The first hour has one of my favorite Fibber Molly Christmas shows. This one from 12-20-08. Also in the third hour a funny bit with Mae West and Charlie McCarthy from 12-12-37. This helped get Ms. West kicked off NBC for more than 10 years. All this and music too.
What better way to start a sub-zero day than warming up with the incomparable Esther Phillips? That’s how wwe start this week’s show, which also includes birthday sets for Carla Thomas and Keith Richards, some newly reissied vintage Shirelles and an extended set of Otis Redding’s immortal 1967 performance in Paris!
