If "Happy Birthday Jesus" was my xmas present I'd hunt down Santa and kill him where he stood.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:08pm Jesus:

Was that Mike Douglas from the afternoon talk show?
Did he put out an album called 7" ???
To what does that refer, anybody know? Just askin'
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:14pm EL:

Wow. From the 7".
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:15pm Barkevious Shabazz:

EFD-The xmas background is so luxurious you can almost feel it.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:15pm efd:

That's how I roll, E.L.!

  Wed. 12/21/11 9:20pm slugluv1313:

and for those celebrating Hanukkah, how about Adam Sandler's Hanukkah Song? (not a huge Sandler fan, but that song totally cracks me up!)
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:21pm justsheano:

Have a funky, funky, christmas, Evan!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:21pm Jason from Huntsville, AL:

  Wed. 12/21/11 9:22pm Jason from Huntsville, AL:

Hey, justsheano!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:22pm justsheano:

hi Jason and Brandi
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:26pm David B (chudleycannons):

baby jesus is the first glam rocker?
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:26pm David B (chudleycannons):

argh, guessed it wrong!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:27pm cheri:

evan do you have that linda hughes tune tonight?
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:28pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

Ho - la!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:28pm efd:

cheri, you've been asking for that linda hughes song for 4 years and using 2 or 3 different name. Time to move on.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:29pm efd:

@justsheano That's an excellent idea-- sorry, eggcellent idea -- but I will be forgoing the LTBB this evening to maximize the holiday tuneage.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:30pm Mike McG.:

Rock the holidays, Funk! Just like old times. Thanks for the tunes and have a great season!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:30pm efd:

Hi Holly, David B, Jason & Brandi, slugluv, Stevel et al.! Thanks tor joining me tonight!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:31pm justsheano:

I am eggcited for holiday rock! Kind of wish my kid would sing Billy Squier at her pageant tomorrow.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:31pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

OK, I think I'll step out for a minute, to er, clean catboxes. Back after Squier!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:32pm Joel:

Tell me the Upper Crust have a Christmas song.. PLEASE !!!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:33pm efd:

Joel, I wish!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:34pm Jason from Huntsville, AL:

This song used to creep me out until I figured out what the deal was. As a grown man.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:36pm Noddy Ho Ho Holder:

Luckily Slade have thousands of xmas songs.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:38pm X-mas Elf:

Am I the only one who thinks David Cassidy's voice sounds a little like Freddie Mercury's on this?
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:40pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

@Jason - good anecdote. And I'm sorry!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:40pm PB:

efd, please tell me the records you played in this set are not from your personal record collection.,
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:41pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

AUGIE - no, c'mon, you tease!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:41pm X-mas Elf:

That was the "Tiger Beat Christmas Special" portion of the proceedings
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:42pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Bobby Sherman. Retired cop.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:46pm EL:

Oh yeah.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:46pm Keeper of Records:

Evan is an archivist, PB. Documenting the history of Xmas kitsch is a tough assignment, but someone's got to do it.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:46pm Kat:

what is this I don't even...
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:48pm Danne D:

Merre Christmas everyone :)
Hiya EFD - Great show so far. The Singing Dogs brings me back to listening to WNEW-FM in my youth and of course the Billy Squier makes me pine for the Martha Quinn of yesteryear *swoon*
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:49pm Danne D:

That Mike Douglas song imparted upon me the knowledge that Mike Douglas liked to give shitty gifts ;)
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:50pm Kat:

Yo?
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:50pm Danne D:

"Hey Kids instead of something you want for Christmas, I'm giving you this song"
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:50pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

Hi Danne!
Y;know, Stiv Bators got lucky with both Martha Quinn & Bebe Buell. Kinda mindboggling!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:51pm Danne D:

Wow, EFD, paging through the comments can't help but notice that certain schtick even comes but once a year.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:52pm Danne D:

Hi Holly!!! :) Heading to NC tomorrow :)
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:52pm Stevel:

Stiv and Martha. Wow. Just wow.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:53pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

@Danne - It's HOT (currently 64F) and rainy here. Bah humbug!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:53pm efd:

Hi Danne & Kat! Tis the season I guess, Danne.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:54pm Jason from Huntsville, AL:

Good night, y'all. Keep spreading the cheer, EFD.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:56pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

Good night. Jason!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:56pm Stevel:

Wet and drizzly in Indiana. If we're lucky we'll get ICE for Xmas.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:56pm Danne D:

Good night Jason! :)
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:58pm efd:

Goodnight Jason!

