Apparently Ye Red Baron Done Shot Up this No
Fenders Post, ack-Ack-Ack-Ack-Ack-Ack!
“Everybody Knows A Turkey and some
Helps to Keep the Season Bright!”
Although neither Snoopy or thou Red Baron will
be taking Off today. Since it feels Nippy enough for another very rare arrival
of Snow here in Bumfiddle’ Florence, which is a rarity due to our proximity to
Sea level Ho Ho Ho!
As little did I, or cadres ‘O it’s loyallisteners
then knew. That the day after Veterans Day 2022, would be the final time that Cool FM, Eugene’s 99.1FM Radio Station. Which None
of us can pick up anymore on Ye Oregon Coast via Florence’s Transmitter. When
it’s Not Foggy, Raining, Hailing out and you’re holding your Elboz’ just right,
Oh Never Mind!
Would Began Thar final, yearly, multi-weeks Holiday
Programming of playing Nonstop round Ye clock 24/7 Nothing but Ack Ack Ack
Christmas Songs Barrage goes thru New Years.
At first I couldn’t figure out why they went off
the Air for weeks in February? Before one day they returned to the Airwaves as
The Beat! Playing Hideous 1990-2000’s Rap ‘n Hip Hop music, WTF! A far cry from
what I enjoyed listening to on their radio station for nearly five years!
As this is a really crappy way of telling me I’m a
Dinosaur, and my Age Demographic Don’t matter to Yuhs G-Damn Advertisers!
Although News Flash, I refuse to listen to your new format Bastardoes!
I actually enjoyed this yearly tradition, since
it was the only time ‘O year Yuhs could Hear such Classics as John Lennon’s so
this is Christmas, which is definitely my Numero Uno X-Mas Song!
Along with The Beach Boys ‘lil Saint Nick “run
run Reindeer” song. Or I want A Hippopotamus for Christmas. Alvin and The Chipmunks,
chuck Berry’s run run Rudolf, You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch along with other various
Classics like Bing Crosby and David Bowies Peace On Earth-Little Drummer Boy Duet et Al.
Not to mention I would always hear some Vintage
Christmas song I hadn’t heard before. As a few years ago I spent several weeks
trying to figure out that it was The Carpenters singing Sleigh ride from their
1978 Album Christmas Portrait, but I digress…
Whilst I most definitely got a Smile on
my face when hearing for the very first time ever during the winter of 2021, The
Ballad of Snoopy’s Yuletide Dogfight!
As the song is by The Royal Guardsmen, a
Florida Rock Band who later became known as the “Snoopy Band!” As their Snoopy Christmas
song was recorded in 1966. With the song reaching No. 2 on the billboard Hot
100 and was certified Gold in early ’67.
Funniest bit ‘O trivia is the Band
recorded the song without Charles Schulz’s initial permission. So their record
label Up North Eh! In Ye Great White North of Oh Kanaduh’ refused to release it
due to potential legal issues Stateside with Messer Schulz.
So the Band put out a very blatant
re-issue called Squeaky ant The Black Knight Up North Eh! Which also became
popular in Ye Frozen Tundra before Schulz gave his permission for the song.
Hence, naturally I got a Wild Hair to
“See” if I could find said Squeaky and The Black Knight Great White North “Import”
version, for which I was super Surprised that it came up almost immediately, Ja
And although Snoopy, Woodstock and Ye
Red Baron All lived to Fight Another Gory Day, Ho Ho Ho! Unfortunately that
Damn Baron Von Richthofen done Destroyed a perfectly good working radio station,
meaning Thar won’t be no round thee clock Christmas music to listen to this
year upon thoust Mystical Isle of NoFendersville…
Since after All, It used to be the “Most Wonderful Time of The Year,” SPEW! Now,
does anybody know
where I can buy a Turkey? Or how Much this Damn Bird Weighs? Ho Ho Ho…
Happy boxing Day, Yall!
