Children of the Sleigh Santa Sabbath 2015
"Santa Sabath was born one magic night when founder Bob Lee (The Freeks, The Amadans, Clawhammer, Mike Watt) was presented with an opportunity to do a Christmas show with his cover band The Bob Lee, and had two competing notions - should they do a set of Christmas songs, like "I Wish It Could Be Christmas very Day" and "Father Christmas", or do a set of Black Sabbath songs. Santa himself came to visit Bob that night, and told him that he shouldn't choose - he should do both at once. That night, the core of the Santa Sabbath discography was conceived."

Jon Solomon (host) 5:04:33 PM
HAPPY HANUKKAH!!
Bud Burroughs 5:05:09 PM
Hooray for more live radio!
Kat 5:06:37 PM
Happppppppy hanukkah !!!! woop woop
Jon Solomon (host) 5:07:28 PM
Wow, what a journey!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:08:36 PM
Got the audio working with two minutes to spare and then had a mono / stereo issue that caused the first song to have no vocals the first time through!
Krista 5:09:36 PM
Meyer has been OBSESSED with this song!!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:10:15 PM
It is absurdly good. A new Hanukkah classic.
Kat 5:09:48 PM
do u know what happened with the first issue? and that second issue sounds bizarre
Bud Burroughs 5:10:13 PM
Oops, looks like you didn't do that thing you have to do to make our comments visible in the chat.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:12 PM
Thanks, Bud!
Kat 5:10:42 PM
omg speaking of a puppy for Hanukkah, we might get a cat for Christmas. animals for all
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:37 PM
The first issue was that the password WAS correct but the old user name had saved.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:56 PM
The second issue was insert vs. line on my board.
Krista 5:12:07 PM
A full on cat or a kitten? Do you have a specific cat in mind? Long hair? Short hair? Orange? Tuxedo?
Jon Solomon (host) 5:15:45 PM
WHAT WILL YOU NAME THE CAT?!?!
Kat 5:15:38 PM
short hair ! no specific cat in mind, gotta discuss more with los parents, I was thinking we should adopt a cat because I assume theyre adopted less than kittens but idk.! it is in the works
Kat 5:16:16 PM
ive been looking on Petfinder lol. im not entirely sure if you can visit shelters now but that'd be cool if we do end up getting one lol
Kat 5:16:55 PM
great question, jon. my mom loves pets with very human names like Craig or Tina. we'll see about that hahaha
Jon Solomon (host) 5:17:52 PM
I heard someone on a podcast say earlier this very morning that all pet names should be one syllable.
Kat 5:18:02 PM
hahaha. why? cus they sound better? or easier for the pets
Jon Solomon (host) 5:19:19 PM
Because when they get out and you have to run around calling for them it is much easier to say!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:19:44 PM
I had an old boss with a dog named "grandma" and when the dog got out there he was in the middle of a busy street yelling "GRANDMA! GRANDMA!"
Kat 5:19:37 PM
oh noooo hahahah
Jon Solomon (host) 5:22:31 PM
Thanks to ML and Dante for the assist in getting the show properly sent into your ears. Was a moment there where it seemed unlikely!
Krista 5:22:20 PM
There are so many kittens! Old kitties are nice because you know what they are like in advance. Kittens are fun because they're kittens!
Kat 5:26:37 PM
yes exactly! thats the other reason why an older cat would be better, so we know what they're like in advance. but yes there are also so many kittens. ahhh !
Kat 5:26:52 PM
and also, kittens ! so cute
Kat 5:27:11 PM
do you accept cash app??
Krista 5:27:32 PM
Meyer offered up a furry smarty candy from under the couch, I'll send it to the PO box
Jon Solomon (host) 5:30:54 PM
Wow, this is a very different experience than my last 32 Wednesdays!
jimbeaux 5:33:15 PM
Adopt! Adopt! Adopt a pet!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:34:57 PM
THE HANUKKAH YOU DESERVE.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:35:24 PM
Thank you, Meyer. That sounds delicious.
jimbeaux 5:35:29 PM
Dreidel Kennedys
Kat 5:36:09 PM
yes yes ofc adopt
Krista 5:39:48 PM
We just heard a live over zoom version of this song from the Workers Circle Yiddish School "latke palooza" kinder club program yesterday!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:42:59 PM
I believe the band that just finished has an actual rabbi in the mix.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:46:55 PM
Yes, all sets this show *are* eight songs long...
Shaun Carr 5:47:52 PM
Happy Hannukah Jon! Any chance next year (hopefully in normal times by then) you will do a show/set at Johnny Brendas in Philly before Christmas like you did a few years ago?? I was there and it was awesome! Thanks.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:48:41 PM
I'll probably do something somewhere if it is safe to do so. Last year I DJ'd a craft fair at Fleisher Art Memorial for pre-Xmas and it was super fun!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:48:46 PM
Happy Hanukkah!
Patrick Rapa 5:54:05 PM
Sounds great!
