As promised, here’s the second half of the Christmas Stories recorded exclusively for the 2015 edition of my 25-Hour Holiday Radio Show on 103.3 fm WPRB.

I’ve posted them in the order they originally aired during the program.

Part one can be found here.

Christopher Williams is half of Glass Bees. The source of the original tape he built his piece around was recorded in a Kmart several decades ago. It can be heard here.

Mr. Bret Saunders is from Denver, Colorado where he hosts the KBCO Morning Show. He recorded this short version of a holiday classic using a Microbrute synth and a couple of electronic noise gadgets. The melody hangs in there pretty much to the end.

Pat Byrne hosts the live variety show “Prove It All Night” once a month at WFMU and helps produce The Best Show every Tuesday evening. He’s a good dude.

Neal Markowski – “Wonderful Christmastime”

Live. One take. No overdubs or anything else – just composer/musician/noise maker Neal Markowski in a room with the instruments. The ending is actually shorter than it should be, but as Markowski recorded this on his cassette 4-track, the tape kept bunching up for some reason towards the end, hence the “jarring” cuts in the solo drums.

Pete & Alex from Star Wars Minute – “What Can You Get a Wookiee for Christmas (When He Already Owns a Comb?)”

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

My favorite podcast is Star Wars Minute, a show that analyzes, scrutinizes and celebrates each Star Wars film one minute at a time. Hosted by Pete The Retailer and cartoonist Alex Robinson, SWM is currently on it’s fifth season, slogging their way through “Attack of the Clones.” On this “bonus episode,” a song from “Christmas in the Stars” is examined.

John Gentle – “Christmas Alone”

Brett Davis is a comedian, wig-owner and not host of The Special Without Brett Davis, which airs every Wednesday night on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network.

Prowler – “Buyers Beware”

Philadelphia’s Prowler are no strangers to the WPRB studios, having visited the station thrice to play live on Jon Solomon’s weekly show. There are many different strains of their infectious, head-bobbin’ tunes for free download on their Bandcamp page. “Buyers Beware” is also found on their record “Trash Bag.”

Edith Frost – “Coventry Carol (arranged by James Dering)”

Edith Frost can be found on her website and/or Twitter.

James Dering hosts the Better Piano podcast.

This is their third contribution to the marathon in as many years.

These Estates – “Christmas Creep”

Bourbon-driven young Canadian trio These Estates broke from their hiatus to record a holiday song for you. Their two albums “Triumph, Reign” and “The Dignity of Man” are both well worth your time.

The Gotobeds – “FEEL THE WRATH OF MY X-MAS”

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Earlier this year Pittsburgh #clowns The Gotobeds released their second album (and first for Sub Pop) “Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic.” Boy is it terrific. If you like “smart-dude avant punk,” have I got a band for you!

SAVAK – “Christmas In Park Slope”

SAVAK was formed just last year by members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, Nation of Ulysses, and The Cops. Their acclaimed debut album “Best of Luck in Future Endeavors” is out now!

The public call for 2016 Christmas Stories!

November 1st, 2016

Each of the last five years I have asked a number of friends, musicians, comedians and others that I admired to record their definition of an original “Christmas story” to be interspersed throughout my 25-Hour Holiday Radio Show on 103.3 fm WPRB.

Come December 24, 2016 – the 28th annual edition of this marathon program will begin.

In 2011-2015, Mac McCaughan (Superchunk), wrestler/author Mick Foley, Glenn Mercer (The Feelies), Tom Scharpling (“The Best Show”), director Lance Bangs, Screaming Females, Pete & Alex from Star Wars MinuteChris Brokaw, Jennifer O’Connor, Peter Prescott (Mission of Burma/Volcano Suns/Minibeast), Rick Rizzo (Eleventh Dream Day), David Hill (“Snap Judgement”, “This American Life”), Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), Jon Daly (“Kroll Show”), Nick Thorburn (Islands), Doug Gillard, Rebecca Clay Cole (Wild Flag), Bill Goffrier (The Embarrassment/Big Dipper), Joel R.L. Phelps (Silkworm/The Downer Trio), Mark Robinson (Unrest/Flin Flon/Air Miami), Brett Davis (“The Special Without”), Seth Herzog (“The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon”), Boston Red Sox organist Josh Kantor, actor Ethan Sandler (“Crossing Jordan”), Matthew Reid-Schwartz (Kinski), Pat Byrne (“Prove It All Night”), Edith FrostThe Rutabega, SAVAK, Amanda X, The Gotobeds and many other remarkable folks have recorded pieces for the marathon.

2015’s stories are posted here (part one) and here (part two).

2014’s stories have been posted here (part one) and here (part two).

2013’s recordings can be heard here. 2012 stories can be streamed here and 2011 contributions reside here.

The time has come to build on this success with ample advance warning!

I’m not only going to be reaching out to more folks personally to join the ranks with works for the marathon’s 2016 installment but I also wanted to extend the offer TO YOU.

Record something between now and December 21st and there’s a solid chance it will make it into the show. It can be a reading of a favorite Xmas story, a cover of a holiday song you love or an original piece. I leave that in your hands.

Listen to some of the past works as inspiration if you’ve been stumped when I’ve called on you in prior years.

It would be great if these contributions did not exceed seven minutes but if you run long…I am likely going to allow it.

I’d love to get so many recordings that I can yet again debut one of these an hour throughout the marathon.

Submissions can be sent to this email address.

My lone request is that you do not post your piece elsewhere before it airs during the show! Afterwards knock yourself out, just mention the show when you do share on Bandcamp/Soundcloud/Et cetera, OK?

Please spread the word and have a happy holiday season. The stretch run to the marathon begins…now!

Warmly,

Jon Solomon
103.3 fm WPRB

Ps. Songs inspired by The Fall, The Ramones and/or The Misfits will always get priority status!
