Groovin’ Blue Xmas 2016 Show #1

Happy Yule from WAGRadio's staffers, wacky hangers-on, underground supporters and weirdly extended relatives & pals.  We've got two shows (at least) this 2016 Holiday Season for all y'all.  This is the first.   What we've done is gone back to our obsessive librarian Bill Reiter and his pal Sunny Sweet Daddy Fonk Wong and asked them to pick their favourite Xmas shows from the last ten years.  They picked show 2009 and 2010.  We added a coupla' new choons and took one or two others out.  We also tightened up the original production a tad.  The WAGRadio Yuletime muse is the music's history.  So without adooing further here's a less talkative and more eggnogged-out DJZigZag aided by the beyond-mello ululates of brother Blu Mankuma and his soulful jellyroll.
