Good Reception

1603 Music - "Charlie Brown Christmas Special Theme"
1606 "Mistress for Christmas". AC/DC
1613 Joan Jett Christmas tune
1617 Unid Christmas tune, 40's?
1621 "Winter Wonderland"
1623 Reception fading a bit, music is just above floor now
1629 "Stepping into Christmas" Elton John
1633 Signal gone
1644 "Silent Night & Christmas Card From A Hooker in Minneapolis" Tom Waits. Reception coming back
1649 "Greensleeves"
AC, how 'bout the first pirate broadcast of "Merry Christmas in East Haven ('staven)?".
 I'll explain if played.
1656 "The Season's Upon Us" Dropkick Murphys
1700 People invite themselves over his house.  Signal going again.
1712 Happy New Year song
1739 "Merry Christmas from East Haven"   So, when I (of Italian ancenstry) relocated to Southern Connecticut four decades ago, I learned, and true to this date, that by percentage the Greater New Haven is the home to the most Italian Americans.  The town which surpasses all is East Haven.  A New Haven DJ did this tongue and cheek song about Italian customs around the Holidays.  How very true, I take no offense.  East Haven is slurred to 'staven by the locals.  Had my seven fishes last night  ;)!  Thanks, AC - you're the best!!!  Time for the annual Christmas family stroll, I'll be back.

Thanks, AC for the accompaniment to opening gifts 🎅!

Nice Christmas morning present. Nice program with all of the participating pirate operators but the signal is weak and the noise is making it hard to hear at times. Thanks for the broadcast AC.
