Listener comments!

  Thu. 12/24/09 6:03am Chuck:

Morning! How else were you ever gonna get this one in, except with no theme...
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:04am Meghan:

I figured it was only appropriate due to me playing this a year ago.....
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:07am Chuck:

Last show of the year too... Don't know what to expect from you today... With a theme I could at least take a guess, now I have no idea what you're gonna play! Should be a fun one!
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:08am Meghan:

We got one more! The Dead People show.... Yeah i am not sure what i am going to play either.... something happy
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:11am Chuck:

Ooops! I forgot about New Year's eve.... I'm just thinking about getting through this week... Wing it, kiddo!
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:12am jeff p:

Have a great show! we're just heading out of town. Merry CHRISTmas, everyone, esp the cantankerous Jew!
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:13am Meghan:

Awwww Thanks Jeff! the Jew says thanks Thanks Jeff, you dirty bastard!
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:13am jeff p:

  Thu. 12/24/09 6:16am Meghan:

Good Morning Rodri! Happy Day before... before what... we don't know, but happy Thursday!
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:18am Dave B:

  Thu. 12/24/09 6:22am Dave B:

Good morning! Festivus Theme, HA!
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:25am Chuck:

Putting anything on your pet is stupid, Jess! Why do people do that? The animal doesn't care what day it is! They don't have calanders...
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:29am Chuck:

I just know my cat, G'Kar, wouldn't permit it...
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:31am Rodri:

happy thay before!!! before tomorrow!
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:33am Dave B:

Would "Boxing Day" be the the English version of "Feats of Strength"?
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:41am Chuck:

Not too many opportunities to play ethnic stuff, Meg... Is that why you're taking advantage now?
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:46am Chuck:

Well that leaves Leonard Cohen out of this show then! Ha!
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:54am Dave B:

  Thu. 12/24/09 6:55am Meghan:

Oh wow..... scary!
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:58am Chuck:

That guy was just plain annoying...
  Thu. 12/24/09 6:59am Cheri Pi:

No theme!? You're messing with my mind!
  Thu. 12/24/09 7:00am Meghan:

I know! I am equally messing with my mind as well... so no worries....
  Thu. 12/24/09 7:00am Dave B:

  Thu. 12/24/09 7:05am Derek in DC:

I always thought Billy Mays was hot. The perfect bear-type.
  Thu. 12/24/09 7:06am Meghan:

My landlord is a bear....
  Thu. 12/24/09 7:06am Chuck:

What did he die of anyway? He wasn't really old...

  Thu. 12/24/09 7:08am Dave B:

Chuck - I think it was a cocaine induced heart attack or something
  Thu. 12/24/09 7:08am Meghan:

Wow, go Dave go!
  Thu. 12/24/09 7:10am Chuck:

Coke explains his "in yer face" style of selling I guess... Figures...
  Thu. 12/24/09 7:13am Chuck:

Meghan, you'll have to play Jim Carrol Bands "People Who Died" next week... It's appropriate on two counts...
  Thu. 12/24/09 7:13am Cheri Pi:

Dear Santa, if you're reading this I would really like the Flying Nun 25th anniversary box set.
  Thu. 12/24/09 7:14am Meghan:

Oh Dear Santa- if you are handing out box sets.... send one here too!
  Thu. 12/24/09 7:17am Dave B:
