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.

Good morning Nate and pyromaniacs

Hi Folks, today is the holiday show (Burn It Down style), should be a fun one...

i'm just pyro-curious.
hi Nate and trouble makers.

Burn Down the Holidays, Nate! Loving the show thus far!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21am Nate K:

Sorry guys, two Spectrum songs...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21am fred:

I always expect BAD to hijack this one to nowhere
  6:24am Mark R.:

Two Spectrum songs is acceptable during a holiday show. I wasn't aware that Holly Golightly recorded a Christmas song--how uplifting.
  6:29am Mark R.:

That Ventures Christmas album is cool, too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10am Nate K:

Merry Christmas everybody, thanks for dropping by today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14am fred:

Nate, yours is the first Xmas show I hear this year. I expect to be sick of that theme (and then Auld Lang Syne) very soon. I usually use these weeks to check out archives of shows out of my listening hours. So maybe I won't check in next week
  7:20am Mark R.:

Nice job avoiding the cliches, Nate--I've never heard any of these. It's always cool hearing Jimmy Reed and Albert King, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22am Nate K:

Thanks, @Mark R. I try to do my research. @Fred, I'll be out next week, but the great DJ Paul Bruno is doing his year-end best-of. It should be great.
  7:23am Mark R.:

Like who the f*** is Binky Griptite, for example? That's like a name famous people check into hotels under. "If you wish to reach Mr. Jagger, he's registered under 'Binky Graphite'."
  7:25am Mark R.:

Now James Brown--this fellow I've heard of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26am Nate K:

@Mark, love it!
  7:27am Mark R.:

Damn you, autocorrect!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31am fred:

Vicki aka People Like Us has a Christmas song of sorts, called "I'm dreaming"

Nate, looking forward to your best of 2015 show for sure in Jan! Ho Ho Ho

Buck Yeah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44am Ken From Hyde Park:

I heard about this version of The Pogues' Christmas song. There's some show from Netflix or other media source with Bill Murray. I haven't seen it yet.
  8:44am KP:

This is great. Thanks. Merry Christmas
  8:53am Mike Sin:

Waking up Xmas show. This was fun. Merry Xmas to Nate and komrades.
