Breaking news! Tom Waits to be inducted in the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame! Not that he, or us, probably gives a rat's ass about the hall, but it's the recognition of his peers, at long last, that we appreciate. Tom's our hero, of course, and we say...good on ya. More to come on this development....
And why does UPS suck so much? Are they trying to ruin Christmas for everyone? Just sayin'...
Well, then. As promised. Yet another beatnik Xmas post. And this is the ultimate, daddy-o (did anyone really talk that way?). Regardless, these swell songs should keep you groovin' over yr "cool yule". And that aint no jingle bell jive. Oh yes.
Our featured tree trimmed and beret-wearin' guests today are Jimmy Bowen, Miles Davis and Bob Dorough (of the mighty School House Rock fame), and Sam Ulano. Swing, Christmas cats, swing.
And for the Re-Post, hep cat, Special...well, let's go all out. We've got immortal Yuletide coffee house glee from Babs Gonzales, Patsy Raye, Donny Burns, Johnny Guarnieri, and Edd "Kookie" Byrnes.
