Something a little different on tap--a very special edition of "Talking Animals"

It didn't make sense to devote Christmas morning to a regular edition of the program, particularly conducting a guest interview (much less two!) on that show.

But, since animal songs constitute one of the key elements of "Talking Animals," I decided to go all in.

With Flee's help--both suggestions of songs and selections from his vast music collection--I've fashioned a collection of Christmas-oriented animal songs to play that morning.

Sure, to pull off this conceit, I'll need to rely heavily on various versions of "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer." But even those will involve some pretty interesting artists, and we’ll also feature some far less obvious nuggets--for instance, "Dominick, The Italian Christmas Donkey."

And you haven't lived 'til you've heard The Barking Songs singing--well, barking--"Deck The Halls With Boughs Of Holly."

It may well prove to be a fun, loose, entertaining hour--perhaps an ideal backdrop for however you and yours spend Christmas morning. Either way, Merry Christmas! ~Duncan
