As you wish, Mr. DeeJay.

  Fri. 12/24/10 9:35am Drummer Some:

You can the boy outta the Alleghenys, but you can't take the Alleghenys outta the boy.
  Fri. 12/24/10 9:43am still b/p:

Bodies lyin' everywhere! Now, that's Chrizmus!
  Fri. 12/24/10 9:46am Drummer Some:

  Fri. 12/24/10 10:08am Drummer Some:

For those hankerin' for Xmas music, check out my show from this past Tuesday:
  Fri. 12/24/10 10:32am trs:

The earlier and earlier (i.e. November, October) start to all things Christmas burns me out sooner, too.
  Fri. 12/24/10 10:35am Drummer Some:

Consider the next hour and a half an Xmas-free zone.
  Fri. 12/24/10 10:35am lisa from brooklyn:

  Fri. 12/24/10 10:37am Drummer Some:

  Fri. 12/24/10 10:45am trs:

  Fri. 12/24/10 11:03am Vince V G:

  Fri. 12/24/10 11:04am Drummer Some:

I misspoke earlier. Bandolero are from Puerto Rico, not Mexico. (Though they ARE pretending to be Mexicans on the record cover.) Will you ever forgive me?
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:12am Bing:

"Mexicali Pose...stop trying..."
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:12am Alex in Illinois:

Not at work today. This year 12/24 is given as a holiday. Just got back in from walking the dog in time for the last hour of the show.
Io Saturnalia everyone!
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:14am Drummer Some:

"Saturnalia became one of the most popular Roman festivals. It was marked by drunken orgies, tomfoolery and reversal of social roles, in which slaves and masters ostensibly switched places, much like the Lord of Misrule in later Christian celebrations."
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:15am lewis:

ah the miracle of modern technology... Doug can (hopefully) do his show on the road next week and I can listen to it on the road this week (it is definitely a white christmas in the twin cities)
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:18am Brian in UK:

@Paul S if you are listening. Picked up the Beagle pup last Sat but it took 4 1/2 hours to get home 'cause of the snow & numb nuts drivers.
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:19am Drummer Some:

Fingers crossed, Lewis.
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:20am Drummer Some:

Brian, it warms my cockles to know that you folks in the UK use the phrase "numb nuts" too.
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:22am Brian in UK:

Well thankee kindly Old Mose (Doug) knows.
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:28am jill:

"warms my cockles" - is that a shared phrase, too?
cockles, that's funny
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:33am Mose:

Don't want no money, Ethan. No money, Marty.
Just a roof over old Mose's head. And a rocking chair by the fire. My own rocking chair by the fire, Marty.
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:36am Drummer Some:

Can you answer Jill. My cockles are chillin'.
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:36am annie:

"Under one popular theory, the phrase "cockles of your heart" is derived from the Latin description for the heart's chambers, cochleae cordis. It is believed that the word 'cockles' is a corrupted version of cochleae, most likely entering the popular vernacular as a form of slang. The prevailing medical opinion of that day and time was that the ventricles of the human heart resembled the concentric shells of small mollusks or snails, also known as cochleae or cockles. This theory concerning the origin of "cockles of your heart" does address the connection between the physical and emotional role of the heart, but the shell analogy appears to be more accurate with the structure of the human ear. The Latin cochlea is still used to describe the ear, not the cardium, or heart."
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:37am annie:

  Fri. 12/24/10 11:38am Drummer Some:

Annie to the rescue!
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:39am annie:

Have I told you all lately how much I love you? This much: [..........................................................] Thank you so much for all the enthusiastic support and participation with this crazy wonderful radio/stream project. I could not do it without you. All good things for the holidays and beyond...
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:54am Brian in UK:

@annie totally agree! As a piece of graffiti I once read went 'I'm not antisemantic some of my best friends are words'
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:56am Brian in UK:

After today, I guess there will be no end of year reviews next week eh DS?
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:57am still b/p:

This set is what I'd like to have during the road-tripping later today -- little swerve to the beat over here, over here, over here, now...
Great show, Doug.
Good holiday and Happy New Year to all.
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:57am Brian in UK:

@Mose Glad you remembered the script after all these years.
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:57am monica:

  Fri. 12/24/10 11:58am Drummer Some:

If I can do a show next week, not sure I'll be able to pull together a Best Of program. Every week is my Best Of!
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:59am Brian in UK:

That was what I kinda meant.
  Fri. 12/24/10 11:59am Drummer Some:
