While I am as much a partisan of WFMU as anybody, Jon Solomon's 24 hour Christmas-radio-extravaganza on Princeton's WPRB is legendary.

The Madonna version of Santa Baby is especially creeepy.

Wait til you hear the Dakota Fanning version.

I just found out yesterday there is a Puff Daddy/Mase version of 'Santa Baby'. I thank whatever divine influence has spared me from ever hearing that.

Can anybody recommend any good WFMU Christmas music archive shows?  I thought that Dan Bodah had a good one a couple of years ago.

Would it be bad to post something I wrote myself?

The answer is admittedly probably yes. But there is a chance some people might enjoy it.

The other day, I actually watched the movie inspired by this song.  And its sequel (what can I say--I was, as Andy might say, havin' a time).  The followup involved a boy dying and donating his liver to the beloved of the grownup Christmas shoe boy, a miracle that allowed him finally to recover from the trauma of his mother's death all those years before.  Fine holiday fare, although I think the makers of the film missed out on a great opportunity when they chose not to call it The Christmas Liver.

Thread bump for 2010. Happy holidays, Friends!

I'll start with F*cked Up's cover of "Do they Know It's Christmas."

Christmas is a menace to music. It brings out the worst in everyone, except for the Singing Dogs.
