Music Scripture doesn't say it be we know those angels were singing at the manger. And music has been the heart of Christmas ever since.

There is truth to it...Having been a fan of Bob's in the past and having seen him three times I would say that he is about the last person I'd expect to record a Christmas album. But stranger things have happend! Twisted Sister has made their Christmas album and Christmas show staples of the holiday season...Go figure!

I'd give Bob's work a listen but I'm afraid I don't have very high hopes!

I heard it as a news story on the radio. The report said the tracks would include "Here Comes Santa Claus."

This is either gonna be real good or real bad! Hope Ol’ Bob doesn’t pull a Paul Revere and the Raiders and serve up a big hunk of cheese on us!

Here’s Bob with his Theme Time Radio Hour Christmas shows:

Those of you with X-M Satelite Radio will be familiar with Bob's show. TTRH is archived by season and show number at the above link. For the two part Christmas 2007 show, scroll down to:

TTRH01-34-1-ChristmasAndNewYearsPart1 rapidshare archive 80006 KB
TTRH01-34-2-ChristmasAndNewYearsPart2 rapidshare archive 72016 KB

I right clicked on "archive" to download direct. Rapidshare takes you to their webpage but may download faster, especially if you have an account.

All the other great shows of the first season plus shows to date of the second season are there as well.

There is even a show for Binger - TTRH01-05 and one for Crown - TTRH01-28. I don't think either of them venture much from the Countdown thread, but imagine their delight if or when they discover their special theme!

The fearless leader of Christmas Vinyl Hounds over at www.FaLaLaLaLa.com was quoted in the L.A. Times today. The King of Jingaling his ownself weighed in on the Bob Dylan Christmas offering.
