So can I edit out the WFDU mentions and any other audio (weather, promos) that would tie this to WFDU and air this on my commercial station during our Christmas programming?

Michael Fremer's picture
I don't think that's such a good idea... I mean if you do it I can't stop you from doing it and I doubt FDU would find out but I'm not sure if it's legal to do that... I am able to post it here due to their generosity and good graces so it's not something I'd care to abuse..but it is up to you....

I'd love to play it but only with permission. Great job as always!

Good show Michael! Great to hear tunes that are new to me, even if there 40 years old. Just picked up copies of A Christmas Gift for You and Ella Swinging Christmas, both without a doubt digy dubs but still better on vinyl than seedee. Had the Ella on cd and the vinyl, well you know. Wish I had an org of the Philles, the reissue while not bad isn't great. But WOW Darlene Love's voice! I'd only heard Marshmallow World on a commercial before, great tune wish you could have shared that one to. Good show, keep up the great work! Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

Also got the "A Charlie Brown Christmas" today AP 33 1/3 version, sounds wonderful, can only imagine how good it would be on 45. The cymbals in Oh Tannenbaum on your stream was coming from 3 feet to the left of my speakers! Loved it!

I was listening to this program on headphones last night, and I noticed another program that could be faintly heard in the background. This was easier to hear during the parts in which you are talking. Thinking that it might be inherent to my system, I listened today at work to a completely different download. It's the same, and the dialog matches what I heard at home. The same phenomenon can be heard on the Lacquer Show. I'm guessing it must be something in your studio equipment (possibly from the HD1 program that is being broadcast at the same time as your recording). Just a wild guess, but once noticed it becomes very annoying because it can be heard during quiet music passages as well.
