FIFTH. (Dammit, someone else played that Shonen Knife side?)
  Tue. 12/25/12 3:09am Danne D:

Cuz you don't look at too many playlists, Dimension X - or you have good taste :)

@Amanda - Jon Solomon played a chunk of that on his 24-hr Christmas show (that is still ongoing) on WPRB (as recommended by Terre - he's @comedyminusone on twitter and a FOT in good standing) :)

You, however played the whole thing :)
Avatar    Tue. 12/25/12 3:17am Amanda:

Aw, well, I feel like I'm in good company then. Season's greetings, everyone!
  Tue. 12/25/12 3:17am Danne D:

And apparently it's the 25th year he's done it and I feel like a yutz for having never heard it before.

But you rule AmNazz :D

Merry/Happy Christmas Everyone!
  Tue. 12/25/12 4:54am Dave in PA:

Wow this is the third time Ive heard the Kinks' Father Christmas on WFMU in as many days... definitely a classic!
Avatar    Tue. 12/25/12 4:56am Amanda:

I didn't get around to playing it last year, so I needed to make sure I did today. (I love it too much)
  Tue. 12/25/12 4:59am Dave in PA:

I was trying to raise global Krampus awareness last year, but this year... it seems I need a new obscure Christmas figure to promote...
  Tue. 12/25/12 5:01am Dave in PA:

"In France, La Pere Fouettard, otherwise known as the whipping father, works with Santa to punish kids who've been bad during the year. Meanwhile, his nicer counterpart, Pere Noel (Father Christmas) gets to work rewarding all the nice kids around the world. The name "The Whipping Father" probably explains exactly what La Pere Fouettard does to kids, though legend has it that La Pere Fouettard was a bad man, and in order to repent for his terrible ways, he vowed to work for Santa." Cool.
  Tue. 12/25/12 5:20am Listener Schned:

Merry Christmas Amanda ! And thanks for the all the past year's tunes and tales- which I usually hear archivally only-
Avatar    Tue. 12/25/12 5:24am Amanda:

Much obliged, L. Schned!
  Tue. 12/25/12 5:27am Brian in UK:
