Afternoon, Fools! Rex's Christmas Show. Two of the best hours of the year.
  1:10pm Listener Jumpy:

Sounds great! I was spinning with the Rebel Night guys last night& Junichi told me to say "hi" to Rex.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm Marcel M:

Enjoying the holiday cheer! Rocking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm Marcel M:

That photo is awesome hehe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm ChrisB.:

Glad the pint of J&B made it safely down the chimney.
Avatar 1:13pm Mailman Tom:

Will you be playing a cut off the Jimmy Pelham album?
Avatar 1:19pm Reeshard:

So, will we be getting an in-studio Xmas party – with Rex getting trashed in the process – again this year? I sure hope so...
  1:25pm pottybear:

Looks like your wife is deep into the egg nog.
Avatar 1:29pm Reeshard:

And, yes, that is an amazing lp cover. Can always count on Rex for that seasonally appropriate touch.

happy holly days, gang!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Marcel M:

Merry Christmas all! Dancing around the apt!
  1:40pm Shawn Garrett:

Yay! Christmas In Jail!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Marcel M:

Haaaaa haha
  1:46pm Peanut:

Why do people love Christmas so much?
  1:48pm SeanG:

it's a pagan thang
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm fred:

Merry whatever everybody!
First link google gave me for Jimmy Pelham was a blog called Regrettable Music. Google searches say as much about the searcher as the target, so maybe it's just me. If so, that's kinda flattering
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I would sell my soul for one of those drinks right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm ChrisB.:

This is hilarious!
  1:56pm Tomek:

It should be titled "Gwiazdor" not "Gwaizdor" :)
  1:58pm Some Guy:

It's the subtlety I like, Mr. Light.
  1:59pm Some Guy:

Is that Jim Backus and Paul Frees?
Avatar 2:00pm Parq:

Great show so far. Lots of old favorites and lots of cool stuff I haven't heard before. The Saturday before Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without this show.
Avatar 2:00pm Reeshard:

Wow…Ed 'Kookie' Byrnes did a Xmas rekkid. I shoulda known. Yet another dividend gleaned from listening to Fool's Paradise...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm ChrisB.:

Dawes Butler, I think.
Avatar 2:01pm Parq:

Yeah, I was thinking Dawes too. Sounded just vaguely like Huckleberry Hound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm dale:

the second voice reminds me of hokie wolf or some such cartoon character -
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm dale:

well, i was close.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm dale:

actually, i was right! yay me!
  2:10pm dvbinnj:

Thanks for answering my x-mas request of Ben Light
  2:12pm Shawn Garrett:

Wow, that "Santa Claus Is Doing The Monkey" is some kinda strange thing. As is Weird Beard, who seems like a horror host or something...
  2:14pm Shawn Garrett:

You could always play "A Bite Before X-Mas" by The Cool Ghoul from The Cool Ghoul's Phantasmagorical Funky Fonograf Record
  2:15pm jonathan valdez:

what was the name of that vodka and chip drink?
Avatar 2:16pm kyle a.:

we've been excluded
  2:18pm SeanG:

I think it was "8 days of getting oiled"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I'm buying that book for my friend right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Ike:

I *want* that unsold pilot book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I've never heard anybody as happy as Gaylord is right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm dale:

that's a whole show for gaylord, just reading that. he can play the room 222 theme too if he wants
  2:26pm pottybear:

Gift Exchange
Best. Radio. Ever.
Avatar 2:37pm kyle a.:

i just caved and bought that book, too
  2:38pm Fratso:

catnip and cat naps and fat lips and flat tops - these are a few of my favorite things...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm dale:

love bachelor father! and the racist chinese house boy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Avatar 2:49pm kyle a.:

ok gaylord, next time i run into you at tiki oasis we'll have plenty of failed pilots to discuss!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Marcel M:

This is great! Amazing show thanks Rex!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Happy Hollandaise to all you guys!
Avatar 6:50pm thriftstoreleather:
