The Hound

The two hour BCMS Christmas show will drop from the archive any day now; still another week left for the four hour version.

FaLaLaLaLa ADVENTure in Carols is still available as far as I know.

Getting a jump start with next week's addition(s) For a more in depth review if The Hound check this thread - http://www.mymerrychristmas.com/foru...64&postcount=5

Other than that, here are six shows available for download:

http://thehound.net/19871219/

http://thehound.net/19881224/

http://thehound.net/19891223/

http://thehound.net/19901222/

http://thehound.net/19921219/

http://thehound.net/19931225/

The sound quality ain't that great (32 Kbps 22.050 kHz Mono), but these are good shows nonetheless. Each one lasts a couple of hours so you should get enough Christmas music for your work commute to last a while! The shows are available for download either in their entirety, in segments, or by individual tunes.

OTR Anyone?

Old Time Radio Christmas shows abound on the internet. While looking to find something to share, I was overwhelmed by all the choices! Instead of making one choice, here is a link that will keep us busy for a long time.


http://channel1.radionostalgia.libsy...stmas&search=1

If you have an OTR favorite, chances are it's here. Bob Hope, Burns & Allen, The Shadow, Abbott & Costello as well as some big band shows for Crown and many many more shows are ready for discovery. Hence, the early posting so that we may get started!

Rev. J. M. Gates

For those who haven’t caught up on all the stuff from the last two weeks, we’ll keep it short this time.

Here are a couple of Sermons by the Reverend J.M. Gates. Together they run just over six minutes.

Did You Spend Christmas Day In Jail? – 1929

Death May Be Your Santa Claus – 1926

Red Ryder

Double A over at Christmas Talk reviewed “A Christmas Story” a couple of days ago, so I though I would be lazy this week (so I'm a day early; sue me) and re-run this article from the old TXP Newsletter:

November 18, 2006

Jean Shepherd wrote a collection of short stories for various magazines that were eventually collected and published in a book. Doubleday books released “In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash” in 1966. At least one of these stories would become entrenched in our modern day Christmas traditions.

Shepherd also hosted a radio show on New York City’s WOR from 1956 to 1977. Reading his Christmas short stories on the air became a Christmas Eve became a tradition for listeners of WOR.

Offered for your enjoyment this week is a couple of those readings as heard on WOR in the 1970’s. You may recognize parts of these stories that would become the nucleus of one of our holiday movie favorites. From radio tradition to television tradition, listen to the author read what would in 1983 come to the big screen. We know it as “The Christmas Story” and watch it every year during the twenty-four marathon on one of the Turner channels!

http://www.maskmusic.com/other_music.html Scroll down to about the fourteenth and fifteenth offerings entitled-

December 24, 1971 - Earliest Christmas WOR Jean Shepherd (mp3) - (10.65 MB)

December 24, 1974 - edit - Red Ryder WOR Jean Shepherd (mp3) - (9.34 MB)

These would be good to burn and take on the road for the work or holiday vacation drive! See if you can detect any differences between the short stories and the movie. “You’ll shoot your eye out kid!”

Under US Code, I plead a Fifth. If Crown Royal (fine Canadian content) isn’t available, I plead insanity. If insanity doesn’t work, I throw myself to the mercy of the Court Jester. If the Court Jester isn’t available, declare a mistrial and let my mercy remain in the capable hands of my nurse, Matilda (Carmelita ran off with another wheelchair).

I respectfully ask as my barrister, Montana Santa.
