Podrophenia 7 - Christmas Podding

Artwork by Paul Oddsock

Following in the tradition of festive specials Piley and I bring you a bumper edition for the Christmas Podrophenia : 10 tinsel tunes, 8 celebrity messages (can you spot them all) and 2 special guests as Marmite Boy and Coops join us for a sleigh ride through cyberspace..

Brian Setzer, Sufjan Stevens, Shonen Knife and Barbara Streisand are a few of the tunes hand-picked for the playlist. While in other news there's a cracker consumer test, possibly the most miserable Christmas song ever, retromania with Burley aftershave, Ronco adverts and Avon Boosters. A Wood Watch update and find out which one of us has, ermm, 'fiddler's fingers' ~ I say!

It's perhaps rowdier than our usual poddies as assorted other halves, 2 Mini-Mondo's and 1 Tiny Piley add some background clatter to the goings on ..

Serving suggestion - play it while you're writing or delivering cards, wrapping prezzies, enjoying a glass of egg nog (what is egg nog?) or trimming the tree. Whatever you're doing fill your boots and raise a glass ~ or is it fill a glass and raise your boots? ~ for Christmas.

I can't wait to listen to this. It sounds like it will be awesome. Hope you're having a great week. I also hope you're enjoying the holiday season so far. Cheers!

Tom McCrae! Sheesh.

Mondo said...

How's that Festive 50 coming on Adam? Buzzing to see what's on the list..

Cheers Keith - hope it tickles your tinsel..

Bit of glum ol' pudding isn't he Davy. The Judy Garland Merry Little Christmas sounds like this if you fancy a bit more bleak

Very nice work Mr Beathoven. Thoroughly enjoyable, thanks for letting me join in with your festive poddy.

Oh yes, love the Judy longtime - that's a proper old time sad and teary 'It's A Wonderful Life' like Christmas song from a top, top movie is that. 'Tom' on the other hand *does Snoopy noise* bleeeaaauugghhhh!. I bet he has a beard too. I blame Radiohead.

Mondo said...

Mr Beathoven, there's milage to be had in that Coops. Cheers for your tunes too, we ended up with a tasty selection box of sounds didn't we..

'Wonderful' recoloured version is on the viewing list this weekend Davy, along with the Charlie Brown's Christmas epi's.. just checked Tom Mac and he's beard~free but worthy and earnest by the look..

Loved the Souffle Stevens tune Marm and what album is We Free Kings from?

Thanks Lil, Happy Christmas to you and G too. Paul's artwork is great isn't it did you ever see his Birds in the Park pic? It's one of my faves..

Listened to whilst sliding through a freezing, snowy Brighton. I loved how excited you all got about the crackers!

And that Babs song - bloody hell, had she been on the Snowballs or something?

Great work, lads, keep it up.

Gonna try and get over my phobia of listening to my mates voices on a podcast and give it a go ! (sorry really irrational I know). I've got 5 minutes into it and all is ok at the moment, especially as I now imagine you as Beethoven !

Will report back over Christmas mate.
