Hi Daniel--happy Holidays to you! These are great demented tracks!
  9:26pm D. Blumin:

Happy Xmas, Keili! This IS Freebird! In Catalan...
  9:32pm D. Blumin:

Mary! Happy holidays to ye as well! Enjoying the snow?
It's beautiful out here in Jersey City!
  9:47pm D. Blumin:

Hiya Mama L!
Season's Greeeeetings!
  9:48pm Cheri Pi:

Pardon me, I can't place this "Kimino Sora" it's a cover right?
  9:50pm Lisa:

You so BEASTIN!, Blumin!
  9:51pm slugluv1313:

i agree with Cheri Pi, this is sounding sooooo *familiar*
  9:52pm D. Blumin:

As far as I know this ain't a cover, but it sounds a helluva lot like Galaxie 500!!!!!
Watch out fer the killer guitar solo!
  9:56pm Cheri Pi:

Ahhhh, yes, that's exactly it.
  10:07pm Ike:

I used to love Think Tree. Still have one of their CDs around here somewhere with a great song called "Monday A.M. First Thing" and they had a cool, bizarre video on 120 Minutes; not sure if it was that song or "Rattlesnake."
  10:11pm Tim Serpas:

Yes yes! Alan Parsons!
  10:15pm D. Blumin:

Ike, they had a big song in Boston called Hire a Bird! Remember that one? I think that mightbe what you're thinkin of...
I have no idea why Holy Cow didn't make the comp... Holy Cow!
Hiya Tim!
  10:32pm pauldepiperssoninpurgatory:

beautiful music. i go sleepy time now with perfect soundtrack. its 4.30am in berlin . goodnight good peoples
  10:35pm D. Blumin:

Good night, Paul from Berlin!
Thx fer tuning in...
- From peoples in beautiful snowy Jersey City...
  10:35pm Ike:

Nope, I definitely never heard "Hire a Bird!" I'd remember that one. I had/have the album "Like the Idea." It has a baby holding a bottle of liquor on the cover. It also included "Holy Cow." Took me a while to figure out that song was mocking bigots, not actually anti-Hindu.
  10:38pm dave:

amazing show. where can i get my hands on that vernon wray's "Facing All the Same Tomorrows"?
  10:42pm D. Blumin:

Dave, check heres:
  11:00pm dave:

that song just gently woke me out of a restfull nap where i was dreaming it was snowing here in santa cruz california and a gaggle of geese and their babies had crowded around my house. cool. p.s. do you know which album Vernon's 'Facing All the Same Tomorrows" is on? thanks again, from no cold santa cruz, dave
  11:15pm D. Blumin:

  11:30pm ABQ Gringo:

No. Be safe on the drive!
  11:37pm D. Blumin:

I'm taking them underground trains, Gringo!
Hope they keep me safe as houses!
Whatever that's supposed to mean...
  11:48pm george of troy:

  12:10am Ike:

I was just shuffling around in the powdery snowfall in my duck boots while listening on a Walkman. Fun times! And "Bach vs. Laibach" must be the greatest album title all year. Or this week anyway.
  12:19am D. Blumin:

A walkman! Daaaaaayumn, Ike! How you keepyr working fer some years? Mine crashed and burned yonks ago...
Looks like I'll be keeping you company awhile longers - seems like the Professor is being detained by Evil.
  12:35am Mary Wing:

*mwah* Thanks for plugging my fill-in! (Oh, that sounds a bit naughty.)

This show has been excellent from top to bottom! Plus we get bonus Blumin, how delightful.

All this singing saw reminded me of the 'Saw Lady' (aka Natalia Paruz) at the Union Square subway station. Here is 'Silent Night' in the subway:
Happy Holidays!
