12/21/2011 Freewheelin'


It was my Annual Holiday Music Show, a.k.a. "Not The Same Old Holiday Music Crap You'll Hear On Those Commercial Radio Stations".

It's sort of a show built around the spirit of Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas From The Family", which I've been playing since it first came out, circa '94.

Thanks to Angie Pykonen for hanging out, keeping me centered, and generally putting up with me. And, thanks to all the wonderful listeners who've sent their love and kind words thru the years.

Peace on earth, goodwill to all of you. Jackson
