Listener comments!

  7:11pm Sean Daily:

First comment! Woo hoo!
  7:13pm The Log Lady:

I'm gonna call you Uncle Joe Mistletoe from now on!
  7:21pm Joe:

For just this show, that's okay, but don't spread it around!
  7:29pm Tulkinghorn:

Uncle Mistletoe!

Sinister, or what?
  7:31pm Sean Daily:

You know, I could say all kinds of crude things about Santa being stuck in Little Rita Faye's chimney. But I won't.
  7:32pm John:

Is there a podcast of this show that I can download...great tunes man!
  7:33pm The Log Lady:

Your restraint is admirable, Sean.
  7:35pm Tulkinghorn:

I'm informed that Uncle Mistletoe was 'married' to an Aunt Holly.

Don't believe it, myself.
  7:39pm Joe:

  7:03pm Olga:

Wow, I took "I fell out of a Christmas tree" a little too literally. As in she fell out of the tree and onto her head... which is why her daddy won't hit her. She's kinda special...
  8:37pm Vicki:

My Mom was born on Christmas day 1952 and Little Rita Fayes song was my mom's song! My mom had a VERY old 45 with that song on it but these days who has a record player?!?!? Just didn't feel like Christmas without hearing that song! I love it! "When my birthday rolls around they close up all the stores in town and have a holiday for me!"
