  1:40pm El santeen:

In the late sixties, Huey Meaux, spent three years in prison for conspiracy to violate the Mann Act —specifically, for transporting an underage female across state lines to a disc jockey convention in Nashville.

He had always maintained that he didn’t know the girl was a minor but admitted she was taken along to entertain the deejays with sexual favors—“a favor for a favor” was his business credo.

My dad, rest his soul, loved his stingers. We used to go to a restaurant in the Adirondack high peaks called the "Steak and Stinger". Dad's idea of heaven.
  1:57pm Listener Robert:

The last mention of stingers I remember was by Bob & Ray.

Sunday morning Dec 25 EST on Decades TV



"Jeff is hired by a movie executive who suspects the attempted murder of a parade Santa during a televised event may have been an attempt on the life of the actress sitting beside him."



"December 24, 1930. That evening, Hap Levinson is playing Santa Claus at the Sackman Orphan Home. Santa brings toys and ice cream to all the waifs. He walks outside, waves good-bye, and is promptly machine-gunned to death by hoods in a speeding car. Quite a shock for all the kiddies. Killing Santa is not a federal crime, but Eliot Ness investigates."

I know everybody jokes about it, but I seriously love listening to the "cocktails and gift exchange" every year.

I lived in Poland last summer. Getting good kielbasa was a matter of walking into the nearest store. Good times.
  2:34pm mailman George:

You guys make working overtime on Christmas Eve a bit more bearable. Can we get some color commentary on the "Claus Reviver"? Is it green?
  2:46pm Marc15:
