When i was a kid, i wrote a letter to Stephen King. He sent me a little booklet with a story about a possessed toy.

Happy Crimble, Roger & Amanda!
  Sat. 12/22/18 9:10am David in London:

I’m sure the fact that accent makes it sound like he’s saying ‘f--- the happy Christmas party’ was purely coincidental...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/22/18 9:12am Amanda:

A very good Krimble to you and yours, Greg!

David, I cleaned up your comment for the kidz. :-)

Whoops, sorry. Thanks Amanda, seasonal etiquette breach...

@Granny that's neat! When I was young I didn't know you could write to your favorite writers.

Hi Roger and Amanda! I'm 85% certain that Yah Das Ist Ein Christmas Tree is from the Animaniacs Christmas Special
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/22/18 9:22am Granny Spicy Tuna:

melinda, i have no idea where i got the idea that i could write to a famous author. I found a creepy toy in a thrift store and thought, "I should send this to Stephen King." And so i did. I think these days the kids probably interact with their faves on social media?
  Sat. 12/22/18 9:27am Andrew in Etobicoke:

Does anyone in the comments section have ADHD?
  Sat. 12/22/18 9:27am tadpoles:

Who are the "6 members total"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/22/18 9:28am Amanda:

Thanks @NotaRealDoctor! A search confirms that it was first released in '53. But I can believe it was re-released!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/22/18 9:28am melinda:

Granny one of my best friends in college told me she wrote to Judy Blume and Norma Klein (another favorite kids'/young adult fiction writer of mine) and I was jealous! No one told me you could do that and it didn't occur to me. They probably do social media now, yeah.
  Sat. 12/22/18 9:29am chalmers:

I think that refers to Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe along John, Paul, George and Ringo

@Andrew I have adult-onset impaired attention.

Thanks for beating me to the answer, Superintendent @chalmers!
  Sat. 12/22/18 9:30am tadpoles:

I think you're right #Chalmers. Thanks. There's tons of references to the "5th" Beatle but never the "6th". Cheers.

I'm just gonna say it: I don't trust Mr. Johnson.
Avatar Sat. 12/22/18 9:34am dale:

what's missing is what the cartoon so odd - a laugh track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/22/18 9:38am Amanda:

Everyone needs to laugh heartily at home to make up for it!
  Sat. 12/22/18 9:39am Andrew in Etobicoke:

@Andrew yes, sort of. I was half-joking with the diagnostic label which I made up myself, but I do have impaired attention from brain fog along with chronic fatigue, no clear source.

Happy Solstice! Have any WFMU DJs done a Solstice program?

@Melina,
Would you like to talk about it via email?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/22/18 9:52am Amanda:

@Greg, there was something funky going on with the CD, so hold tight and we'll play it in another format!

@Andrew sure, feel free to contact me through my profile.

There was a problem on 91.1. The signal was strong and clean, but there was no audio. Now it's back. Spoke too soon; it's down again.

Is this the new version of "Silent Night"????

Had to pass this on:

One night, a Viking called Rudolph the Red was looking out of his window when he suddenly said, "It's going to rain."
His wife asked "How do you know?"
He said "Because Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear."
