Listener comments!

  12:11am Harry:

Yay, cool Christmas tunes! Hi Therese, Are you in the holiday spirit?
  12:14am Therese:

Hi Harry! I'm trying!
  12:22am Harry:

Would snow help?
  12:23am coalhard:

MY BULBS ARE ON---ބބބބބބބބބބ
  12:32am Roger:

  12:40am coalhard:

wonder why lucy always gets charlie brown a football for christmas?
  12:43am Harry:

Ah, yes, what is Lucy's subconscious mission?
  12:45am Roger:

Lucy was simply an awful, awful person with a cursory knowledge of psychiatry.
  12:45am Harry:

I am literally rockin around the Christmas tree with this set !
  12:46am Therese:

She only charged 5 cents a session, what more could you expect?
  12:48am Harry:

Yes, but 5 cents in 1965 was the equivalent of 400 dollars today.
  12:49am Therese:

Is that how the math works out?
  12:50am Roger:

She couldn't even afford a couch. Awful.
  12:50am Harry:

I think that's why I'm broke after Christmas shopping. Couldn't be my budgeting skills
  12:51am coalhard:

Therese is like a free lucy--will pull a good song right from under you
  12:55am Harry:

The Cowsills ! Now that's eclectic :)
  1:01am Roger:

Wikipedia, on Lucy Van Pelt: "She is often referred to as the world's greatest fuss-budget."
  1:06am Harry:

Moved from NJ! Their loss
  1:12am coalhard:

i moved from camden nj once--turned to drink--then one night i heard a dolly parton song
  1:13am Harry:

  1:15am coalhard:

no--- stupid map was upside down
  1:17am Harry:

maybe you'll get a GPS for Christmas
  1:29am Harry:

I'm going to print out this playlist. It will become my Christmas list. If I get a fraction of these tunes, it will totally FunkGroovisize my collection.
  1:32am coalhard:

hope santa deletes all your cookies while he is at it
  1:33am Harry:

my secret cookies too?
  1:35am Roger:

Santa only has a bite or two of cookies, to show that he was there.
  1:35am coalhard:

he doesn't wear gloves for nothing
  1:37am Harry:

then where does that plate of cookies go??
  1:40am Roger:

It stays where it was. Same with the glass of milk. Duh.
  1:40am coalhard:

my wife asked me one day --"does this plate of cookies make my butt look bigger"
  1:43am Harry:

lol,CH.....but, my cookies. I must have Christmas Rats (they must be cute, though)
  1:51am coalhard:

  2:07am coalhard:

  2:19am coalhard:

  2:23am Nat the Cake:

  2:24am Roger:

It all comes back to Chuck Brown
  2:27am coalhard:
