  5:15pm Listener Phillip In The Bronx:

OK who wants some of this kfc whole chicken in a bucket?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Ken From Hyde Park:

By now, KFC should be touting a "Merry Extra Crispmas" formula.
  5:37pm GListener MW:

aww this lovely duet just makes me miss the pre-LateShow "character" of Stephen Colbert
  6:02pm Jett:

That Material w/Nona Hendryx track used to get a lot airplay during the holidays in the eighties at my home. Haven't heard it in a few years. Very cool!
  6:03pm David Colangelo:

Can we hear “Up with People”?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm ParUbi:

Loving the broadcast, thanks Therese!
  6:16pm Jett:

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Therese. Thanks for always playing great stuff. Para pa pum pum!
  6:16pm Chris:

This is like a preview of Jon Solomon's 25 Hours of Christmas.
  6:21pm fredr:

Excellent show Therese! Merry Christmas!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Therese:

Jon Solomon is a gift and a treasure. (Even though he's on a different radio station.)
  6:24pm choggie:

gonna eat me some gefilte 8 daaaaays!
  6:25pm Chris:

What's weird is I hate the real version of Little Drummer Boy but love this one. Oh no doubt, I LOVE his marathon. It's the one time I don't listen to WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Ken From Hyde Park:

One should watch a fried egg during Jonathan Kane - blogfiles.wfmu.org...
  6:28pm The Butterman:

Good one Ken, I just tuned in and thought Stashe took over the turntables
  6:32pm Jett:

Oh Cannon Bomb!
  6:40pm Jett:

Always used to play this August Darnell track at Christmas on my radio show, our radio station was located on Riverside Drive in NYC.
  6:49pm zumzar:

If i hear yet another Christmas song my head is going to explode. Over and out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Therese:

If that's the case, @zumzar, Gaylord promises there will be no Christmas music on his program.
  6:54pm BH:

did the Supreme Court ever rule on the question of "Is 'I Don't Believe In Christmas' considered a Christmas song"?
  6:54pm phat:

can't deny Otis Redding.
  7:00pm Jett:

Can't deny "The Mistletoe and Me" by Isaac Hayes either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm Gaylord Fields:

It may be true that I won’t be playing Christmas songs on my upcoming show, but that not because of any Scroogey/Grinchoid dislike or disdain. Why, Therese’s Yuletide offerings today are providing me bagfuls of comfort and joy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm mariano:

Johnny Adams! Does anyone today have the vocal range to belt out "Reconsider Me"? For the record, I've been enjoying the hell out of the Holiday tunes today on FMU, as usual I've heard a bunch of stuff I had no idea existed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm patrick321:

I remember stumbling on Ski Party decades ago, just flipping through channels and then being shocked when James Brown came on screen.
Avatar 7:12pm northguineahills:

@Gaylord: so you might say Therese is providing bagfuls of beatific bagatelles bleeding beatific bliss?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Gaylord Fields:

@northguineahills: Well, now I don’t have to.
  7:15pm johnzo:

I just posted a zany christmas video/song... it’s real short:
also according to my grandma Bing Crosby wrote this song about spending christmas on a drunk at a hotel in Bennington VT... she says it was his annual tradition to go on a bender by himself... but come to think of it did he even write this song? I should probably look that up before I keep spreading that story... nahhh!
Avatar 7:17pm Mod Mokka Matti:

I would like a big bag of buttery baguettes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm mariano:

That's a hoot, @johnzo!
Avatar 7:21pm northguineahills:

Martin Denny's version of Enchanted has no reference to xmas, but potherwise has the same melody....
Avatar 7:23pm northguineahills:

Free Design!
Avatar 7:24pm northguineahills:

I need to get more of these Peanut Butter Wolf mix comps....
  7:25pm johnzo:

thanks Mariano! thinking about finally posting my Bernie song soon... also a song my friend and improvised on my porch called “kill the crackers”... neither of those are holiday themed tho.
  7:29pm phat:

Sock it to me Santa!
  7:30pm johnzo:

anybody know if James Brown got royalties from this?!
  7:38pm Listener Robert:

Was Therese just doing Richard Nixon on "Laugh-In"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm listener 126464:

  7:40pm Jett:

Very Nixonesque.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Aitch:

Musty Santa!
Avatar 7:43pm Andrew S:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm patrick321:

@johnzo I'm sharing that bit of brilliant inspiration locally but broadly. Thx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Therese. Happy holidays and a prosperous 2020!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm patrick321:

Brilliant show Therese! Happy holidays and a brave new year to all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm mariano:

Stream just went down for me, fyi. Thanks so much, Therese! Happy Holidays, look forward to your shows in the coming year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm mariano:

It's the connection on my other computer, never mind!
  7:59pm johnzo:

thanks Patrick! gonna drop my new demo in a couple days hopefully. this is the last one:
  8:00pm johnzo:

Also I probably have to take that video down if I wanna keep my job cause my boss is pissed that I besmirched the good name of Ace Hardware.. says corporate takes this kinda shit seriously
  8:23pm choggie:
