Clocking Off For Christmas...

View from our upstairs window last Friday..

Well that's almost it from me for this decade..Happy Christmas, Feliz Navidad and Mele Kaliki Maka to everyone who's chipped in with contributions, comments, recommendations or link ups. And a discreet nod to those stealthy footed silent types who read but never write..

I say almost, as I'll be back on the 31st. Having been asked to do the tunes for a New Year's shinding, I've rattled up a roll call of 'bangers', 'bankers' and rootin' tootin' tunes - running to a total four CDs worth. Tune in New Year's Eve and you can grab the full set for a limited period only...

So that'll be me blogging off, logging off and leaving you with two tunes used in the last poddy - The Ventures (soundtracked our cracker test) and Big Tiny Little (the piano madness used to close the 'cast). So until then, have yourselves a swinging little Christmas playmates and go easy on the scoops and stodge..

Big Tiny Little - Tiny's Christmas Medley




The Ventures - Jingle Bell Rock



If you haven't checked it out yet, you must get your snow-boots over to Fades In Slowly, where Adam has created a 'bloggers of the world unite' selection box in the style of Peely's festive 50 with between tune links from St John of Peel...

Hey Mond, Merry Christmas to you, Mrs Mond and the Mini-Mondos. Thanks for a great year of blogging and may Santa's sacks be full and your festive frolics funky x

Mondo said...

What a lovely bunch of bloggers you all are - I feel like George Bailey at the close of 'Wonderful Life'. Don't forget there's a blog~meet scheduled for January (22nd or 29th - can't remember which), if anyone any fancies a hook up?

Coops is coming along for the Elms run this year EF (I passed the CDs over to Piley last night) 29th isn’t it?

PS Davy - that's Mrs M and the miniest Mondo in the pic, trudging back from helping a stuck ambulance

Piley said...

Merry Christmas Mondo, to you and yours. I'll catch up with you on the 29th (correct by the way!)

All the best mate.

You have a good one, and thanks for all the great tunes over the year.

Very jealous of your snow.

Istvanski said...

I shall be downloading the Xmas podrophenia when I nip down to the Internet cafe. Love the artwork cartoon charicatures. That's a lot of snow you've had, reminds me of February.
Merry Xmas to you and yours!

Too late; already started on the Christmas biscuits & “Tia Maria”
Merry Christmas Mondo, Mrs M & mini M’s...x
(The snow was so pretty, wasn’t it)

ps Next year sounds like it’s going off with a bang over here, can’t wait!

Mondo said...

29th it is then P - Love the Giles Christmas card. What a winner, cheers for that.

'Treacherous' and 'lethal' are how our pavements (and roads have been described FC). It's literally impossible to walk on the componded solid ice and snow combo.

Hope to see you over Christmas Choco for a Stylophone jam off perhaps?

Fill your boots IV, and have rockin' rolling Christmas yourself

Mondo said...

We must have been posting at the same time Lil..I'm on the Martini Rose with coke and ice this year (that and real ale - not in the same glass like!). Hope you and G have a rip roaring Christmas and slap up Christmas curry on the day x

drew said...

All the best to you and yours Mondo.

thanks for the all the tunes and podcasts over the past year.

Keith said...

I hope you will have a very Merry Christmas. Enjoy your time away from blogging. I plan to have a nice break. Plus with my modem being dead, I've got to get another one. I'll see you in 2010.

Furtheron said...

Have a happy Christmas Mondo... see you after the break

Mondo said...

Have a good one Drew - and keep those Friday bangers a'coming matey..

Lazing and loafing are on the menu for me this year Keith. Hope your modem meltdown gets sorted. Perhaps Santa will sort you a new one..

And you F-Ron, loking forward to more of your home made tunes for 2010

Coop said...

See you and the blogging crew on the 29th sir, my CDs are done and ready to hand out. Have a Rusty Goffing Christmas and a Stylophonic New Year.
I knocked up a festive Frankie to sign off the year at A Patchwork Of Flesh http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/2009/12/gallery-117-happy-christmas.html

Mondo said...

It was very early doors (pre 7) and the little'un wanted to be up and out - and they happened across the trapped Ambulance - so thought I'd do the decent thing and capure the moment see ;)..Martini Rose and Coke, well it is the 'festive' season..

Love the FrankenSanta Coops - see you at the Annual Elms CD swap-o-thon, on the 29th

JC said...

Have a good one Mondo. And thanks for everything this past 12 months.

Hope Santa is good to you
