Options Bitslap with KBC: Playlist from December 21, 2010 Options

Back in 1979, I made the decision to accept Dr Demento as my personal savior. Since then, with the help of his apostles Spike, Al, Stan and Black-Eyed Susan Brown, I have made it my mission to spread the Gospel of the Firesign and the Word of the Waller. Please join me and my fellow seekers as we find the Wisdom we crave and the Rapture we deserve. A new sermon every Tuesday (and NO collection plate!).

  NOW SOUND OF XMAS

LITTLE ST NICK   Options This next set comes to us courtesy of Dennis Flannigan from Tacoma, Washington, who is one of my Xmas trading buddies. Dennis is 70-ish, and is a retired Washington State congressman, who has served a few terms in the State House. A Democrat by nature, he is a credit to the party. We could use more like him. Here's a bio: http://www.weeklyvolcano.com/entertainment/guides/2010/08/Best-of-Tacoma-2010-In-Memoriam-Dennis-Flannigan/ [his legislature page has since been taken down].

Commercial Message  PLANTER'S NUTS (Nickle Bag)   Options  
Dick 'Two-Ton' Baker  JOLLY OLD ST NICOLAS   Options No, he didn't really weigh two tons, but he sure looked like it! Here's his home page; http://twotonbaker.com/ And a YouTube of one of is better-known works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWGoVZF0jik

Music behind DJ:
Count Basie 
JINGLE BELLS   Options This next set is from the massive collection of Tim Sewell of Burbank, CA. Tim was my first trading pal back in 1997 or so and is probably the biggest Xmas collector in the country, if not the Galaxy. He tells me he has about 8000 singles (just Xmas) and no idea how many other items in his collection. While I trade with about 8-10 people a year he has over 40 on his list. In his spare time he works for the City of LA in the Water department and is an active ferrett rescuer. All bow to the power of Tim Sewell! He can be reached at xmastrader01@att.net.

Mike Driscoll  FIGGY PUDDING   Options What the hell IS figgy pudding anyway? I've never had it, but here it is: http://www.suite101.com/content/the-history-of-figgy-pudding-along-with-recipe-a176058 While we're at it what are ANY of those stupid carols about anyway? http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2010/12/15/christmas-songs-a-feast-decoded/ 
Ludlow  XMAS SHOPPING BLUES   Options No idea who this guy is, but here's another one that's related somehow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uxl8K-btX3U 
Heebie Jeebies  SOX AND UNDERWEAR   Options An innocent enough web page: http://www.heebee-jeebees.com/channel4.htm and a plethora of other stuff: http://www.heebee-jeebees.com/music_v2.htm 
Hummingbird  HOT DOG! YOU MUST BE SANTA!   Options Sorry, no info. Probably a sad story. 
Ray Campi and the Sidekicks  SOMEBODY TOOK MY TEETH ON XMAS EVE   Options Ray's actually got cred (and a Wiki): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Campi and a page in the Rockabilly Hall of Fame! http://www.rockabillyhall.com/RayCampi1.html

Music behind DJ:
Los Straitjackets 
GROOVY OLD ST NICOLAS   Options Here's a webpage that features many holiday notables (including Tim Sewell): http://www.jinglebellrocks.com/characters.html And speaking of Jon Solomon (who does the ultimate Xmas Eve show on WPRI in New Brunswick, NJ - we've never met or even texted): http://keepingscoreathome.com/ 
Jimmy Barnes  LOBSTAH FOR XMAS   Options Here's a little-known fact about kbc - he is one of the biggest collectors of lobster crap on the planet. It's one of the reasons I want to move to Maine. I literally have over 300 different type of lobster thingies, fom claw-harmonicas to lamps. Help me please... 
Monterreys  SANTA HAS GAINED MORE WEIGHT   Options
