Who wouldn't want an endless puppy package?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Stanley:

At last! A Christmas song I can relate to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm listener james from westwood:

My mother would have laughed hard enough to wet herself at the opening of this song. Her son's not far behind.
  12:07pm P-90:

Ho ho ho, it's the Christmas Scenario! Glad tidings to you, Amanda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

A most solemn and productive Festivus to you all.
Avatar 12:12pm Dominick:

I got a lotta problems with you people, and you're going to hear about it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Stanley:

Cheech and Chong. Far out man!

Hey everyone! I'm glad you could join me on this foggy Festivus morn.

Cheech and Chong! An old fashioned Parq family Christmas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Ike:

Off-topic: I don't know who's on the main channel right now, but it doesn't sound like Duane's musical stylings to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Ike:

Oops never mind, I am dumb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Jeff Golick:

Here we go yo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm listener james from westwood:

Ahhhh, Run-D.M.C., always a holiday fave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Parq:

Run-DMC reminds me. See "Jingle Bell Rocks"! Not only the most WFMU Christmas movie ever, but also one of the warmest, most personal documentaries I've ever seen on any topic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Matt F:

Just in time! This is best one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Amanda:

Yip yip
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Parq:

I've been waiting years for someone to do a guitar-driven version of that Guaraldi piece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm listener james from westwood:

Crom-Tech: Conan the Barbarian's Internet startup?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Parq:

So, if I understand it correctly, the point of that Crom-Tech track is that we should have a holly jolly Christmas.
  12:42pm Artie Haywire:

Thanks for the good Xmas cheer, Ananda! Busy wrasslin' packages into the sleigh (VW), and this is just the ticket.
Avatar 12:42pm Dominick:

Simon was named after Liberty Records chairman Simon Waronker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Amanda:

I guess it makes sense that he has a good ear for the heavy jams then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm listener james from westwood:

BTW, Amanda, speaking of chipmunk-y vocals, Cheyenne played the "We're Not Candy" PSA from your premium earlier this week during her fill-in. Was good to hear it again!
  12:44pm P-90:

This is SO 1968
  12:46pm Artie Haywire:

@Parq: Caught the Lowe/Straightjackets stage show this year. I grinned to the point of levitation when they broke out that Guaraldi. Perfect treatment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm listener james from westwood:

Whoa, taking on the motherlode of Xmas grouchery-grinchery! (Didn't Scalia use that term in the marriage equality dissent?)
  12:47pm nanantatee:

Yay brilliant Amanda :D
  12:47pm P-90:

Hot damn, Amanda!
Avatar 12:47pm Dominick:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Amanda:

@Artie Haywire -- So cool. I wish we could've gone to the show when they came here, but it conflicted with my fam's holiday party! Everyone says it was magical.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Amanda:

"We're Not Candy" is 100% genius. The voices, the lyrics, the puppets... perfect.
  12:52pm P-90:

Johnny in his Edward Lear mode... miss him, still
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Amanda:

Hey @nanantatee - long time no see! Glad to see you here.
Avatar 12:53pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Beatle's Christmas Record- We're Officially in the Season!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Jeff Golick:

Slightly unbelievable that news of the Beatles music being available for streaming services tomorrow is a significant "event," still.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Mike East:

I'd like to see a documentary made about Mal Evans
Avatar 12:55pm Brian in UK:

Is this the real Hubert Khaury?
Avatar 12:56pm Brian in UK:

Hubert was unusual.
Avatar 12:57pm KevinfromBayRidge:

@Jeff. If Tiny Tim music was available, That would BE significant!
Avatar 12:57pm Brian in UK:

Hello Miss Amanda and seasons greetings.
  12:57pm P-90:

@Mike: that's a fab idea, maybe not just about Mal, maybe one or two others in the inner circle of supporting characters too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Parq:

Just finished the tree. Amanda's "Grinch" struck the perfect final note.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Mike East:

@P90- good call. Lets get on it in the new year.
  1:06pm P-90:

Good ol' "Dave Seville" was not a hugely gifted vocalist, but he had a real pro's feel for how to deliver a Jazz-Pop ballad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Amanda:

Hello Brian! And a hearty greeting to one and all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm listener james from westwood:

The trumpety noise Kramer makes at the dinner when he tells Frank his holiday is a little too much for him kills me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Amanda:

I am really excited to be going home for xmas and leaving this afternoon. But part of me wishes I could skip the "being in Penn Station" part of the whole experience
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm listener james from westwood:

Happy for another round of Sir Alec!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm Parq:

Okay, does anyone else find the Cherry Tree Carol a little creepy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Amanda:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm Stevel:

Parq: Nope. Its a LOT creepy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Mike East:

Penn Station has some pretty nice holiday decorations this season...doesn't make me want to be there any longer than I have to, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm listener james from westwood:

This was a refresher for me; it's been ages since I saw this one. Good to hear the more recent Xmas eps have been good, seeing as the regular non-holiday eps have been meh of late, or so I hear.
Avatar 1:39pm Roberto:

I used to live across the hall from Frank Constanza.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Stevel:

Amanda: Wishing you safe travels and a brief visit to Penn Station. You bring joy to my life and quite a few others if the comments board is any indication. Thank you. Be good to yourself.
Avatar 1:45pm Dominick:

and a beer
  1:46pm nanantatee:

Happy holidays Amanda! Love that your go-to for spectacular is wing ding. You're a gem <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Dr. Demento, oh no! It's Bart's other arch-enemy!

  1:51pm sugarplum fairywolf:

Merry Christmas everyone!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Safe travels on your Christmas trip, Amanda. No more Lakeisha Holloways out there, I hope.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Amanda:

@sugarwolf You made it for the best song, coming up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm Parq:

Travel safe, 'Manda, and the merriest of Christmases to you and yours. Don't usually get to hear your show live, and I'm especially glad I could do so today. Mwah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm listener james from westwood:

Enjoy your Christmas, Amanda, and safe travels to and fro!
  1:58pm Jeff g.:

Thanks, Amanda! Any merry merry to you and yours!
