Listener comments!

  8:11pm Atwater Kent:

Hola, MAC, Merry Festivus.
  8:15pm Listener Robert:

So this is the voice the Old Codger does!
  8:16pm Atwater Kent:

The Old Codger is Scrooge
  8:17pm tinkle bear:

now we know where old codger gets his voice...
and now we know where neo-liberals/neo-conservatives get their love for austerity.
  8:20pm JakeGould:

Please, sir. I want some more!
  8:21pm Listener Robert:

Notice also the similarity of names William S. Battis & Wm. S. Burroughs.
  8:25pm Tom Gervat:

Great selections tonight - the Columbia Stellar Quartet were among the three top quartets during those years, along with the Shannon and Peerless Quartets. So many of the great soloists would come together in the quartets and in groups like the Trinity Choir and Victor Mixed Chorus records. Even some of the Christmas recordings were done in Victor's Camden studio and in NYC on hot summer days. Eavesdropping on wonderful moments a century later!
  8:33pm tinkle bear:

public relations for the NSA needs to catch up to santy claus
  8:35pm Listener Robert:

Was Ernest Hare trying to sound like a BLACK Santa Claus? Interesting delivery.
  8:43pm Atwater Kent:

with declamation , harmonium accompaniment and church bells ... nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm redkayak:

Happy Holidays!
