Hi all, happy Xmas Chanukah Neither to all (I'm in latter). Will now boom boom to sleep sleep. Because someone gave me a present of a head cold. I wish I could say "I got a rock" instead.

This guy is a bit too excited about giving the Beatles to his lady friend for Christmas.

Nice! This takes me back to better days.
Thank you, Todd.

This really is The Beatles for Xmas if you want it : somethingaboutthebeatles.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

As much as I like hearing "Father Christmas" all December, it's nice to hear a different Kinks tune here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Weird hearing that intro without a werewolf noise over it…
  4:47pm trouble:

hey toddddddddddd o phonic! loving the sounds! do you have in the bleak midwinter? the pipettes do a version. .. feliz navidad y prospero ano nuevo! x
Avatar 4:50pm JakeGould:

“Rosy Won't You Please Come Home” is just such a beautiful song. Thanks for playing that!
  4:57pm Mike Flynn:

I hope there might be some room in the set for Edmunds "Run Run Rudolph"! Never Christmas without Dave's version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- goes w/ Tradewinds' 'New York's a Lonely Town' ( - when yer the only surferboy around) - which if you've been @ all 'bicoastal' ya gotta love...
  5:00pm Mike Flynn:

Also love Edmunds two versions, New York and London!

Wow... This sounds so much like Chuck.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

PhilSpector's Xmas album balances everything just right - Tradition & Modernism - Performance & Production...A little effort to get the Ronnie / Darlene Love credits just right (they sound alike). A little played out for me just now - but not your problem...

...holysmokes: Wigkey says Spector Xmas album released November 22, 1963 - right there w/ JFK assassination & 'With the Beatles' - & 'Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys has cited this album as his favorite of all time.'
...The more I hear 1960s BGs - the more I esteem them.
  5:30pm Old Dave:

@Rabbit I dunno. The Tengo are better explainers of secular holiday mayhem, now that some of us
recognize the difference between buying crap like maniacs and sitting down to reflect on what to do with
our lives on December 24 2016.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Greg from ZONE 5:

There are many Christmas songs—but also, there is only this one.
  5:35pm Mike Flynn:

I haven't heard this Pogues song for a while. Great song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...part of the subtextual melancholy of Xmas is the End of Year thing...
The Dalai Lama is quoted as saying People are made to be Loved, & things to be Used - but People are getting used, & Things loved. FMU exists (as has Norton) because *somebody* understands that the Music has to come before the Profit - or the thing will collapse into nothing...
  5:43pm wilbur twinhorse:

Thanks for not answering the phone...Merry Christmas anyway. Thanks for playing that Pogues's song. God Bless Shane McGowan and all us lesser alcoholics!
  5:46pm Slaboch:

That Poets track was fantastic!!!!
Avatar 5:47pm geezerette:

@RevRab @5:39 Cheers to that!
  5:48pm Jeff from Rahway:
