So I guess the theme is goodbye to 2015 and the blackbird is 2015??
  Thu. 12/31/15 9:32am HDF:

13 ways of listening to a blackbird. I can remember a series of casio keyboards i had as a kid that would play 'bye bye blackbird' as a preset if you punched in the right code

hi/bye annie.
Can you play something from the new Horrendous album?

Red wing blackbirds are cool, but the less common yellow headed blackbird is a fine bird as well.

nothing is never normal with this show.
He doesn't usually play 3 hours of one song, though.

and there's infinitely more death metal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/31/15 9:44am Parq:

Somebody should have told Anthony Newly that Sinatra could pull off that type of Daddy-o lyrical riffing because he was Sinatra. And thanks for playing Miles, my personal favorite take on the song.

Is this really gonna be the whole three hours? It'll be kind of like a baseball no-hitter --the closer he gets to pulling it off, the more of a nail-biter it'll be.

My new year's resolution is five-fold. Quit drinking, quit smoking, lose weight, call my mother more, and get some virtual reality glasses.
  Thu. 12/31/15 10:04am neil who is WILD, man:

Assuming each one is, on average, 3:30 long means he needs about 51 discrete songs with no repeats. Good luck Chris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/31/15 10:06am crateslinger:

In summation, my new year's resolution is to stop being a loser and become wonderful.

I been hyp-no-tized! I read on Wikipedia that this song may be about a prostitute leaving the business to go back and live with her mother. Also, Tiny Tim covered this!
  Thu. 12/31/15 10:11am neil who is WILD, man:

OH, my bad, he needs sixty assuming the average song is 180 seconds long....not like I said earlier....

So far, 1962 has the most Blackbird of any year!

Much better than that public radio station that plays "what are you doing New Year's Eve " for the entire day.
  Thu. 12/31/15 10:44am smallybiggs:

There's something offputting about this Spanish
  Thu. 12/31/15 10:45am JimmyfromKearny:

In a 1980 film, "Melvin and Howard" Jason Robards, who played Howard Hughes, sang this song while Paul LeMat drove...

Actually for the big finale, Chris could take a call from Jimmy at 11:55 and have him sing this song over the air. And then he could mark it on the playlist as a 2015 rendition.

Neil I think so. Somebody named Marta anyway. That was "umbrella house". I think they own it now. I knew a lot of folks there, but that was a more serious house and I was one of the snotty drunken punks that kept the working people up at night.
