love ya Duane! merry christmas and happy new year
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm alanr:

Dear Mr. DJ: I request permission to NOT listen to your show today. Not being a Christian, this was always an alienating time for me, and the music of this season is, shall I say, somewhat repulsive emotionally for me. But I speak only for myself. So, I look forward to the future gems of broadcast that you do.....thank you, Duane. You're doing a great service, but today it is for others....Now, I need to find a Chinese restaurant in order to fulfill my cultural obligations!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm patrick321:

Happy Christmas, Duane. I'm enjoying this very much.

Avatar 12:17pm northguineahills:

@adampsyche: So, I guess you're south of O'Higgins Land (Tierre de O'Higgins), as most of that peninsula is north of the Antarctic Circle...
Avatar 12:19pm northguineahills:

I'm as atheist as it comes. and hate trad xmas music (coming from fundie family), but Duane does this shit correct, as per usual.... Thanks again, Duane!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm adampsyche:

@northguine ahills you are correct, at Anvers Island near Potter Station. We moved I guess since this morning.

Avatar 12:30pm northguineahills:

@Jake: To answer your question from the other day, I'm still working at UPS, and even though I'm 20 years older then most employees, I have the best metrics (I'm a former athlete, both soccer and middle distance running, a decade ago), So, they want me full time and want to fast track me to management. However, I'm so exhausted after every shift, I can't apply to GIS jobs, or write art, music, or poetry. So, I'll see....

@northguine ahills we're at 64°33′S 63°35′W. Whatever I'm just happy for a taste of Wednesday tho it's 2 pm instead of noon :)

I just had this vision that the guy in 'Driving Home for Christmas' actually died on the highway 30 years ago but hasn't accepted it so now he's a ghost, endlessly driving, and singing, and now I'm sad

first time hearing accordion in a reggae tune
Avatar 1:30pm northguineahills:

@Jshatan: I highly recommend to blindly buy anything from that label. I got a Georgian, the country, (Orthodox Church) rec from Soul Jazz of liturgical chorales from monks, and it also blew me away...
