  1. Dude! It looks like momentum is gathering. Unlike past years, I've managed to keep up with you by playing your shares almost every day. That option is in peril, what with ten tracks from you two days in a row. Thanks for today's playlist, and thanks for all your hard work, Ernie.

    1. Come on, ten tracks isn't even a full album, you can do it! But thanks for trying. :)

  2. "The Things We Did Last Summer"? Next you'll be claiming that "Autumn Leaves" is a Christmas song.

    1. Well, it's from a movie with Christmas in the title, that's my only excuse... And I've thought about Autumn Leaves many a time, but haven't succumbed yet. I did a couple seasons where anything with the word Doll or Candy in the title counted, so it could be a lot worse. :)

    2. In your defense, "The Things We Did Last Summer" does appear on Dean Martin's two Christmas for Capitol and Reprise, plus it appears on the Dean Martin TV Show LP, making it a prime candidate for this series.

  3. Another Winner with the second Bobby Lester and the Moonglows cut! It's got the feel of a full band without any instruments playing! You can tell that the group and the audence are having a great time here.
