  Sat. 12/24/11 11:08am T-Zero:

Happy holidays, Steve. Thanks for filling in.
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:11am Brian in UK:

Hello Steve, mrmurcho, annie, T-Zero, just getting dark here. Santa's firing up the straight six.
Lucinda sings this one?
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:13am Caryn:

Love this song!
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:15am Steve Krinsky:

Buenos Dias all.
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:15am T-Zero:

Merry Christmas, Brian. Not even noon here yet and I had a late morning (sort of). Missed Bill Mac ;(... woke up mid Shruken Planet.
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:21am arn:

Greetings, what was that track playing about 5 minutes ago when I got off my car, the instrumental full of chicken-picking guitars and stuff? Thankx
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:22am Brian in UK:

Same to you T-Z. He was on top form.
Steve, any thoughts on Doug Paisley?
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:24am T-Zero:

@Brian: I bet. I was sad... really wanted to tune in while he was live rather than listen to the archive.
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:24am Scott:

Hate to be nit-picky, but John Doe has always been the bassist in X. Tony Gilkyson was their guitarist for several years, before Billy Zoom rejoined. I don't know anything about Tony and Eliza's dad Terry working with the Byrds, but he wrote "Memories Are Made of This," "The Bare Necessities" and a bunch of other memorable songs. Otherwise, sounding great, Steve!
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:35am `Chip:

Come on, you were doing so good. Enough with the Greensleeves crap!
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:39am Steve Krinsky:

Hey, Chip, who's the Scrooge here?!
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:41am Parq:

Hmm, I was just about to say that it's always a pleasure to hear Trane's 'Greensleeves', but I dunno what that will prompt Chip to say.
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:41am `Chip:

One more and I'm switching to WSOU
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:42am T-Zero:

Heh, I don't care for Coltrane, butit'll pass... We all have different tastes in what appeals...

Nice show, Steve. Been enjoying it.
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:43am D. Lux G.:

Chip, Quit while your Ahoy!
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:45am T-Zero:

@Steve K, btw, I think this is the first time I've heard one of your programs.
  Sat. 12/24/11 11:45am Hugh:

Good morning, Steve, Annie--Good Evening Brian;
Great to hear you on air again Steve, nice tunes, had enough of all that washed-out Xmas crap this season. It's always a pleasure to listen to one your shows. Happy Solstice!

  Sat. 12/24/11 12:05pm Joe S:

Hey Steve, one of your students is up in the Catskills and wants to hear your show. Can't get 90.1. Any alternatives?
  Sat. 12/24/11 12:06pm Steve Krinsky:

Hi CJ & Joe. Cold up there? Hope the music warms you up.
  Sat. 12/24/11 12:07pm glenn:

really? there's a hanna barbera world? don't tell dolly parton, or she'll want her own world. oh. never mind.
  Sat. 12/24/11 12:07pm Steve Krinsky:

Hucklebuck was (is) a late 1940s R&B instrumental hit that turned into a cottage industry of songs, later with lyrics, covered by many many people. You can read about it in LCD, the (now defunct) WFMU magazine, online. Check it out.
  Sat. 12/24/11 12:09pm T-Zero:

@glenn: Paul "Hucklebuck" Williams, R&B saxaphonist

Doh! Steve just said ...

  Sat. 12/24/11 12:26pm T-Zero:

@glenn: Only animated ...
  Sat. 12/24/11 12:26pm D. Lux G.:

Sorry Glenn, but there is a Dr. Suess World!
  Sat. 12/24/11 12:27pm Brian in UK:

glenn, there is one in your head.
Steve, this is a heady mix of musicians.
  Sat. 12/24/11 12:27pm T-Zero:
