Bah, humbug. I'm going to sleep and I don't care if the stockings are hung or not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

Disco Christmas! This is wonderful!
Avatar 6:17pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

This song is very good, although it overstays its welcome slightly!! It clocks in about 6 minutes?
Avatar 6:17pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

Most everything i play caps off at 2.5 minutes.
Avatar 6:18pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

WR, it sounds like you need some bah-humbuger helper.
Avatar 6:19pm solo mon:

I thought they said Crisco Christmas at first!

Disco never ends
Avatar 6:20pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

slip'n'slide xmas party! (in pre-covid of course)
Avatar 6:21pm solo mon:

These pumpkin stickers suddenly seem very out of date ,no?
Avatar 6:21pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

haha, apt point, they're like the clearance section of walgreens at this rate.
Avatar 6:22pm solo mon:

Gonna make some pumpkin badge pie outta these.
Avatar 6:23pm Domenic:

Interesting selections... I do Love Dolly...
Avatar 6:24pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

we had put our pumpkins outside after thanksgiving, and they were promptly taken. but one has suddenly resurfaced today. left on the sidewalk, gutted and decapitated. i feel kind of sad about it?
Avatar 6:25pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

yes, i went a little off the rails with this one, domenic. next week, i'm planning on doing a loungier/more exotica, back-to-usual programing christmas playlist. i just couldn't resist!
Avatar 6:25pm solo mon:

Well the orange looks great against this lavender background so that makes me happy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm ARB:

The background is periwinkle
Avatar 6:26pm solo mon:

The background is the color all the sets in Rudolph the red nosed reindeer :-)
Avatar 6:26pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

yes, good point, solo! how is your break going?
Avatar 6:26pm Domenic:

Hi! Oh don't apologize please! "off the rails" is good!
Avatar 6:27pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

hey, arb!

Avatar 6:28pm Domenic:

Yes hello Arb! That Jewish thang yesterday. whoof!!;)

This "Feliz Navidad " was clever at the start!
Avatar 6:36pm solo mon:

Satans Pilgrims- my friend Scott in that band!
Avatar 6:37pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

yess, that 96 tears riff! satan's pilgrims are so great! saw them a couple years ago at Asbury Surf Music Festival (aka Hi-Tide Holiday). i was really impressed.
Avatar 6:37pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

ohh, right, they are from Portland, right?
Avatar 6:37pm solo mon:

They are great! Yeah from Portland.
Avatar 6:50pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

these elves sound vastly underpaid while they're out here gettin' santa's bag.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Santa Fodder:

Hi Shangri-La and fellow friends!
Avatar 6:55pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

finally, santa has made his appearance!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Santa Fodder:

Sorry, I fell asleep on the couch again checking my list twice, everybody here has been real nice.
Avatar 6:57pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

thank you, santa. we appreciate everything you do!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

I think I only have a total of two christmas records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Santa Fodder:

I have just one now... The Sy Mann Switched on Santa with Perrey on the cover. Used to have a cubby full years back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Santa Fodder:

All I want for Christmas is a Zoom call with Sheena DJs this weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

Oh yeah.
Avatar 7:04pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

rich, i'm sort of surprised you don't have more. i'm not generally into xmas music by nature. but i've got some select things - try to keep the collection in control.
Avatar 7:08pm Scott67:

G'day Shangri-la and Lounge Lizards.
Avatar 7:09pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

hey, scott!
Avatar 7:10pm zivilars:

first time I'm able to listen to this show ... what a great setlist so far, thanks DJ Shangri-La!
Avatar 7:11pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

thanks, zivilars! <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

I had to take out a restraining order against Suzy Snowflake. All that tap tap tappin' at my window in the middle of the night.
Avatar 7:13pm zivilars:

1 hour 12 minutes into our second hard Corona lockdown here in Germany ... :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

Oh boy. Sorry zivilars!
Avatar 7:13pm zivilars:

lot of time at home again to listen to Sheena's
Avatar 7:13pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

i think the next song will be a good palate cleanser, rich!
Avatar 7:14pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

ugh yes, sorry, zivilars! can't wait for this to eventually pass...
Avatar 7:15pm zivilars:

2021 can only get better - will still take a fews months though, I guess ...
Avatar 7:15pm Scott67:

zivilars, hang in there mate. We went hard in Victoria, Australia. And we've had zero cases ever since.
Avatar 7:15pm zivilars:

@Scott: Zero cases? That's impressive indeed!
Avatar 7:16pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

gawsh. so depressing to consider our situation here in the US when other places were doing it right from the start.
Avatar 7:17pm Scott67:

