Wore my Nashvillains t-shirt today while doing some shopping. I walk into a clothing store where they're playing Christmas music - Jingle Bells by the BSO comes on! Nice! Later in the grocery store an older fella nearly takes me out on his way to the bell peppers, smiles and laughs... later on the other side of the store he almost does it again, but stops dead and says "you first this time! I recognize that shirt!"

I expect one day someone will see me in a Setzer shirt or hear the music coming out of my car speakers and they'll strike up a conversation about Le Setz. And of course we'll be instant friends! Smile

What's a bell pepper?

Is that like a capsicum?

Capsicum=Bell pepper? Hmm. Learn something new everyday.

This week....this week! The Christmas tour starts this week! And next week, they land in the great state of Wisconsin. Can't wait, I tell ya. Can't wait!

Time to break out the ol' Christmas cd's.

All is good in the land of Hot Rod Girl. All is very good.

And don't forget to tune in to the Tonight Show this week Wednesday....

Take care,
HRG

It's amazing how fast things are rolling towards the end of the year.

I love the fact that November/December are just default Setzer months for so many people that have made the show part of their holiday tradition, whether they're hardcore fans or not. I love that the music is so much fun and generates so much happiness that you can almost be guaranteed to hear it while shopping. In many cases that's the only time you'll get to hear recorded Setzer "in public" (unless someone happens to play Stray Cat Strut or Rock This Town), so it's a whole 'nother reason to love Christmas. That and it means Le Setz on TV and radio! Smile


I watched the Christmas DVD for the first time last weekend - what a show! Can't wait to see all that spectacle in person for the first time!!

It is pretty cool to be shopping and then hear a random BSO Christmas tune on the store radio. There's a local jazz station that has been playing quite a bit of new and old non-Christmas BSO tunes. It might be related to the upcoming tour and the release of the album. I don't know for sure. But, I honestly don't care what the reason. It's just a great thing to be able to hear them get airtime on the ol' radio!

'Tis the season!

Unfortunately you never get to hear any of the BSO Christmas tunes while you're shopping in the UK santa

All we get is the same old crap:
Wham's - Last Christmas, No
'Band Aid - Do They Know It's Christmas', No
'Cliff Richard's - Mistletoe and Wine' etc... No
(although I don't mind Slade's - Merry Christmas Everybody Razz )

This is why I wear my headphones when Christmas shopping, so BSO can be played loud !! Twisted Evil
(although Hillbilly Casino's Hang Your Stocking And Say Your Prayers gets played just as much! )

Cheers PP pirat

Gosh!!
I've already bought the Xmas presents for my family but I am very happy to see that here in Spain we are not having Xmas tunes so far... I hate it when Xmas is starting in mid November!!

For me X-Mas and BSO Sound belong together. I love it.
But here in europe it is like Pirate Paul wrote,
Wham, Band Aid and some local artists.
But at my home BSO is playing for the next 6 weeks... santa

Btw: i love more the american music way of X-mas.
the trad. german X-mas songs are so dark and depressive. US Songs got swing and rhythm.
And where in the whole wide world is Santa drivin a Hot Rod... Wink

Even before I ever heard Le Setz, swing music was always a holiday tradition in my house growing up. Once the weather turned cold, Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, and the like, were playing non-stop in my house. I knew every nuance to every "hit" Glen Miller song by heart by the time I was 10.

Now, as an adult, I not only continue the tradition with BSO, but go beyong what my parents listened to, bringing in more oldies: Luois Jordan, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Nat King Cole Trio, etc.

I never put out Xmas decorations before Thanksgiving weekendd (I consider it sacriledge), but I just bought at Target the "Charlie Brown Christmas Tree"... you know... the one from the cartoon with only ONE BULB? I bought that at Target for $15 and it's already up on the mantel!
