Hey there Hopey! :-)

Ready for spicy holiday fare :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's that LoriHajiTura twist! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It isn't Christmas without some Brass :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Oooo, I love the Tijuana Brass xmas album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

How are you doing, my lovely? Looking forward to a break? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I've been crazy busy at work this whole month, but I am finally done for the year.
  5:04pm Dave In St Albans UK:

After a long day trudging around London with family and friends it's nice to put up my feet and enjoy tonight's LHT! Hello DJGG.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Today is my last day in the office before the break and I am not feeling very inspired to do actual "work" :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Dave!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Everyone kick back and listen to some hot sounds. Work can wait ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I feel like I'm waiting for a really good evening of light entertainment on the TV at Christmas :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

"And coming up next on BBC1 ..." ;-)
Avatar 5:13pm Martinibomb:

hello Georgy Girl and fellow listeners!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hey MB! Grab a hat and join the party! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Morecambe and Wise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

They're showing a vintage episode of Morecambe and Wise and one of The Two Ronnies this Christmas :-)
  5:18pm Dave In St Albans UK:

I admit to liking the test card music when I was a child! A selection of various test card music videos on You Tube to relax to.... :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That's my childhood Christmas TV in a nutshell right there :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Oh wow, I'm going to have to search for that on youtube. I've been watching all sorts of vintage holiday shows this year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I remember feeling very grown-up whenever I was allowed to stay up late enough to see the TV closedown on the BBC :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Hopey - try the BBC player too :-)
Avatar 5:22pm Martinibomb:

late teens I worked at a small local tv station. The test card here is a ring tone and a color bar. Super boring. I always the mornings when I'd power it all up and turn the bars off to a "the broadcast day is about to begin..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

No incidental music? No! That's not on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

If you want to see Santas fighting - come to Camden! ;-)
Avatar 5:27pm Martinibomb:

^Thad make a good reality tv show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Wouldn't it just? lol
It really was the most bizarre sight :-)
Avatar 5:28pm Martinibomb:

film it and upload it to your youtube for $$ ads
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Somehow the gently falling snow made it that much more strange
Avatar 5:29pm Martinibomb:

there's a thing here where people get dressed up as santa and go out. Kinda like the naked bike ride but with Santa Clause and they hit all the bars.. so there's all the people walking around town as Santa - bar fights etc.. it's all funny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think Rick thought I'd gone insane until the chap explained it to us ;-)
Avatar 5:31pm Martinibomb:

I have seen things like easter bunny beating santa clause with someone dressed as Lil Bo Peep watching
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There's a lot of very odd people out there ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oo - my right palm is very itchy. I must be about to win the lottery ;-)
Avatar 5:36pm Martinibomb:

this comedian I watched the other night was saying in china the main phrase they say on their new year means "May you get rich."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I like that! I'll have some of that, thank you! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

A friend in NYC says that whenever it's SantaCon there he always sees santas vomiting in the gutters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Hopey - there's the Christmas card right there ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Ha! Indeed :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've got one of those realistic candles on at the moment - one of the ones with a wick that splutters like a real fire. It is SO LOUD that I keep thinking it's raining outside.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I have a few battery powered fake candles, but none of them make noise. I need to check that out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's the Woodwick ones - I'm currently burning the very unseasonal "Havana Nights" ;-)
Avatar 5:50pm huomenta:

I remember BBC2 had some delightfully feather-light background music combined with teletext after "regular programming" had ended. I just found out they stopped this around 2012... oh no!!! The music was my guilty pleasure no.1 at the time (I'm from Finland, but lived in the UK for nearly five years during the previous decade).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hey there huomenta! :-)
I do miss the closedown
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

We need to ask Jan these questions :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's a very perplexing story all round!
Avatar 5:58pm huomenta:

merry xmas gg! Even though I do not live in the UK anymore, its xmas weather is here unfortunately... I mean 20 years back, -20c temperature even here in southern Finlandwas not uncommon around xmas time. Lotsa snow and truly cold with trees making lovely crackling sounds. Nowadays it is not that different to how I remember xmases in London... rainy, no snow, temps above zero etc. I hate climate change
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I went out today with a light coat, and didn't feel very cold at all. that's alarming :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I wouldn't mind seeing The Kinks in concert this Christmas!
Avatar 6:05pm huomenta:

yes, gg, alarming. on the other hand I remember how oddly beautiful London was around dec.2009/jan.2010 (the last xmas I spent there) when there was snow everywhere in London (apart from the most central areas that is), can not see that happening now... or has it since?
Avatar 6:06pm huomenta:

