Hi there Doug! :)
  12:07pm Skirkie:

Seasonally affected greetings to all.
  12:09pm Van in Dallas:

I love this from Google Maps...get walking directions from "The Shire" to "Mordor":

Walking directions are in beta.
Use caution – One does not simply walk into Mordor.

ha ha ha
  12:12pm Amanda:

Adler, is all still well?
  12:17pm Adler:

Hmm, you're playing I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, right? Yeah it sounds great.
  12:17pm Amanda:

  12:23pm efd:

Hi Amanda! Hi Matt! I'm enjoying the show from the comfort of my own home today, sounds great!

And greetings to Adler, Doug, Van and all!
  12:27pm Van in Dallas:

Hi there efd, and oh yeah, fI forgot Matt was co-hosting, hi Matt!
  12:28pm Brian in UK:

Hello Amanda & Matt. Just been spending money on tasty cheeses. Mmmmmm.
  12:30pm Adler:

If I poke my head in and leave, that means something's gone horribly wrong and I'm running away
  12:36pm Amanda:

Excellent Mike -- sounds about right!

Hi Brian!
  12:37pm Amanda:

I want some tasty cheeses too!
  12:40pm EL:

Hey Amanda and Matt! We're just tuning in. Merry merry!
  12:41pm efd:

I'm going to guess, mainly for geographical reasons, that the Snow Balls record is Matt's.
  12:41pm Brian in UK:

When watching the ever wonderful Los Lobos; I loved the way David Hidalgo used to hitch up his baggy jeans after every number. Real rock 'n roll!!!
  12:42pm Amanda:

Hey E.L.! So nice to see you here! HAPPY XMAS TO YOU AND YRS!

Haha, efd, you're no fool. And you are right.
  12:42pm Brian in UK:

Beer o'clock methinks.
  12:45pm glenn:

cheese o'clock.
  12:45pm trrs:

lunch past eight
  12:47pm glenn:

hands up all wallace and gromit afficionados.
  12:47pm Amanda:

Hi glenn! And hi trrs (who I neglected before)!

[raises hand]
  12:48pm Brian in UK:

Cows Wensleydale is OK. Really recommend sheeps Wensleydale. Different class.
  12:49pm glenn:

good day, eh.
  12:49pm trrs:

Cracking good cheese, yeah.
  12:50pm Brian in UK:

I think the scene with sidecar & ladder is sublime.
  12:50pm Amanda:

Many very belated greetings to Ranger, and happy end of semester! WOOHOO!
  12:51pm glenn:

it goes beyond sublime, and touches on subgrapefruit.
  12:53pm Brian in UK:

Hitting some mid season form now, glenn.
Remember folks stay away from grapefruit if taking statins.
  12:54pm glenn:

a belated hello from monday, brian.
  12:56pm Doug S.:

CC into Jessie Mae into Rockin' Sidney into Jacob "Killer Diller" Miller! And all that leading into baddest-ass mofo of the lot, R2D2! Historic radio.
  12:58pm mchuge:

Greets Amanda! Maybe I'll see you at the Ding playing more of this groovy seasonal music.
  12:58pm Brian in UK:

Well can I take this opportunity to wish you the very best for next year glenn. I am getting a new keyboard for Christmas.
Rockers is a wonderful soundtrack, Matt.
  1:01pm glenn:

thanks. wishes reciprocated to you, and everybody else. if there were a christmas baking button on the comments board, i could press it and send y'all gingersnaps.
  1:01pm Doug S.:

I'm sorry Matt. You are not allowed to say "Ross Perot" on the stream. Please adhere to these strict guidelines.
  1:01pm Brian in UK:

Was the Crossfires really The Turtles from Battle
of the Bands?
  1:03pm Doug S.:

You could have used Pharoah Sanders's "The Creator Has a Master Plan." It has sleigh bells and is 20 freaking minutes long!
  1:03pm Brian in UK:

  1:03pm ndbob:

afternoon Amanda , Matt everyone!
  1:04pm Brian in UK:

Doug, he played it the other week. Heaven.
  1:04pm glenn:

i bet margaret thatcher was from sCUNThorpe.
  1:05pm ndbob:

When I was a freshman in college, Pharaoh Sanders was the guest artist in residence - hear him play in the dining hall.
  1:05pm Brian in UK:

Grantham, but lets not spoil a good joke.
  1:08pm Brian in UK:

Thatcher did for womens emancipation what George W Bush did for world peace.
  1:10pm Amanda:

Hi ndbob and everyone else I missed (anyone?)!

Thanks to my parents for buying me a subscription to Newsweek, the first issue of which came yesterday and has Meryl Streep as Thatcher on the cover. ?!?
  1:11pm efd:

Whoa, crazy stereo separation on this Frogs track!
  1:11pm glenn:

she's a fucking coo. thatcher, not streep.
  1:12pm glenn:

evan, it would be josh gibson's 100th b'day today.
  1:13pm Amanda:

Absolutely genius, this Frogs record. Both sides are unplayable on the regular airwaves.
  1:18pm pgw in mntclr:

missing the frogs is my punishment for being tardy
  1:19pm Amanda:

Naughty, naughty pgw!
  1:28pm glenn:

the stream is doing some weird ass shit.
  1:32pm Doug S.:

Glenn, I'm hearing the same thing. I'm also getting a ton of rebuffering today, which is unusual. Anyone else hearing weird audio glitches 'n' stuff?
  1:32pm Brian in UK:

Elvis Costello's 'Damp the Dirt Down' springs to mind.
  1:33pm Brian in UK:

Doug the only glitches I am hearing are from the records!!
  1:33pm pgw in mntclr:

why didn't i hear R. Kelly's name in the roll call?
  1:36pm Van in Dallas:

Yes I heard glitches and also the sound going down, then back up.
  1:39pm ndbob:

yep - several times in the last set
  1:43pm Van in Dallas:

Ah....that explains why I just glitched again
  1:44pm glenn:

skeeter and is it theresa?
  1:47pm glenn:

Skeeter reformed the group with Betty Jack's older sister, Georgia
  1:47pm EL:

This one is a staple in our household!
  1:47pm glenn:

holy cow, that guitar's out of tune.
  1:49pm glenn:

not that it really matters, i suppose.
  1:54pm efd:

(takes dB's record out of record bag and puts it back on shelf)
  1:54pm Brian in UK:

Reindeers games? Give us a clue.
Chase the Santa. Best of three.
Last to the North Pole is a sissy.
  1:55pm efd:

Don't worry, I'm kidding.
  1:57pm Amanda:

I was just going to say -- I am sorry! I tried to resist! (There are at least 2 db's-related LPs in the xmas bin though.)
  1:58pm efd:

I don't care if Lamin plays that song non-stop for 3 hours before my show tonight, I'm still playing it.
  1:59pm Danne D:

Merry Christmas Amanda :)
Happy Holidays Everyone :)

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs btw :)
  2:01pm Danne D:

Greetings to Matt as well :) Forgot Sir Fiveash is here for the festivities this week :)
  2:01pm Amanda:

Hi Danne! You know, sometimes you can't fly in the face of tradition.
  2:05pm ndbob:

I need to go.. excellent show and happy holidays Amanda, Matt, everyone!
  2:06pm glenn:

really, does anything sound better than stand up bass?
  2:09pm Amanda:

Electric bass! (I will speak for Matt)
  2:09pm Danne D:

Hi as well to EFD :) Will you be playing Terre T's favorite Christmas Song tonight? (even though I think she didn't play it on her own show) :)
  2:10pm Joe B:

Great track from Fishbone. I'm so old, I saw them play this when it was NEW!
  2:12pm Brian in UK:

Forgotten how much William Bell hurts.
  2:15pm Joe B:

Regarding the Crossfires, it WAS a real band pre-Turtles with Howard and Mark on saxophones. They revived the name for the Battle of the bands LP. sorry if that was explained earlier!
  2:16pm efd:

@Danne, I'd say the odds are high.
  2:17pm Danne D:

Excellent :)
  2:18pm Brian in UK:

No Joe B. Thanks for that. Thought it might have some link back to those two.
What about The Macadamia Nuts?
  2:20pm Adler:

sounds like Glen Nazario and X-Ray Fiveash
  2:21pm Danne D:

Did Vance The Puppet bring the pretzels?
  2:21pm Brian in UK:

Amanda. Please do not forget Sabre Dance in the future. Dave Edmunds is not a god, being Welsh is close though.
  2:26pm Joe B:

I'd also add that Luis and Wildfires have been my new favorite band for about 4 years!
  2:27pm Danne D:

@efd should I leave them in suspense or tell them? :)
  2:29pm Danne D:

I'll give it up :)
  2:29pm Danne D:

Shocked it only came up on accuplaylist twice as I could swear she plays it every year
  2:31pm Danne D:

"What's Happening?" references - now they really are morphing into Glenn and X-Ray :)
  2:36pm Amanda:

We are disappointed that this record is not silly enough. Our apologies.
  2:49pm Danne D:

Jesus was a commie?
  2:50pm Danne D:

whoa and he was the original #ows dude
  2:57pm Danne D:

Thank you Matt and Amanda for such a wonderful show!

Have a great Holiday :D
  2:57pm Van in Dallas:

Thanks Amanda & Matt for a nice Christmas-sy show :)
  2:57pm Adler:

clap, clap, clap
  2:57pm efd:

Finally! I can go out and run errands!

Great show you guys!
  3:00pm Brian in UK:

I go to eat dinner & you play the best record (Steve Earle).
Have a great time Amanda & Matt. Catch you on the rebop.
  3:02pm Amanda:

Thanks to all of you for listening! Happy and merry holidays to every one, with much love.
  3:03pm EL:

Great closer!
  3:04pm Doug S.:
