In college, our friend Garth would call Q98 and request "Time of the Season" on a daily basis.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37am listener james from westwood:

The Spider-Man movie has gotten good reviews from a broad range of my Twitter follows, if that helps/you haven't seen it.
  9:38am GListener MW:

Aquaman was surprisingly fun; it does end in a big LOTR-esque battle of the 7 kingdoms or something to that effect
  9:40am GListener MW:

Agreed re: the animated Spider-Man movie; a kinetic lava lamp of a popcorn film. Mega fun feast for the eyes

This is all feeling just right to me. Thanks!

Jonathan, the IFC (old Waverly Theater) on 3rd St. & 6th Ave is playing It's a Wonderful Life today -10:55 AM, 1:30 PM, 4:15, 7,

Thanks for the tip that sounds promising TDK.

..and Film Forum, on West Houston, is showing "Christmas with Nat King Cole" at 3 pm, among the other art/indie movies.

ashestoashes, thanks! This is Ann-Margret as Tommy's mother. Gotta have some fun, eh?
Avatar 10:12am TDK60:

..Village East Cinema, on 2nd Ave. & 12th St., has no classics today; it does have much showing, incl. that new film @ Queen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am melinda:

I've really been enjoying your fill-in spots, Jonathan! Always interesting to be digging the sounds and not recognize a single name on the playlist.
Avatar 10:20am TDK60:

AMC Village, on 3rd Ave. & 11th, has the big new movies: Spiderman, Aquaman, Ralph Breaks The Internet, etc.

  10:23am Andrew in Etobicoke:

Thanks for the John Cale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23am melinda:

ok, I know John Cale.
Avatar 10:25am TDK60:

Melinda: me too; Cale the only one I know. ho ho!
  10:30am Andrew in Etobicoke:

Buy the entire John Cale catalogue, you folks.
Avatar 10:32am TDK60:

Regal Battery Park Stadium 11 has all that stuff too, 102 North End Ave., maybe closest to PATH train from WFMU Towers. // Cale's great. did-you-know?: Cale spoke Welsh before learning English.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33am melinda:

Hi Andrew!
  10:34am Andrew in Etobicoke:

Read Cale`s autobiography, if you can find it for cheap.
What`s Welsh for Zen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35am melinda:

@TDK interesting. Wales has the highest rate of Gaelic-language speakership in the UK, if I remember correctly.
  10:35am Andrew in Etobicoke:

Hi Melinda,
Merry Christmas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37am melinda:

I think I have one Cale CD. I need to organize all my music and reacquaint myself with what I have.
  10:39am Mike tp:

Merry Christmas everyone.your show preparation is to our great delight.a movie suggestion with James Stewart Margaret sullavsn Frank Morgan the shop around the corner...love !!!!!
Avatar 10:40am TDK60:

Andrew, the New York Public Library has the Cale bio! Will check it out soon...
  10:40am schwartzy:

Jonathan, We are loving your fill-ins this holiday!!! So just where would you recommend exploring in NYC today/Xmas day?? We are wanting to wander around today, in search of fun and photo ops in a "barren matrix.." Any suggestions most appreciated!
  10:42am Andrew in Etobicoke:

Get Cale`s Fragments Of A Rainy Season.
Amazon has a 4 cd set for cheap.
Avatar 10:42am Jherweg:

I think China Town is the place to hang on XMas Day... go to Nom Wah Tea parlor!!
  10:43am Andrew in Etobicoke:

You will not be disappointed.
Avatar 10:51am TDK60:

..interested in another, older Welsh artist?: the audio records of Dylan Thomas are good old school poetry; A Child's Christmas in Wales was rec. in 1952, released on Caedmon Rec. in '64. incredible voice. (audio is on youtube)
  10:54am schwartzy:

groovy jherweg, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56am melinda:

While we're talking about things Welsh, Hinterland is a detective series on Netflix that was filmed in and around Aberystwyth. I visited there in the 90s and it was cool to see locations I recognized, plus many more I didn't. The landscapes are amazing.
Avatar 11:04am TDK60:

..go to Union Square and watch the Xmas vendors close down? ..a ride on the Staten Island Ferry?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Andrew Waterloo:

this is much nicer than christmas music
  11:12am Andrew in Etobicoke:

Way better than Christmas music.

Saki-Bomb struck both of us listening as resembling a meditation-enhancing, brain wave entraining track.

Hey Jonathan!
Avatar 11:30am Franco Twinkie:

This is a perfect sound track for a Los Angeles tradition. On KTLA, channel 5 they show a log burning in the fireplace for your Christmas pleasure. Of course, their music is absolute crap.
Avatar 11:33am Franco Twinkie:

That one is hard to find, Jonathan. I've been looking in the Cal Tjader bins for years! No luck.
