Christmas in Prison

I guested for an hour with Ron Jacobs on Whodaguy Hawaii radio. In that hour I was introduced to the touching holiday song, "Christmas in Prison" and maybe the worst girl group I've ever heard, Petty Booka. Other musical selections included "Pico & Sepulveda" (an LA classic) and the theme for one of my many failed series.

A new post follows shortly. Aloha y'all.

Ken, since you're also a sports guy I was wondering what you think of my steroid plan. Basically there's three options. One, grandfather in the steroid users like they did with spit ballers way back. Two, each team is allowed a set number of players who can, nay, are encouraged to ingest as many 'roids as possible. And three, only allow the small market teams to juice to level the playing field.

As I mentioned on the earlier Christmas music post, "Christmas in Prison" is available on the compilation album, "Bummed Out Christmas," along with such other holiday suicide inducers as "Christmas Eve Can Kill You," "Santa Got A DWI," "Christmas In Jail" and the dated-but-still-depressing "Christmas in Vietnam." Order now to have it arrive by Christmas morning! Happy Holidays!

Ah, a guessing game... was it the theme from Big Wave Dave? Or was it Gene Krupa?

Happy holidays!

Looking for the Almost Perfect theme, I found this on youtube. Maybe you want to link it yourself or provide some commentary or the lines..?
