It sure doesn’t feel like Christmas what with the mid-50s temps and all, but here at Boudin Barndance Central we devoted the 2nd half of the program to the many flavored songs of the season. It was the annual Boudin Barndance Xmas Party and we welcomed revelers galore into the studio for music, chow and cheer. The first half of the program was the usual mix and we did manage to feature some new releases from the likes of Katya Chorover, The Western Starlanders, Joe West, and the new Xmas Compilation My Favorite Gifts. Buttshaker of the week???? Brendan Hanlon & The Bat Men take the prize with “Christmas Party”. Now let’s all grab a cold one and get to the goods….
