Dropping from 65 to 35 here in one day... so you are absolutely right

here we go
Avatar 6:02pm cometothesunshine:

It was sobering to realize that this might be my last winter show - so I am with Page & Simon & you - ENJOY!
Avatar 6:03pm mce1965:

Some fine keyboard work from Benny on this one
Avatar 6:03pm dale:

listening on my squeezebox and i sounds fantastic! looking forward to the cary grant 'here's to you'
Avatar 6:05pm cometothesunshine:

thanks, dale!
Avatar 6:05pm mce1965:

Smooth transition there
Avatar 6:06pm cometothesunshine:

They met on a ski slope
Avatar 6:07pm cometothesunshine:

I worked very hard on this Volume 3. The winter shows are my favorites, so I set a high bar.
  6:08pm Natalie:

Greetings, Sunshine people!
Avatar 6:08pm mce1965:

So far, so fine
Avatar 6:09pm cometothesunshine:

welcome, Natalie
Avatar 6:09pm cometothesunshine:

thanks for joining us on this festive Monday.
  6:09pm Natalie:

Thank you! It took me a few minutes to figure out the "chat"...
  6:10pm Natalie:

I am glad I could finally make it
Avatar 6:10pm dale:

the warmth is really burning through the snow cover. how will santa land if it's all melted?
Avatar 6:11pm cometothesunshine:

he has another 90 mins to figure that out!
Avatar 6:12pm cometothesunshine:

Boys will be Boys

The D-partment store...
Avatar 6:13pm mce1965:

What is this strange separation between the channels I have detected on a couple of songs?
Avatar 6:13pm dale:

he must have little training wheels on the skis.
Avatar 6:14pm cometothesunshine:

I bought you all STEREO for Christmas
Avatar 6:14pm mce1965:

Oh my
Avatar 6:14pm Natalie:

I feel so spoiled
Avatar 6:15pm Natalie:

It's cold here?
Avatar 6:15pm cometothesunshine:

I couldn't afford MONO this year, sorry...
Avatar 6:15pm dale:

is the allen brothers album worth an entire listen?
Avatar 6:16pm cometothesunshine:

I like it, Dale. There are good non-LP 45's
Avatar 6:16pm Natalie:

I will forgive you. Consider it my Christmas gift to you ;)
Avatar 6:17pm mce1965:

Will you play more from the Crapitol label later?
Avatar 6:18pm cometothesunshine:

One more Craptastic track is on our playlist for today.
Avatar 6:19pm dale:

i find it so fitting that judy garland's husband 'discovered' him, although he definitely had a career already.
Avatar 6:19pm Natalie:

Is that a New Jersey label?
Avatar 6:20pm mce1965:

I like her demo of this... it's not quite as strident as the Claudine version
Avatar 6:21pm cometothesunshine:

All of Margo's demos are quite good.
Avatar 6:21pm dale:

have you ever played any jordan christopher? i have his 'the knack and how to get it' album and it's actually pretty good.
Avatar 6:22pm cometothesunshine:

Though I do enjoy Claudine singing "Think Of Wayne."
Avatar 6:23pm cometothesunshine:

I always get my Christopher Robbins and Jordan Christopher mixed up. I have a full database of every song played in the last eleven years, would have to look that up to say for sure.
Avatar 6:23pm cometothesunshine:

This song could have used more Snoopy
Avatar 6:24pm mce1965:

The band that always sounded like a different group on every song, except the Snoopy tracks
Avatar 6:25pm cometothesunshine:

Snoopy should have been more picky
Avatar 6:25pm mce1965:

Avatar 6:26pm cometothesunshine:

Cream making their Come To The Sunshine debut!
Avatar 6:30pm Minerwerks:

I think I share your feelings on Cream, Andrew. :D
Avatar 6:31pm cometothesunshine:

This is our social comment set - the rare genre of Christmas Protest
Avatar 6:31pm dale:

poor santa likes his thunderbird.
Avatar 6:31pm cometothesunshine:

This was decades before Eric Burdon declared WAR on Christmas
Avatar 6:32pm Minerwerks:

I just checked - had this on my 2010 Christmas mix.
Avatar 6:33pm Natalie:

Brian gets REAL.
Avatar 6:33pm dale:

pretty paper was 1963 - folks suspicious of the season then.
Avatar 6:33pm cometothesunshine:

The Joker Went Truthful
Avatar 6:34pm cometothesunshine:

I am sure Snuff Garrett left it to Al Capps to produce that one
Avatar 6:35pm cometothesunshine:

This one is as good as anything by Mouse & The Traps!
Avatar 6:36pm dale:

dylan must have been the most imitated after the beatles.
Avatar 6:37pm cometothesunshine:

This presaged Bob's God phase in the 70s
  Swag For Life Member 6:39pm izzy:

Hey, all! AS--Why might this be the last Christmas show?
Avatar 6:39pm Natalie:

This is a particularly fine track
Avatar 6:40pm dale:

brubeck driving that sleigh for sure.
Avatar 6:40pm cometothesunshine:

