Hey Cowdogs and DJ... digging this reggae Christmas track... I just posted a ZANY AF “Christmas” song... me singing in front of the store I work at. Check it out & SMASH that like button... or whatever. And happy solstice or whatever you celebrate this time of year to keep from going insane and stepping into the steet and methodically knocking people’s hats off to paraphrase Her Man Mellville

looks like you’ve been hear Paul? happy Hanukkah!!

*heard
  8:20pm Listener Robert:

I'm LOL about these recent selections. First, playing Christmas-associated pieces in a Jewish-associated style. Then, transposing a songs about gaiety into a minor key. And finally, in one case, messing with the rhythm of something from a ballet that's meant to be danced to. All together: genius!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm maestroso:

Love Otava YO!
  8:24pm Listener Robert:

So what was the story with the Cypriot stuff? The classic "van broke down"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Rob W:

Hi Listener Robert! Actually my segment with the band from Cyprus, Monsieur Doumani, will air in early 2020 (probably in February) - it's something that's already recorded but I recorded it at WOMEX in Europe and I discovered I'm missing some audio that I need to have uploaded for me. My bad - I should have double-checked before promoting it! But it will definitely air, it's just a matter of when...
  8:40pm Listener Robert:

Thanks, Rob W. I'm enjoying this substitute programming quite well.

Some day you're going to have to explain your old openings, though. Your current one fits the show a lot better; its predecessors I could never figure out.
  8:41pm Nico Alonso:

Amazing show! Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Smilty69:

Wonderful show, Rob. Thanks and Happy Holidays everybody!
  8:49pm Listener Robert:

Yes, the FMA has recently passed into new hands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bas NL:

Thanks Rob! What a great worldly Christmas selection! Everybody happy holidays!
