    Tim,

    I am deeply saddened that no tune from “Have Yourself a Tractor’s Christmas” album appears in your play list. “Jingle My Bells” is a favorite around our house.

    I tell you what – you buy the album and if you don’t like it, I will personally send you a check for $9.99.

    Happy holidays,

    Doug

    I appreciate the offer Doug but I have the Tractor’s Christmas album around here somewhere. I’ve had selections from them (and Asleep at the Wheel) on the list in previous years. I’ll add a few tracks to the list just for you. :-)

    As far as Regis Philbin singing holiday songs… I’ll pass, Dave. :->
