Hung Stockings






























All right!  Here we go.  Daily posts from here on out, reflecting our obsessive need to survey the whole wide world of Holiday/Xmas/Seasonal/Yuletide joy!  We're still gonna do some regular-type posts as well, but those will be supplements to yr daily fix.

We've got some great tunes on tap, so if you don't like one day's selection, the next day will be sure to tickle yr tinsel.

Like last year, we're also gonna offer up a special re-post section, where we feature tunes from previous years' madness.   So, if you've got a request, let us know.

To kick us off this year we've got a nifty, rootin' tootin', doo-woppin' little tune from Bill Lacey and the Ebonaires (not the tune of the same name by The Prairie Ramblers from a few years ago). Get out yr toy pistols!   Following that, it's the ubiquitous Brenda Lee, with a boppin' little ditty about loneliness at Christmas. 

For our re-post special, it's one of the greatest Xmas songs ever, courtesy of The Sonics, with a swell cover by Santa's favorite trash banger,  and perennial Mountain fave,  Billy Childish.  Tasty!

Trim my tree baby!

I've been meaning to ask, is there any chance that you might replace Catch That Train & Testify's link with my new blog? Here's the link if you want to check it out first:

Cracking start!

My vote re-ups wise has got to be for the Wanda Jackson Christmas tracks you've posted in past years...I've always seemed to miss the window!

Looking forward to what else you've got up your sleeve this year :o)
