Music for the revolution in my head: choogling punks; power pop, both skinny-tied and long-haired; soul shouters and girl groups; bubblegum and acid rock; global fuzz; weirdos and outsiders, and the Weirdos and the Outsiders; Archie Shepp and J. Geils. Plus, live bands.

...if a tree is fashionably unfashionably 1st in the forest - & no one is there to ignore it, is it still unignored - ?? No matter, for Sister Rosetta goes before us...

I see they have not yet placed the matches out of your reach, Nate. So be it.
Good morning. I am here once again to warm myself in the glow of your conflagration.

Don't forget the cigarette holder to go with the turtleneck, Nate.

Sem, always essential.
Avatar 8:32am Sem Chumbo:

Radio shows this time of year are the aural equivalent of log-in-the-fire DVD's. Bless you, Nate, for your fearless determination not to be counted among them. Burning down the seasonal shibboleths is, in my opinion, essential. Thank you very much.

Nice desription, Chem.
  8:42am Mark:

There's a plethora of alternative Christmas tunes that haven't been played to death--some very surprising ones. Haven't heard Jimi's "Little Drummer Boy" yet this year. I had a great vinyl LP, "The Stash Christmas album" with all kinds of old jazz people like Fats Waller on it. Can't find it, and on Amazon they're asking over $200 for it!
  8:43am Mark:

So thanks for digging out some gems for us, Nate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51am Nate K:

My pleasure, Mark.