Warm and rainy here in NJ as well, not much of a holiday feel.
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:58pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

OMG. Where the *heck* did you find this, efd?
Wow. Score!
  Wed. 12/21/11 9:59pm efd:

FIND it?! I BOUGHT it! Came out last year.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:01pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

OK, but only, you, Evan, would be LOOKING for a NEW Donnie Iris lp in 2010!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:01pm Kat:

It isn't really called "ah! leluiah!", is it? ...is it???
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:01pm john:

Dawnie!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:01pm Kat:

(I'm still traumatized from the Dion record, mind you.)
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:02pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Merry Christmas from everyone at Aucoin Management!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:02pm efd:

oh Kat, yes it is! How could I not get it?!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:04pm Kat:

*dumbfounded*
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:04pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

@Kat - It totally is. Called that. Totally.
Wow, again.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:09pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

Donnie Iris songs efd chose NOT to play:
alleluyah sasa! (track 9)
and
panis angelicus (track 13)
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:11pm john:

I have to agree on both counts--I also had to buy Dawnie sight unheard, and found it a little dreary. Dion is, as ever, untouchable.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:12pm glenn:

yep, and next year cheri will ask for linda hughes again.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:15pm justsheano:

Made gingersnaps for my PTA meeting tomorrow morning after the pageant, and am enjoying the show while working on PTA stuff late into the evening.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:16pm efd:

Don't even get me started about the 81 Donnie Iris vocal parts on the Alleluia Chorus.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:16pm efd:

Good work, justsheano!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:17pm justsheano:

Thanks, Evan! That means a lot!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:18pm Linda Hughes:

Can I request one fewer fan darkening my name?
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:18pm Stevel:

Making dinner for friends who just had a baby. Its Christmassy without being Christmassy!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:20pm efd:

Alright, Stevel! That *is* Christmassy!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:21pm Barkevious Shabazz:

So at this point Mike Douglas and The Ergs are battling it out for pure punk rock supremacy. Cast your votes. Messaging rates apply.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:21pm Danne D:

this set is very guitars
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:22pm Danne D:

*shakes computer hoping that there's some Harry Harrison under the tree*
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:23pm Danne D:

@barkevious envisioned a Rate-A-Record segment on American Bandstand featuring Mike Douglas and the Ergs
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:24pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

Distractedly munching on raw kale, berekase, & Smokera (pickled okra packed with hot Spanish smoked paprika) while packing for a new dogsitting gig that starts at 9 am tomorrow. Christmassy?
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:26pm Danne D:

@Holly you pack antlers for the dog to wear? If so - Christmassy
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:26pm Stevel:

Its not a singing dog, is it?
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:27pm X-mas Elf:

Never met a version of "Run Rudolph Run" I didn't like
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:27pm efd:

Not yet it isn't.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:27pm PB:

Did Chuck Berry write this because it sure does borrow liberally from Roll Over Beethovern.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:28pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

@Danne - no, but yes dog park tags - & catnip (for the cat who deigns to stay in the house while I sit the dog) Christmassy!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:28pm calzone!:

What's so wrong about long haired people? Santa Claus wants to know!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:28pm Barkevious Shabazz:

The mighty Basenji. Christmas with a tail.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:29pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

Chuck may have written, but Keith Richards does it best.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:30pm X-mas Elf:

Basenji's rock!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:30pm seang:

fleshtones version is cool too
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:32pm PB:

Award for the most cynical holiday season song of the night.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:33pm Stevel:

PB: so far.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:33pm X-mas Elf:

Guess that bumps Mike D. to #2
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:33pm Danne D:

definitely cheerful :)
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:33pm john:

Would make a perfect segue into Half Man Half Biscuit's "It's Cliched To Be Cynical At Christmas!"
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:33pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

We haven't heard Robert Earl Keen yet...
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:35pm Danne D:

a cover of everyone's favorite annoying holiday song :)
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:36pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Mike Douglas. Signpost to a better, more mature tomorrow.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:36pm Stevel:

the original makes me think of malls.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:40pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

I'm spending (part of) Christmas with a Laotian friend at a Chinese restaurant. We want to see how many of our fellow "Chinese Restaurant on Christmas" patrons ask him to refill their tea.
Outtama was raised Southern Baptist, and I was raised Congregationalist. Now we're both open-minded agnostics with a good sense of humor & a love of Szechuan!.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:44pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

The original makes me think of slitting my wrists. Vertically.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:48pm susan frieri:

can't go wrong with Slades holiday classic!!! baking off the last of my xmas cookies-
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:49pm Milly:

I was hoping for that dBs number!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:50pm Historian:

Know what they called Congregationalists 300 years ago? Puritans. :-)
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:50pm Barkevious Shabazz:

How am I spending xmas week? Watching "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" with the sound off and the Xmas Funktacular blaring. Happy Kringle.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:52pm efd:

You got it, Milly! Susan, good luck with the rest of the cookie-baking - hope you caught Slade earlier!
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:52pm G:

Driving to Maryland Friday morning after my annual car inspection is finished. My family are so spoiled that I always do all the traveling...

