Geography Div (Almost a new one subsection)

Don't know how you plan to celebrate, but this might provide some comparisons.
This old bear  might make it to midnite, but there's a warm bed shortly thereafter.

Boxing Day

The Minibears of the Geography Division seem to have had too much holiday cheer so it's
time to sit the little rascals down and have a listen to what Christmas really means.
I've never heard this version as told to Studs Terkel in the late 1950s.

and, (of course) it's also St Stephens Day, so there's this:

Hope you and Yours had a Merry Christmas ..........

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div (Plumb Pitiful Christmas subsection)

Thought I'd get this out of my system early this year.
Ray Davis doing Little Orphan Joe.
Every year at this time, Ray would devote at least an hour of his program to "Plumb Pitiful" numbers,
Jimmie Brown the Newsboy, Willie Roy, the Crippled Boy, The Baggage Coach Behind, etc,
Ray passed away on December 3rd five years ago.
I always enjoyed listening to his shows on WAMU in Washington, DC.  RIP Ray.

Back up band -- Reno and Smiley ...... from December 1971
