Years ago, back before the internets, my friends Matt and Jim had a band in Wicker Park, Chicago, called The Howards. Richard Milne on WXRT has a radio show called Local Anesthetic, featuring the music of local bands. In December he airs the Local Anesthetic Holiday Spectacular. Bands record a special Holiday or Christmas song and greeting and send it in. The entries are 30 to 45 seconds long and Richard informs me that he has 5 cd's worth of these jingles! Some day, I hope to share them all. For now, here are Matt, Jim and The Howards with Stuff Her Stocking. Oh, the image to the left is of Matt and I delivering futons together during my summer leave from North Pole duties. That's me doing the heavy lifting and Matt sipping the latte. Also, here is a link to Matt and Amy doing a little elf boogie.
