Hey, joe. Just came back from Monkees. Hope you have Headquarters handy.
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 12:10am Joe McG:

Hey, Bridget! This isn't your sock in the studio, is it? Hey, KP! I wasn't planning on Monkeemania, but I'll think on it.
  Sun. 12/2/12 12:11am sweet cheri:

  Sun. 12/2/12 12:13am sweet cheri:

Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 12:13am Joe McG:

Oh, yes, the holidays are delightful!
  Sun. 12/2/12 12:19am sweet cheri:

you got that right joe,, btw since it's december have you got any holiday tunes this morning?
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 12:21am Joe McG:

Maybe I'll play "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer."
  Sun. 12/2/12 12:23am KP:

That's ok, got enough for quite a while, or tomorrow night. Whichever comes first.
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 12:24am Joe McG:

@KP: How is the Nes holding up? I'm waiting for the First National Band reunion.
  Sun. 12/2/12 12:25am Scott W:

Hi Joe! Happy National Day (Laos & UAE), don't you just love holidays??
  Sun. 12/2/12 12:25am KP:

I've found secret to holidays is to get out of town. No family is as annoying as your own.
  Sun. 12/2/12 12:25am sweet cheri:

joe what's your favorite holiday tune? i just love "silent night",,
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 12:26am Joe McG:

I just LOVE the holidays, Scott W., especially the Laotian ones!
  Sun. 12/2/12 12:28am KP:

Nes was fantastic. Girl that I knew somewhere was easy and emotionsl highlight. But dolenz was fantastic, even tork was up to it.
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 12:28am Joe McG:

@sc: I think my favorite holiday tune is "America the Beautiful."
  Sun. 12/2/12 12:29am Scott W:

@KP: Sounds like Sensational Alex Harvey band outtake.
  Sun. 12/2/12 12:53am Bridget:

Sometimes we listen to Charles Mingus at work. It is a nice mellow change from the garbage that usually gets played. Hooray for my musicnaziness
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:03am jeff-m:

i'd like to vote for that B side of Journey to the...
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:03am Destroit:

Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 1:06am Joe McG:

Hey, Jeff, I may do it! We'll see. I'm feeling perverse. Hey, Destroit!
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:07am Holly in NC:

Hi Joe! Loving this 'new' Toy Love, been listening to it a lot.
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:08am Destroit:

Do it Joe.
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:08am Frances:

This live Only Ones track is a real treat.digging thw whole set
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:09am Matt from Springfield:

Like a Rolling Stones for the 70s. Hi Joe! Hi everyone!

Hope I didn't miss the Laotian cut?!!
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 1:09am Joe McG:

Destroit, I don't need too much encouragement! @Frances: Thanks!
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 1:11am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt: maybe lotion instead. Hey Holly!
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:12am Matt from Springfield:

I want to hear more hard rock bands from Pipestone! Minnesota!
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 1:13am Joe McG:

The Pipestone Sound.
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:19am Matt from Springfield:

Hmm, here's a Who song I haven't heard before, thanks.
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 1:21am Joe McG:

@Matt: Check out "The Who Sell Out," I think you'll like that one!
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:25am Julie:

oooh I like this
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:25am Matt from Springfield:

I like what I've heard from "The Who Sell Out", but never listened to that beginning-to-end. Something I should do!

Also a nice French song to bring in December, as it's about "neige" (snow).
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:26am Matt from Springfield:

Another good French folk one! Nice to hear Pierre Seguer.
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:28am Frances:

Hey Matt, my fellow Virginian!
I could listen to French music all night. Was lucky to see some (Arch Woodman , and My Lazy Jazz) while in Paris last May.
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:31am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Frances!
Speakly of which, we're putting together a northern VA Meetup next week, but I don't suppose you'll be in the area then?
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:33am Matt from Springfield:

Proceed to file in single order, Joe!!
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:34am Frances:

My insomnia will pay off if there's more Only Ones played!
@Matt,sorry ,not sure when I'll next be in NoVa.my planned traintrip was cancelled due to Sandy
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

The goal is try to wrangle the 5 or so regular NoVA commenters together, and then next month set up a huger event for the whole DC area listening community, prob on U St. in DC.
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 1:40am Joe McG:

