Ah, Martin Mull. A fellow alumni, different year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm KidProJoe:

Is this background to represent what it was like to be Martin Mull in the 70s?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm loveless:

The background does remind me of one of his paintings!

I've always loved Billy Squires' christmas song but just dawned on me that it's "killer Queen" with different lyrics. Not that thats a bad thing,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Richard S:

I wish we could hear more non-standard holiday songs on the radio. The same old stuff is SO BORING! Here's a YouTube playlist of some of my faves (all Safe For Work):

Ho ho hello EFD, Medson, Ken, everybody! I think I'll have a seizure if I stare at this background too long but luckily I'm wrestling with a scanner driver.
  Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Julie M:

Ah, heck. I missed the Kinks. Am immensely enjoying the snowy background on the comments board, though. For all who have to shovel, may this be all the snow we see. I love snow, but I be too old...
  9:48pm Mike tp:

just entered the room.seen years ago Martin mull N his fabulous furniture in concert.very faded memory....

Hey wait a second, "mr grinch is also killer queen

@Jack - If you turn your display upside down, you can watch champagne bubbles rising to the top.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm efd:

hey everyone! Thanks all for tuning in, and thanks commenteers for commenting! Sorry for not being as active as usual but it's a little tough to stay ahead of this show for some reason!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Not to mention shoveling snow off of Turntable 3!
Avatar 9:59pm herb.nyc:

Yo, nice Xmas songs, Evan. I saw play "noura" earlier, and they had middle eastern Xmas songs.

Dope jam

Hands down, best Christmas song of all time!

Oh snap I missed Billy Squier. Welp, that's what gold stars were made for!

thanks Roberto, and the same to you!
Avatar 10:52pm herb.nyc:

Love this Future Wife song. Young Jean Lee was covered in a vg NYTimes Sunday mag article, within past year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Stevel:

Nice to hear Foxx Bodies are supporting NAMI. A strong organization that made a huge difference for our family. Look them up in your area if you have family members suffering from mental illness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Stevel:

Also, I am likely to have a seizure watching the "snow" fall on this page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm efd:

@Stevel you and Hoboken Jack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm DouglasInDallas:

EF, what was the name of the band you played exactly 50% of on Wake and Bake? I dug around some and found, not only a Cat Stevens connection but also a Thin Lizzy connection...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm efd:

um um um... I'm not sure now! I'll have to check my scripts! Maybe The Troops?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Richard S:

Nice to see that all this snow isn't piling up at the bottom of our monitors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm efd:

that would be a good trick for next year
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm WO Town Wick:

I'm not saying I love it, but I am kind of digging this Hanson song.

Oh, and I have only slept about 4 hours in the past 3 days.
Avatar 11:20pm Roberto:

Dang, Hanson rocks!

Hoboken Jack is a sensitive individual, such as myself.
