Hi BB and commentators - have just returned from local xmasy shopping mall....and, notwithstanding its homogenised demographic, I felt an emotional anti-xmas icecap gradually start to thaw, in front of me very own eyes.

Morning Bob. Loving the show. Wondering if you would be including R. Stevie in this set. His Phonography certainly fits the bill as a great first album by a solo artist.
  12:12am Jay S:

Oh, it's "Hey Grandma" ... I thought they were saying "Dave Van Ronk."
