Hi Andy, I haven't downloaded this week's show yet, but am looking forward to hearing this version of The Wraggle Taggle Gypsies, O! The only other copy I have is from Mike Scott's Waterboys. I bet Dan Levinson gives it a swell treatment.

Are you planning a special edition show for xmas and/or NY's eve?

And, I gotta ask - is Wake Up! Chill'un, Wake Up! your secret theme song? ;-)

Lastly, congrats on the site award! I have found some amazing sites through Confetta's site, I"m sure you'll see an increase in visitors.

And have a safe and happy jazzy holiday season. Cheers, CP

Thanks! I didn't realize "Wake Up! Chill'un, Wake Up!" was a secret! I suppose if I put it at the top of the show, like others shows do, it would be more obvious.

My special for Christmas week will be the interview with Rich Conaty. I may have something counter-intuitively unseasonal for Dec 25 and I'll probably upload something for New Year's Eve.
