Thanks Pauly!
Avatar 8:16pm Joe B:

thanks for the shoutout on a Super Tuesday!
Avatar 8:18pm Joe B:

I'll never forget that Orangu-tones show during a snowstorm at uncle joe's
Avatar 8:19pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

You earned it Joe! Cheryl was just reminiscing about driving home with Kevin & Lauren that night. I couldn't make the scene, had to work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Gaylord Fields:

@Joe B: Just thinking of that glorious night! They were surprised anyone showed, but those who did had a frat-rockin' good time!!!
Avatar 8:20pm Joe B:

yeah I ditched my car there and had to go back the next day to dig it out!
Avatar 8:21pm Joe B:

TOPT, who did they play with at Asbury Lanes on that trip?
  8:21pm Matt Clarke:

This is the cherry on top of Super Tuesday, Todd.
and also trader joes has no creatures stirring.
  8:22pm Matt Clarke:

All I want for Christmas are some Ringo Bells!
  8:23pm Richard Whig:

I speak for all of us...GRRRROOOAAAAANNNNNN!!!!
Avatar 8:23pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Joe B: I can't remember...probably someone inappropriate if I had to guess!
Avatar 8:23pm Hackensack Slim:

Todd, That's the best joke I've heard this Christmas Season!
Avatar 8:24pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Gaylord Fields:

I'd like to think Russell would be more respectful of two consenting adults.
Avatar 8:29pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Gaylord Fields: You'd like to think...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm WR:

Huey Smith! Thank you!
  8:33pm Richard Whig:

Gaylord, that's your problem... you like to think!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Gaylord Fields:

@Richard: Bane of my existence.
Avatar 8:35pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Thinking should be kept to a minimum during Stupor Tuesday!
  8:39pm Richard Whig:

wise and sage advice Sir Todd
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Gaylord Fields:

i.e., not practicing what you preach.
  8:40pm Richard Whig:

that Jim Backus record was stoopid good!
Avatar 8:41pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Chop Scott's other favorite! The man has good taste, that's why he listens to Yesterday's Numbers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Chop Scott:

Now I am feeling the spirit--thanks Todd!
  8:41pm MOM WHIG:

Yes, Mr Magoo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Mike Sin:

"When tryin' to untangle the Jingle from the Jangle" -- Nice one, Penguins!
Avatar 8:52pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Great show tonight Mike even if Matt was working from a script he never showed you!
Avatar 8:56pm Joe B:

so far only two songs overlapping that I will be playing here on Christmas Day, and one will be airing at the correct speed!
Avatar 8:58pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Will it be faster or slower than the version I played tonight?
Avatar 9:01pm Joe B:

I'm still not sure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm WR:

Todd @8:52, LOL. Yes, it was fun to listen to, I think Mike may be a new Bud Abbott.
Avatar 9:02pm Joe B:

TOPT, I thought/hoped that story was going to be that Jerry and/or the Landslides were at the playboy mansion
Avatar 9:04pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Joe B: Since you and Jerry are such great pals maybe you should ask him about that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm swivs:

Trying to work but I'm laughing too hard
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm swivs:

*first time hearing Poor Mister Santa
Avatar 9:11pm Joe B:

ha I will! uh oh orchids makes it 3!
  9:12pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

I was hoping you’d play “Mr. Scrooge”!
Avatar 9:13pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Dungaroos Kipawah: I'm sure your hope represents thousands of other listeners.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Gaylord Fields:

@Joe B: Look at it this way — when you play them, that will be the final time any of us hear these songs for about a year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Chop Scott:

TOPT making our wishes come true!
  9:17pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

I contain—and represent—multitudes
Avatar 9:17pm Joe B:

  9:19pm MOM WHIG:

Can't go wrong with Darlene Love--Excellent choice
Avatar 9:21pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Thanks Mom Whig!
Avatar 9:21pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Speaking of Christmas...I will be doing the morning show on 91.1 Christmas morning.
  9:28pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

Goldner, Leiber & Stoller
  9:28pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

L&S sold their share of Red Bird to Goldner for $1.
  9:30pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

I think other ppl were in on that Red Bird deal, but their names ummmm don’t appear on any of the transactions
Avatar 9:30pm Joe B:

I just pictured Don Ameche in trading places saying 'one dollar!'
  9:31pm Richard Whig:

Todd, those of us on the west coast can stay up WAY late drinking on Xmas Eve to catch you on the Friday morning show!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Gaylord Fields:

George Goldner had a bad gambling habit, and would start labels only to lose them to Morris Levy.
Avatar 9:31pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Richard Whig: I like a man with a plan!
Avatar 9:32pm Joe B:

wow, now that sounds like a Merry Whigmas!
  9:34pm Richard Whig:

if Santa's lucky, he will stop by during that timeframe me frame and we can have a few blasts and cut a rug.... appropriately distanced and in the yarde of course
  9:36pm Richard Whig:

I find it easier to get unstuck from the chimney if I just act naturally.
  9:38pm MOM WHIG:

Been waiting for the Beach Boys

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Gaylord Fields:

The second-greatest Christmas single ever!
  9:56pm Richard Whig:

  9:56pm Richard Whig:

Avatar 9:57pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Gaylord Fields: Imagine if The Chipmunks & Canned Heat had tackled "Ringo Bells"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Gaylord Fields:

@Todd-o-phonic Todd: That would involve me thinking again, but it's worth it!
  9:58pm MOM WHIG:

Way to end the show