Izzy - by the end of this show, I will have played more than 120 tracks in this genre: I don't know if I will find another 40 great ones in my lifetime.
Avatar 6:41pm mce1965:

Well, there's always Bowie/Crosby
  Swag For Life Member 6:42pm izzy:

I see!
  Swag For Life Member 6:43pm izzy:

BTW, Thanks for the Freakbeat tip--cool place, tho I didn't have much time to dig!
Avatar 6:44pm cometothesunshine:

I am glad you went!
Avatar 6:46pm cometothesunshine:

And at the rate I am making winter shows, I am not sure where I will be in five years.
Avatar 6:46pm Debbie D.:

Great show, Andrew!
Avatar 6:46pm cometothesunshine:

sorry for the scratchy sounds
Avatar 6:47pm mce1965:

A fine Philips pressing as always... but the magic shines through anyway
Avatar 6:48pm cometothesunshine:

I actually called Bill Inglot and he confirmed the 45 version was never issued on CD
Avatar 6:50pm cometothesunshine:

Knickerbockers - always great
Avatar 6:52pm cometothesunshine:

Thank you Debbie!
Avatar 6:53pm cometothesunshine:

So glad you could hear this one.
Avatar 6:58pm cometothesunshine:

These spoiled brats are blue!
Avatar 7:00pm Debbie D.:

Who knew that winter is your favorite season!
Avatar 7:01pm cometothesunshine:

It makes sense when you are from California.
Avatar 7:01pm Debbie D.:

Avatar 7:02pm cometothesunshine:

Also, a birthday in early January. Each new year is renewed possibilities.
Avatar 7:05pm Natalie:

Not to be confused with Stormy
Avatar 7:06pm dale:

Avatar 7:06pm cometothesunshine:

April was Nino's sister, why kick him out of the house?
Avatar 7:07pm dale:

ha ha!!
Avatar 7:07pm cometothesunshine:

Cold indeed
Avatar 7:08pm dale:

great song. it's like jim reeves the blizzard except no one freezes to death.
Avatar 7:10pm Sonny Rickles:

Lovin this show! Getting a chance to hear live for a change here in cold San Diego!
Avatar 7:10pm dale:

this fountain of youth is beautiful.
Avatar 7:11pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, Sonny!

Avatar 7:25pm mce1965:

Thank you for the beautiful winter sounds, Andrew... if this is the last one, it was a compilation of brilliance!
Avatar 7:26pm cometothesunshine:

Thank you jfm and mce
Avatar 7:26pm glenn:

my pal and ex neighbour richard keelan wrote a couple of the songs on that jan and lorraine album
Avatar 7:27pm cometothesunshine:

I wish it wasn't the last, but I made the last one in December 2011 and it took this long for the bucket to refill.
Avatar 7:27pm cometothesunshine:

Lovely, Glenn - I have some demos they sent to the Bee Gees if my memory serves.
Avatar 7:27pm Natalie:

So you're saying there is hope for 2025?
  7:28pm jfmlaugh:

With Andrew and his quest for the best...they'll be another!
Avatar 7:29pm cometothesunshine:

I made all of the previous winter shows at home with my cats. Now they are teenagers, I am divorced, live somewhere else and by some miracle I am with them to listen to this last one in my old house. I am grateful for that.
Avatar 7:29pm glenn:

hope is a thing with feathers, that shits on trump's head.
Avatar 7:29pm Natalie:

I suspect so!
Avatar 7:29pm cometothesunshine:

And I am grateful to all of you for listening over the years.
Avatar 7:29pm Natalie:

Rebellious teenagers always come back around.
Avatar 7:31pm Natalie:

Perhaps we need to start a record drive?
  7:31pm ?:

Andrew - any favorite Paul Revere & The Raiders Christmas songs that you would choose?
Avatar 7:31pm cometothesunshine:

The whole album is unique and great.
Avatar 7:32pm glenn:

to be honest, about the only christmas music i can even stomach is vince guaraldi.
Avatar 7:33pm cometothesunshine:

I played Macy's Window on the last Winter edition
  7:33pm jfmlaugh:

thats my favorite
Avatar 7:33pm cometothesunshine:

Hoping this is an acceptable alternative, glenn
Avatar 7:35pm glenn:

yeah, it doesn't mention santa or any god stuff, so it's a pass.
Avatar 7:35pm cometothesunshine:

I have played a lot of versions of Snow Queen over the years.
  7:36pm jfmlaugh:

I think that it was you that was mentioning The Tokens the other day...agree with how underrated they are
Avatar 7:36pm cometothesunshine:

Very much so
Avatar 7:37pm Natalie:

What part of the ride does this song play?
Avatar 7:37pm dale:

nice mod organ on this tune.

A couple of genuine hits in the show - Tell It To The Rain & My World Fell Down.

Now I see! Thanks for that
Avatar 7:49pm cometothesunshine:

You can hit the star next to each song title, Natalie
