  9:27am annie:

nice to see you scott.
  9:28am texas scott:

howdy,annie.gettin snow for christmas,are ya?
  9:29am dale:

ah, thanks brian.
  9:53am Jim B:

I believe there exists an outtake of the Bonanza theme sung by the cast in which they collapse into helpless laughter.
  9:53am david in virginia:

hearing bonanza reminds me of the time I saw dan block eating lunch at the restaurant next to the ice skating rink at radio city music hall
  9:56am annie:

scott, we already have snow.. ;) and i just heard that today is "hug a ginger" day..
  10:01am david in virginia:

  10:12am texas scott:

nice,david.i've never seen a white christmas.i know some of youse get snow all winter and it can be a pain in the ass after a while.
a white christmas would be nice,though.
  10:15am Keith:

Hi Bob - I'd be happy to take credit for the Bonanza arrangement, but it was Terry's idea. It's essentially a harmolodic version of the tune - the final version is 3 takes played simultaneously.
Great show as always - the Bostic & Hawkins sides were especially nice.
  10:15am annie:

ok, i'm off!! groceries, etc.. bob, it's been a great show!! see you all later.. looks like the storm will head eat-north-east and we will get a smidgeon of the precip. we shall see! it's breaking up in penna..

  10:34am paul:

Scratch that.
  10:46am Steve:

Thanks for the Nina Bob. Always a good thing when I manage to hear your show (it's a little early here in California).

Dave M - if that M stands for Mandl - look forward to your Christmas day show that will be a nice gift to us all.
  10:55am paul:

This is such a nice break from Christmas music.
  3:09pm joe McCloskey:

BB....what's up with PJ being on Swain records....thought for sure it would be on Cland
  4:58pm dave heasman:

Ah Red Nichols. Jazz - Delicious Hot, Disgusting Cold. You should play more old stuff. Also, another John Barry theme from 1960 that might tickle is "Never Let Go". V atmospheric.
  6:59pm Dave Heasman:

No, not Red Nichols. Obvs.