@Frances: I won't guarowntee, but I may. @Matt: Good organizing!
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:42am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: After we have finishing organizing everyone on the planet, our next goal will be...organizing closets!
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:44am Frances:

@JoeMcG Will keep enjoying whatever you play! @Matt, keep me posted via email or via Flickrmail,who knows, maybe I could make the bigger event(will lurk in corner)
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 1:44am Joe McG:

Shucks, Frances, that's so nice.
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:47am Matt from Springfield:

@Frances: Once we get a Jan event I'll let you know!
@Joe: I'm thinking B-side. "Power To The People"?
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:50am Frances:

Should I admit that I carried this book w/me in 7th grade as a security blanket? http://www.amazon.com/John-Lennon-Personal-Biography-Seventies/dp/0394177541
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 1:53am Joe McG:

@Matt: Yep, b-side of "Imagine." @Frances: I used to keep a file of Lennon death clippings.
  Sun. 12/2/12 1:57am Matt from Springfield:

Oh wow, didn't know that was the "Imagine" B-side!
Go, Brother Percy Sledge! Excellent choice!
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:00am Frances:

@JoeMcG lucky for me,7th grade preceded the shooting. That happened when I was in highschool & I punched a guy in the stomach that day when he made a joke of it/made my friend cry. Shocking that a female would punch a guy back then ;)
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:04am Matt from Springfield:

@Frances: You have Punk in your veins! ;)
Defend the righteous, punish the assholes!
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:06am Julie:

I really liked that movie!
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:12am Julie:

looks like he kept the chops http://www.ourherald.com/news/2012-11-22/Obituaries/George_N_Black.html
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:15am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Julie! Yep, that's very "freeform" facial hair!
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 2:15am Joe McG:

Thanks, Julie!
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:30am KP:

Joe, the song is "Who Says There Ain't No Santa Claus." It was jokey '50s style RB. I've only heard it once, on WFMU. The other quote is the punchline.
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:32am Matt from Springfield:

Another Jeanie country singer! There's never too many, if they're good!
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 2:36am Joe McG:

@Matt: You so right.
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:39am Matt from Springfield:

You likewise so right, to be playing Waylon singing Neil Diamond!
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 2:40am Joe McG:

If only I had some Neil Diamond singing Waylon!
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:42am Frances:

Waylon might just be my final lullabye this morning as I'm fading towards slumberland...will listen as I drift off. Thank you for a great set,night all !
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:43am KP:

Speaking of Neil Diamond, the Monkees did an awesome I'm A Believer tonight.
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 2:43am Joe McG:

Goodnight, Frances, thanks for dropping by!
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:46am KP:

Here it is. From "Bummed Out Christmas," keep it in mind.
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:48am Matt from Springfield:

Very good for newer Neil D!

Night, Frances!
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 2:51am Joe McG:

Unfortunately, I'm almost out of time, so I can't play this for an hour.
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:51am jeff-m:

jesus, getting all thoughtful and motivated by Neil Diamond over here :D
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:52am KP:

That's not a typo!

jeff-m, may god bless you!
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:53am Frances:

So glad to be awake enough for Hell Yeah. Thx for this, JoeMcG
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:53am jeff-m:

ha, roger that!

  Sun. 12/2/12 2:54am KP:

im going to roll as well. Congratulations Joe on your part in an inspirational time for the station, and everyone else involved. Or as Neil Diamond might say, Hell Yeah.
Avatar Sun. 12/2/12 2:54am Joe McG:

Thanks, everyone. It will be completely different next week. Enjoy your week!
  Sun. 12/2/12 2:56am Matt from Springfield:

Hells yeah you did!

Wonderful Saturday night tunes, thanks Joe! Have a good night, everyone!
  Sun. 12/2/12 4:33pm G:

Catching up on archive. I'm not sure if you know (you didn't mention it in the first mic break), but Wakeman has actually been in South America in the last two weeks doing Journey shows, tied in to the new-and-improved re-release of Journey with tons of notes (132 pages, if I am remembering right) -- see Wakeman's site about all that --

http://www.rwcc.com/gorr.asp (Nov 2012 "grumpy old rick rant")

Underappreciated is the late-90s "Return to the Centre of the Earth", with voiceover from Patrick Stewart and singing from Justin Hayward, Ozzy O., et al...
  Mon. 12/3/12 2:05pm Stephen:

Thank you for remembering George!
