A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Tue. 12/20/11 9:17am oldie moldy:

making pancakes and taking the daughter to see santa today...
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:20am still b/p:

Winged monkeys are more entertaining and more easily trainable in groups, but if you want something on a sun-blocking, holy shit scale to come a'swoopin' down on your enemies at your direction, you want condors.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:24am postmanpaul:

Those turkeyeagles look like the ones that used to swoop down out of the dark early-morning sky and gobble up unsuspecting, poorly or lazy school children on their way to school, in the old days.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:26am Parq:

I am reminded of "Bobcat" Goldthwait on Conan, showing off the rare California condor he purchased at great expense, asking the audience to admire its wingspan and so forth. The gag was, he was in fact holding a chicken.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:28am postmanpaul:

Shame this fella fucked up.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:29am Nathan:

"Virgin Mary is at my door... she's just a girl who thinks that I'm the one.. but the kid is not my son" - Joseph

  Tue. 12/20/11 9:31am oldie moldy:

george would have liked this one...

  Tue. 12/20/11 9:33am Dave in SoDak:

Morning, Trubbs and all. Checkin' in. Saw Bobcat recently here in Sioux Falls. He's still pretty darn funny and a really smart guy. Happy Holidaze.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:33am Brian in UK:

Hello trouble & listeners. Eadweard Muybridge would be proud of this vista.
PMP I was down your way the other week, went to see Richard Buckner at the Basement.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:34am Snortley:

The Andean condor is the only species of new world vultures that are sexually dimorphic.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:35am ellesbells:

wooo, I love the numero group back catalog. looking forward to it
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:36am PKNY:

Cosign on the Donny Hathaway...found a very clean Quad LP version of "Extensions of a Man" last week, score!
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:37am Brian in UK:

Know what you mean 'bout Mr Hathaway.
Yes, Joe Byrd was in USA & The Field Hippies. 'Love Song for the Dead Che' is sublime.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:37am listener gary:

I hate christmas music. I'm turning you off.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:38am dale:

will someone do a paul williams box set? puhleez?
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:38am Jennique:

Morning Trouble! I hate that I missed "Hawaiian Hula Blues". I'll have to listen on the archives for it. Mele kalikimaka!
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:41am trouble:

is that a threat listener gary?
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:42am trouble:

  Tue. 12/20/11 9:42am dc pat:

I like Christmas so I'm turning you on twice.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:43am housewolf:

I heard a lot of robins this morning. After all the other birds clear out you can always count on the robins to stick around.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:44am lewis:

good morning all - very glad it is tuesday so I can listen to Trouble!
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:44am ffrr:

That box set better include those silly bits from 'Ishtar', which are pretty funny.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:45am dc pat:

I dig hearing the little peeps of cardinals when it's snowing.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:51am dc pat:

yeah, my fave Xmas tune...
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:51am dale:

look for paul as a teenager in tony richardson't the loved ones. he's the kid who plays with rockets. i haven't seen any cardinals yet, just finches and titmouses and bluejays, oh my. and the occasional flycatchers and woodpeckers.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:55am dc pat:

saw a nice big fat red tail hawk land in a tree in my alley, right in the middle of DC the other day.
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:56am trouble:

listener jennique tells me they just spotted a rare rufous hummingbird in the yard @ the american museum of natural history on the upper west side: crazy!
  Tue. 12/20/11 9:58am dc pat:

I saw a rufous-sided hb after a series of storms blew it in from the west apparently
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:00am jamesie:

The man in the trench coat
Badge out, laid off
Says he's got a bad cough
Wants to get it paid off
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:02am Andy in Iowa City:

Hey, hey Trouble and fellow 'FMUers. Checking in to say hello and wish everyone happy holidays. Thanks for all the great tunes in 2011 and those to come in 2012!
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:05am trouble:

  Tue. 12/20/11 10:07am Birds:

That wood thrush has *the* most beautiful call.
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:10am Jennique:

  Tue. 12/20/11 10:10am sugarwolf:

Happy Holidays, my fellow commenters!!

I am working on my last minute holiday gifts today.
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:11am jonathan:

phantom of the paradise!
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:11am βrian:

A red-tailed hook swept down on a chicken in my front yard last week. Chicken survived with some loss of blood.
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:12am Andrew:

@sugarwolf - Hah! real lastminute is 5pm on Christmas Eve.
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:12am Jennique:

I think I remember seeing Paul Williams do a guest appearance on Wonder Woman.
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:14am avgwhiteguy:

Not attractive? That's not fair. Dude was everywhere in the 70's, so someone MUST have thought he loooked good.
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:15am Adrian in London:

Rushing out to town, will listen in the archive: Merry Christmas Trouble and listeners! x

hey adrian, merry happy!
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:16am dc pat:

whoa, thanks Birds, I've been trying to figure out what that call was (wood thrush) for a while now. Heard lots of them up in Maine but never saw the dang things.
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:17am trouble:

sugarwolf i have not knit a single present, not a minute, so sad...
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:18am Brian in UK:

Stuff shopping, hoping to see Barry Flanagan tomorrow. Maybe purchase some cheeses. (buying cheese is NOT shopping)
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:18am ffrr:

I recall Felix's daughter running away to see Paul Williams on 'The Odd Couple'.
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:20am Kissy Bear:

  Tue. 12/20/11 10:21am seang:

Happy Holidays folks, thanks for the tunes!!
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:25am Van in Dallas:

This really IS a long goodbye :)
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:26am sugarwolf:

Andrew, I have stayed up until early Christmas morning finishing the handknits in years past, and apparently, I never learn!!
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:26am ellesbells:

john HOLT! nice nice
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:30am v k:

Thousand Volts of Holt! one of best album covers of all time - 'Here Come the Girls'
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:37am Lynn:

I did not see a photo by Trouble at the gallery website. Maybe I should look under another name? I love your show so much I want to buy a photo!
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:39am dale:

i saw paul in midtown once. he had a brush cut and i couldn't figure out who it was for second. i was on my way to feinsteins to see rosemary clooney's christmas show, just before she passed. it was my night of stargazing
  Tue. 12/20/11 10:43am trouble:

1st Yacht Rock Song (in my opinion) - Starbuck - Moonlight Feels Right
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:35am Jennique:

Yacht Rock - Christopher Cross - Sailing
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:37am Koko:

I want smooth music!
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:38am Dymo:

Even free form's a label.

don't make me kill you!
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:40am Kissy Bear:

I want kissy smooth music
which is only a label to the extent that it isn't....which is kind of meaningless anyway, unless you give it kissy hug love
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:40am listener mark:

Yacht rock was the soft rock of the late seventies and early eighties. The album covers featured sailboats and ocean waves and the sea shore. Loggins and Messina, Robert Dupree (Steal Away), Michael McDonald,...

Merry Happy Trouble and DJ Icepack
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:53am glenn:

get him a membership to the young republicans.
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:54am Cecile:

I got my 11 year old twin nephews those straws that have plastic plumber joints and whatnot. They loved them - they could build one by themselves, or make a big straw creation together.
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:55am Patrick:

Dj ice pack, merry Xmas! Get a membership to the folk art museum.
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:55am Jennique:

YAY!! DJ Icepack!! Future scientist!!
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:55am Cecile:

you don't need a membership, just show up to meetings.

Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt were Republicans.
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:55am Patrick:

Newt/Mitt 2012!
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:55am Nathan:

DJ Icepack knows stuff.
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:55am Cecile:

I recommend a day at a farmer's market - pick out some treats either take out or cookable.
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:57am dc pat:

wait, can you post those books Icepack is reading?? Sounds like something I should force my 10 year old to read.
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:57am v:

the kid is so cool!
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:57am maja:

  Tue. 12/20/11 11:58am Emily and Patrick:

Hey Trouble and DJ Icepack,

Come visit us in Ohio! Hope you have a happy Christmas.
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:59am Cecile:

kid creole!
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:59am Parq:

Icepack, I bet you'd dig Terry Pratchett's Discworld books. Set in a sort of medieval society, the series includes books about how that society invented newspapers, the movies and rock and roll, and there's a great thriller story about time travel.
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:59am dc pat:

no don't show up at meetings, stay as far away from Republicans as you can. Lincoln was a republican the same way Strom Thurmond was a democrat.
  Tue. 12/20/11 11:59am maja:

that's christmas, xmas and HAPPY!!
  Tue. 12/20/11 12:00pm Jennique:

Nothing is so fine as Christmas on Riverside Drive...
Big thanks for that and merry merry!