I would not mind seeing Kinks just once in my life!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Rich in Washington:

Hi DJ GeorgyGirl! Splendid show today! Been busily sprucing up the house for company later this week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It tends to snow here in January/February these days. I think it still snows up north and in Scotland around Christmas tho.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Rich! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Hi Rich!
Avatar 6:08pm Martinibomb:

My brother in law just got back from Japan a few days ago and had photos of the xmas colonel sanders - saw a bunch of the ads yeah they just equate the colonel with xmas because of some ads KFC ran over there in the 70s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - is the food especially festive? Also is $30 for KFC a typical price?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It seems quite expensive
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I say this having not had any KFC since the 80s so my frame of reference is very out of date ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm ParUbi:

Happy Christmas, GG & All
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Rich in Washington:

Hi Hopey!
Hi Martinibomb!
Hi ParUbi!
Hi everyone!

Hi huomenta!
Avatar 6:19pm huomenta:

Hi Rich, merry xmas!
Avatar 6:26pm Martinibomb:

Ungawa Rich!
Avatar 6:28pm Martinibomb:

@GG not exactly sure about kfc price but $20 for the family *bucket* is typical. $30 isn't out of the question for a big pile o chicken
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I guess if you end up feeding a bunch of people that works out pretty good. I forgot about the whole bucket thing :-)
  6:31pm Hopey Appmonkey:

The cold rainy weather is perfect with this wonderful show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's finally stopped raining here but it's still a bit bleurgh, so I'm getting cheered up with this music too :-)
Avatar 6:33pm Martinibomb:

I guess the US is exporting fast food on a planet wide scale and making the entire planet fat. Global obesity rate is climbing. Thanks america!
  6:41pm Hopey Appmonkey:

I absolutely know what you're talking about regarding Xmas stockings!
Avatar 6:42pm Martinibomb:

my parents did the same thing with the stockings also an orange in the bottom? which I always thought was odd
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm wondering if there's a satsuma in the fridge ... ;-)
Hands up everyone who had to play the recorder at school!
Avatar 6:43pm Martinibomb:

yup recorder fer sure but you were on the west coast then so similar story heh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

No satsumas but I did find a pear in the fridge. :-)
@MB - oh the torture continued into the UK ... lol
Avatar 6:45pm Martinibomb:

The fact that nobody goes to recorder concerts should tell you something about it. There's no Brian Eno symphony for recorder. Lol!
Avatar 6:46pm Martinibomb:

The flute/recorder tho is a really old instrument. There's that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Why do they give recorders to small children?? That's like a chorus of Hell!!lol
  6:46pm Hopey Appmonkey:

used to get apples and oranges and nuts and little toys like those metal puzzles. My mom also used to save the toys that came in cereal boxes so I also had lots of gyroscope race cars :)
Avatar 6:47pm Martinibomb:

i think the fingering on the flute is harder for kids?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Hopey - yes! You know the metal puzzles I mean! :-)
Avatar 6:48pm Martinibomb:

now Ijust want to dig up some recorder music for my show on wednesday .. hmmm
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That's just evil. LOL!
Avatar 6:49pm Martinibomb:

christmas with the recorder heh heh pure evil
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Safety Tip: don't breathe a mouthful of pear. Ow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was laughing about the Christmas recorder show and a bit of pear decided to make a break for my windpipe. Well, I'm awake now! lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm standing in for Greg on SHY next - do come and join me for some soothing ambient sounds :-)

Avatar 6:53pm Martinibomb:

That's it eh!? Fun show, thanks DJ GG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You're very welcome :-)
You've got an hour more of me next!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you all for listening :-) And have a fabulous Christmas! :-)
Avatar 6:57pm huomenta:

sometimes recorders do find their place in the world of music; the instrumental break in Japan's version of Ain't that peculiar as a textbook example of good recorder use
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There you go - skilled musicians always come through :-)
Avatar 6:58pm Martinibomb:

@Huomenta A+ I love Japan
Avatar 6:59pm huomenta:

and cheers, thanks, gg &fellow listeners
