi irene and all listeners, merry christmas from brazil.
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:49pm Andrew Waterloo:

Fellow Canadians will probably remember the McGarrigle Sisters from the Log Driver's Waltz
Hope I didn't miss that in the commentary
  Mon. 12/24/12 12:57pm steve in dc:

"the miracle of now" cant improve on that.
merry, merry Irene.
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:00pm kat330:

Back from the kitchen now. How about we send a big group hug to warm you up, Irene? {{{{{{{{{{{}}}}}}}}}}}}}
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:01pm Bruce E. Thiel:

Longtime listener because I admire your taste, never more than today. Merry Christmas all.
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:13pm Van in DC:

Nice XMas colors & feel here today!

Just stopping by to say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to you Irene and everyone.

It's snowing here! Yay!
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:21pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Now this is my sort of Christmas music, great stuff
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:22pm Andrew Waterloo:

Time to brew the coffee and start the Christmas baking, again
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:22pm fred von helsing:

OK 330 Melancholia is on the way
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:24pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

What's everybody havong for chow tomorrow? Turkey, roast potatoes, swede, parsnips, broccolli and stuffing. The calorie content is horrifying!
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:24pm kat330:

Excellent, fred! And fast! I hope I didn't oversell that opening. Try to have a large screen and crank up the volume. :) Off the keyboard now and just listening to my sweet Dave!
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:26pm Jeff:

Big family party in Brooklyn. We're roasting a goose; not sure what everyone else is contributing, but I bet it'll all be yummy.
Avatar Mon. 12/24/12 1:26pm Irene:

Yeah, Sean! That's exactly what I'm planning. My guy Peter has to work tomorrow (The Media never sleep!) so I'm gonna fix a nice big turkey dinner. Damn the calories-- full speed ahead!
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:27pm fred von helsing:

Only a small screen 330 but I can boost the bass and hope for the cinematic best. I swear, Another Earth seems t've made me an existentialist, and just in time for Christmas too :)
Avatar Mon. 12/24/12 1:29pm Irene:

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a 330?
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:36pm Parq:

Way-digging this banjo-based "Linus and Lucy". The merriest day to you, Miss Irene and listeners.
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:39pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Great, great music, Irene, what a blessed relief from "I wish it could be Christmas everyday" and other fine tunes of that ilk!
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:44pm fred von helsing:

A 330 is a Chatboard Listener k330 of course! Juha optional :)
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:49pm KP:

Good
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:51pm KP:

One word of poetic post?
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:54pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Your wonderful music is making the chore of peeling spuds a real joy at this moment!
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:54pm KP:

Just meant to say Merry Christmas from the Holiday Haven that is Alexandria, Va.
  Mon. 12/24/12 1:54pm fred von helsing:

kAT330 d'oh
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:08pm kat330:

@fred: Honey, kat, katt, 330 -- what's in a name? :)

Great sounds, Irene! Hands now otherwise occupied.
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:08pm Joe Corrao:

great stuff
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:17pm KP:

Almost wrote Irene on a card for an Eileen. Third day of my fmu Christmas marathon.
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:22pm Peter K.:

Hey, what an awesome playlist! All that's missing is Fats Waller doing "Jingle Bells," hint hint.
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:26pm KP:

PK, long as no soprano sax is involved.
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:33pm Ralf Christiano:

Irene, great sounds to wrap presents to. The best to you and yours! Enjoy the season.
Avatar Mon. 12/24/12 2:36pm Irene:

My pleasure! I'm at least trying to at least do alternate versions of songs our ears are being pummeled with.
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:39pm Parq:

Lovely show; enjoy your time off.
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:41pm KP:

I got the deluxe Christmas gripweeds release, stocking and all. It was the highlight of that season,
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:41pm fred von helsing:

"Honey 330", how is that ?
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:45pm MD:

Happy Christmas all! I am so glad that another culture in the universe decided to bio-genetically implant their genes in us in the form of a child named Jesus...to try and stop us all from killing each other! IT Warms my heart! The Star of David was a space ship...
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:47pm Joe Corrao:

MD...do you know "A Spaceman Cam Traveling" by Chris DeBurg
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:48pm KP:

I guess this song has a captive audience.
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:51pm MD:

Joe...I don't know that song. I'm just keeping an open mind...the 'MYTH' is nice also...
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:51pm fred von helsing:

I wish I could listen in but I'm in a pub playing heavy. Yecccccccchh...
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:52pm kat330:

@fred: It's *all* good! :)

And so has been your afternoon treat of music, Irene! Thank you for all the merry morsels!

Stay warm and be kind, full of goodwill, ye merry gentlemen and women!
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:53pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Irene, thank you for a wonderful show, have a great day tomorrow, Merry Christmas to you and to everybody who tuned in
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:55pm MD:

My heart is full of love for WFMU and all the Listeners!!! hAPpy HOLiDAZE TO ALL...MD
  Mon. 12/24/12 2:55pm KP:

I was up this morn running errands listening to frank O'toole.. He was playing a fantastic far out Christmas mix. When it was over he said he and Irene did it. My kudos and recommendations.
Avatar Mon. 12/24/12 2:55pm Irene:

Thanks for listening everybody! Hope I gave you a little Christmas cheer. Catch you all in the Year.
  Wed. 12/26/12 8:31am Van in DC:

  Wed. 12/26/12 12:18pm Van in DC:
