It is a lowlife, legendary and diverse affair – this Christmas show. We tread the boards from the nudge-nudge lowlife of “I know what you want for Christmas,”  by Kay Martin and her Body Guards, dig the Stooges, of the Three not the Iggy kind,  that would be The Three Stooges, dip a toe into reggae with John Holt, Aretha Franklin speaking frankly, DDT takes a wee, and Elvis forgets the words and George Jones‘s woman done him wrong again. Oh and don’t get me started on the sleigh bells, we have sleigh bells, we have cow bells, we have snow, we have jangle, jingle, so many Santas….

So sad to have to report on the passing of a true legend, Don Van Vilet, aka Captain Beefheart. We will be paying tribute to his legend as one of the leaders of experimental, fun and interesting music…

So many great Christmas tunes, so little time…You will notice the playlist is toooooo long for the two-hour 6-8 slot, so somethings gotta go…I’ve cut, culled and pared, but how can we part with the cheesiness of Wayne Newton and his “Jingle Bell Hustle” or do we cut one of the two, or is that three Christmas surf songs., we played Tom Waits Christmas card from a hooker…classic last week, but its  just too damn perfect in a  lowlife and legend way  not to play again…..decisions, decisions..

Feel free to comment, request, suggest, etc. and like us on FaceBook. we are live at 89.3 FM  KAOS Radio, if you are in the Olympia or Tacoma area of Washington state, and stream live at kaosradio.org every Tuesday evening PST  6- 8 p.m. , sorry no podcasts at this time, but we hope in the future…

As usual. many of the tracks are available for legally free download at
