If you listen to KTCK-AM (1310, The Ticket), perhaps you've heard: Tomorrow night, from 9 till midnight, I'm yet again hosting a Christmas-music show. Which reminds me of this Darlene Love, um, standard? At last, an excuse for collecting far too many Christmas odds and sods lo these last few years -- and, why, yes, you just may hear Steve Martin and Paul Simon's unreleased "Silver Bells," matter of fact, amongst other cuts seldom heard on radio at this most wonderful time of the year.
That said, as I spike the egg nog, spark up the mistletoe and put the finishing touches on the Christmas Eve playlist, I'm more than happy to take your suggestions. Just last night, Noah Bailey slipped me Johnny & Jon's Jewel classic "Christmas in Viet Nam," which I'd somehow forgotten all about. No doubt it's but one among many overlooked gems needing a spot on The Nice List. And so, dear Friends, leave your requests in the comments, and I'll see what I can do.
