//// NOTES ////
*1 A great sentiment for anyone's holiday.
*2 a perfect antidote for the halcyon view of the noble cowboy & his surroundings. It sounds like this guy lived there, at least for part of his life.
*3 If shotgun shells are part of your holiday decorations we recommend you keep them well away from open flames.
*4 Great name for someone who makes music with common everyday tools found around the wood shop. Just your basic antique hand drill, hammer, anvil, T square, framing square, level, table saw, power hand drill & drill press. I sent away for the music & got blueprints.
*5 This song was loaned me by Ben the DJ for the reggae program Ital Vibes. On occasion he guest hosts on of the shows before we come on. When he does he always transitions from the harder core reggae towards something with a more country vibe. He says this is no problem because a lot of the reggae singers really like country & that country is, or was, very big in Jamaica. So this song says what I just did with a beat & a groove. Thanks Ben.
*6 A father called in & said his 4 year old had been walking around singing "and the walls came tumbling down" for the past couple days. Could we play the rest of the song. Moggy found this version of Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho.
*7 We love these guys versions of Christmas songs. They are the original & still champions on our book
*8 A Roger Miller christmas song that we forgot about till the lsat minute.
