I believe there exists an outtake of the Bonanza theme sung by the cast in which they collapse into helpless laughter.
Sat. 12/19/09 9:53am david in virginia:
hearing bonanza reminds me of the time I saw dan block eating lunch at the restaurant next to the ice skating rink at radio city music hall
Sat. 12/19/09 9:56am annie:

Sat. 12/19/09 10:12am texas scott:
nice,david.i've never seen a white christmas.i know some of youse get snow all winter and it can be a pain in the ass after a while.
a white christmas would be nice,though.
Sat. 12/19/09 10:15am Keith:
Hi Bob - I'd be happy to take credit for the Bonanza arrangement, but it was Terry's idea. It's essentially a harmolodic version of the tune - the final version is 3 takes played simultaneously.
Great show as always - the Bostic & Hawkins sides were especially nice.
Sat. 12/19/09 10:15am annie:
ok, i'm off!! groceries, etc.. bob, it's been a great show!! see you all later.. looks like the storm will head eat-north-east and we will get a smidgeon of the precip. we shall see! it's breaking up in penna..

Thanks for the Nina Bob. Always a good thing when I manage to hear your show (it's a little early here in California).
Dave M - if that M stands for Mandl - look forward to your Christmas day show that will be a nice gift to us all.
Sat. 12/19/09 10:55am paul:
This is such a nice break from Christmas music.

BB....what's up with PJ being on Swain records....thought for sure it would be on Cland
Thu. 12/24/09 4:58pm dave heasman:
Ah Red Nichols. Jazz - Delicious Hot, Disgusting Cold. You should play more old stuff. Also, another John Barry theme from 1960 that might tickle is "Never Let Go". V atmospheric.
Thu. 12/24/09 6:59pm Dave Heasman:
No, not Red Nichols. Obvs.