Was just outside. MONSOON.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:55pm PB:

Can't think of any off the top of my head but I can't imagine the Beach Boys didn't do a number of insipid Christmas songs.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:56pm john:

In fact, a whole album of insipid Christmas songs plus the sublime Little Saint Nick.
  Wed. 12/21/11 10:57pm calzone!:

Xmas with Roy Wood and Wizzard, doesnt get much better than that! Great show EFD!
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:00pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

Puritans who don't believe in hell. or the devil. And who celebrate Maundy Thursday by inviting (presumably) Catholic bagpipers to open the evening service. Never got any of that, but it was definitely my favorite service of the year.
So, pretty cool Puritans, as far Puritans go!

Also had my first tongue kiss at a Congregationist summer camp. Heh.
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:03pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

Hi Milly!
EFD, We must hear the ever so funky Milly & Silly's "Getting Down For Xmas" in Milly's honor!
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:05pm G:

Speaking of Puritan French kisses, if you want the backstory on Puritans and their real personal lives, check out _The Scarlet Letter_.

Very few out of wedlock Puritan babies happen without a tongue kiss being involved at some point.
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:05pm efd:

ooh, I'll have to see if I can track that down!

In the meantime, it's almost time for THE BEST CHRISTMAS SONG EVER RECORDED!!!!1!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:06pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

In all seriousness, my very, very favorite Christmas song just might be "Welcome Christmas" as sung by the Whos. I play it at precisely 12 am every Dec 25
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:11pm EL:

NOW it's CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:11pm Danne D:

lol
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:12pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

If you can't find Milly & Silly, you can still work the Milly(ie) theme *&* honor Noah's memory by playing De La's "Millie Pulled a Pistol on Santa"... or not...
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:12pm Joe Cool:

Here come da Claus Man
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:13pm X-mas Elf:

Hanson had a Spin Doctors vibe for Christmas
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:13pm efd:

DON'T FORGET THE DONUTS!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:14pm Danne D:

Little known fact: Santa is a part-time cop
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:15pm Joe Cool:

a mall cop? he could cut his commute way down that way
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:15pm Milly:

Well, if you play a tune like that I'll have to call my mother and wake her as 'Milly' is her collective nickname for my 2 sisters & I. It is impossible for her to recall our true names when addressing any one of us, so we're all Mildreds.
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:16pm X-mas Elf:

hysterical! "Don't mess wit da boss!"
What year?
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:17pm efd:

1997, I think
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:18pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

@Milly -
Is your Mom down with funk or hip hop?
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:21pm Stevel:

Oh yeah. That's what Xmas is all about! You put the Ho in Horny!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:22pm Old Dude with White Beard:

me so ho ho horny
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:23pm Ho Ho Ho Holly (bedecked in NC):

Back Door Santa. 'Nuf sed.
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:24pm Old Dude with White Beard:

Aint a chimney I cant slide into.
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:24pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Horned Frogs pull ahead. Go Toads!
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:24pm Danne D:

@EFD - so will we be hearing Terre-cita's favorite Christmas song? :)
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:27pm efd:

Danne, I believe we will - I'm just trying to figure out whether to play the traditional version or an updated one with heavy beatz.

One vote for original!
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:30pm Danne D:

Cool :) I'd probably vote for the original but wasn't the Heavy Beatz one in her honor?

Any nonplayed items go onto next year's Xmas show to-play list
  Wed. 12/21/11 11:34pm Danne D:

The wonderful Amanda also played this wonderful song on her show today :) Anyone who missed her show with Special Guest Co-Host Mike Fiveash should definitely check it out :)

I don't suppose anyone's ever made a clean version of easy e's "merry 'i'm very fond of your mom' xmas"?

Lovely. Another real favorite. Thank you!

lol @G :) I know the Hoof N Mouth is in March, but perhaps Evan can get the Sinfonia together for a one off and get that recorded :)

Anyhow, time to pack up. Have a wonderful holiday all. Evan thanks for a great show as always and for all you do. All the best to you and yours!