@Z, well worth the community effort.
Avatar 7:18pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

"community effort" is not something we specialize in within the US, sadly.
Avatar 7:19pm Scott67:

So often Freedoms just another word for being a Fuckwit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

I am fortunate to live in a state whose Governor gets it but also unfortunate to live in a relatively rural part of it where people are openly defying covid measures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

FREEDUMB!
Avatar 7:20pm Scott67:

Health terrorism.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

I adore The Waitresses.
Avatar 7:24pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

yes, this song crosses holiday-music boundaries. it's good everyday.
Avatar 7:25pm zivilars:

It's always nice to be reminded how many real cool Christmas songs exist when you only hear the terrible three same songs everywhere else this time of the year
Avatar 7:26pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

lol, soo true! i haven't minded not hearing it in the local shopping mall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

I want to be in a crowded shopping mall a few days before xmas and have some prankster suddenly play The Residents Santa Dog over the soundsystem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Santa Fodder:

If I was a mall santa, I'd be happy to hijack the system.
Avatar 7:30pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

this reminds me to watch Bad Santa this year. it's a terrible movie, but i love it. the sequel, not so much.
Avatar 7:31pm zivilars:

ha, didn't know this Boots christmas version ... nice one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Santa Fodder:

The 1st Bad Santa cracks me up. Makes for great couchwatchin' over the holidays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

Aw... I haven't seen Rudolph in decades.
Avatar 7:36pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

i'm really into the rankin-bass movies, muppets, casper, charlie brown...
Avatar 7:36pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

i try to watch each year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

I wish there were a PA system here at work. Just some lousy IP phones and one crappy speaker pointing to the shipping department.
Avatar 7:37pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

ah, i bet the shipping guys would love to hear this song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

but in all actuality there being no PA system is almost entirely my fault because of years of abuse and pranks using it.
Avatar 7:38pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

wow rich, you're the office rulebreaker?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

I don't break rules. I make them make new ones.
Avatar 7:40pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

perfect yearbook quote.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Fodder Elf:

I broke too many rules and was demoted to Elf status. Shangri-La is the new Santa in town now. Rich, I see you are a fellow-Elf on the line too!
Avatar 7:46pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

Sheriff Santa at your service.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Fodder Elf:

Rich and I just assembled a dozen Tiki bars on the line for Sheena Staff. Going to make another bamboo run top of the hour. Rich, we need more swizzle sticks!
Avatar 7:48pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

I told Rich last week we were out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

On it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

The men's room loo is clogged again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Fodder Elf:

Now if all Christmas songs were like Dolly's song... I'd have that shelf of Christmas records.
Avatar 7:49pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

More dates on each cheese tray asap!
Avatar 7:50pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

i know. the sweetest, sincerest xmas song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Fodder Elf:

Where is Solo, our catering elf. I see his truck in the parking lot.
Avatar 7:51pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

he's probably smoking weed in the back, again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

someone sucked all the nitrous out of the Reddi Whip cans! It was those dishwasher kids!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Fodder Elf:

We just served the Holiday Cake set in Aspic with Shrimp. It's next to the Eggnog bowl on the main table for guests.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Fodder Elf:

Just going to sit here and finish my fruitcake, might take a while, pretty dry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

Uh.. probably not a good time to let you know that I bought the shrimp from Dollar General and I think it was expired weeks ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Fodder Elf:

It's okay, I've used the Dollarama Canned Shrimp before.
Avatar 7:56pm zivilars:

That was a great show, DJ Shangri-La – a shame that your show normally is too late for my time zone, but I'll catch up in the archives. Thanks a lot! Hope to see some of you guys somewhere on the boards tomorrow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Fodder Elf:

Thanks Shangri-La for the holiday cheer. Happy to catch the 2nd hour this eve!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

the secret is to turn off the lights and see if the shrimp glows in the dark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Rich in Lavender Sansabelt Slacks:

Thanks, DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Fodder Elf:

It's Glowing! Aaaaaaaaaaah!
Avatar 7:57pm DJ Shangri-Fa-La-La-La-La:

Speaking of William Shatner & Henry Rollins Jingle Bells - Punk Rock Version. This song from that album a host on a NPR station in Fort Wayne named Rob Martinez, host of The Movie Music Spotlight & The Nights Before Christmas recommended to me. "Shatner Claus" hehe lol.
  12:08am DJUK (DJ Unikitty):

And yeah, The Trashman! I remember hearing Surfin' Bird on Family Guy. yup there is a episode about that. "I Dream of Jesus" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSlB4eznXoA) A Surprise to me is THE TRASHMAN MADE A CHRISTMAS SONG? :O