Courtney Bennett 5:56:07 PM
Happy Hanukkah Jon!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:56:13 PM
Thanks, Pat. All those pre-show live tests and it still almost didn't work as intended!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:57:05 PM
Was very stressful and also almost undone by something very small. Sheesh.
Patrick Rapa 6:10:36 PM
the lowly krill
Patrick Rapa 6:12:37 PM
(i missed whatever the small thing really was.)
Patrick Rapa 6:13:49 PM
This remains the only version of Little Drummer Boy I can bear
Jon Solomon (host) 6:15:18 PM
Had a little bit of the updated login info saved wrong to push audio properly. I guess that's why you go live 10 minutes early, to make sure! A re-run aired for 90 seconds and then I was able to get onto the transmitter (figuratively).
Jon Solomon (host) 6:15:36 PM
The lowly krill indeed.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:17:00 PM
Lowly but pesky!
Krista 6:19:06 PM
Baleen maintenance is key
betsy grossman 6:19:38 PM
I'm digging the 8-song-long sets
Jon Solomon (host) 6:22:09 PM
Hey, Betsy!
betsy grossman 6:22:05 PM
hello! happy hannukah! happy snowstorm!
Patrick Rapa 6:25:33 PM
This is good soup radio.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:26:19 PM
Need power to hold for 90 more minutes, after that do your worst storm (within reason)!
Maura Johnston (1) 6:32:10 PM
Crazy 8s! Crazy rhythms! Hello!
Maura Johnston (1) 6:32:46 PM
I can't believe I missed LA Guns!!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:33:24 PM
LA Guns is nine seconds long!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:33:39 PM
So it was hard to not miss!
Maura Johnston (1) 6:33:54 PM
Hahaha
Jon Solomon (host) 6:35:51 PM
I say "THEY ARE CANDLES!" year-round.
Christine Duffy 6:35:56 PM
Hey DJ Jon *waves* πŸ‘‹ Fun show tonight!
Christine Duffy 6:36:24 PM
LOL "They are CANDLES!"
Jon Solomon (host) 6:39:03 PM
Glad to have you back in the chat, CD!
Christine Duffy 6:40:55 PM
Happy Hannukah! ❄❄❄
Krista 6:41:50 PM
There is some nice fluffy snow outside! We are eating brats and cabbage! So cozy.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:43:29 PM
Oh lovely. One minor thing I don't like about my home is the lack of a good view of snow coming down when it is dark out. Back patio light is helping a bit though!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:43:41 PM
I keep having to go out front for the best view.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:44:19 PM
A little sleety at present, was fluffy a second ago.
Patrick Rapa 6:50:36 PM
live candle lighting is good radio
Patrick Rapa 6:51:13 PM
(and I've heard both radio magic tricks and radio puppetry)
Brian D 6:53:17 PM
HH Jon
Jon Solomon (host) 6:53:28 PM
HH!
Brian D 6:54:23 PM
So glad you do this & the marathon each year. I think this year is my 23rd or 24th year for the marathon!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:54:57 PM
Thanks! Can't imagine not doing it!
kentman 6:59:09 PM

kentman 7:11:32 PM
where the latkes?
kentman 7:11:39 PM
are
Jon Solomon (host) 7:16:20 PM
In general? We made ours two nights ago, let me see if I can get one defrosted in time for my next mic break (though I am full of black bean soup).
Patrick Rapa 7:24:43 PM
Is this Shrimper? I forget
Jon Solomon (host) 7:25:12 PM
Close. The Goblins, same tape as Shrimper recording artist The Moutain Goats though (hope I don't run out of time before that one)...
betsy grossman 7:29:45 PM
does playing a song tonight mean the song cannot be played again during the 25 hr marathon?
Patrick Rapa 7:29:39 PM
Anybody else think this singer sounds a little like Jon?
Jon Solomon (host) 7:30:21 PM
It does not necessarily.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:30:26 PM
Who says it isn't?!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:30:34 PM
Well, save the band.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:31:38 PM
Seriously, please hold me to adding an hour to this show next year. It is time and I've got enough music to do it successfully (and then some).
Jon Solomon (host) 7:32:02 PM
Also, next year Hanukkah begins on Sunday, November 28?!?!
Patrick Rapa 7:32:02 PM
that's enough to do two marathons with adequate recovery time in between
Jon Solomon (host) 7:33:23 PM
Seriously!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:33:41 PM
Glad I looked it up NOW.
betsy grossman 7:35:04 PM
thanksgiving bam! hannukah. i like having a year to prepare for that.
betsy grossman 7:35:20 PM
also i do love this Sharon Jones tune.
Christine Duffy 7:36:02 PM
Lovely Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings. πŸ’— And YES to a 4-hour marathon in 2021!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:37:14 PM
Who knows, perhaps I'll find enough material to make it five but hopefully I'm back at WPRB and all is well next Hanukkah!
Christine Duffy 7:38:15 PM
I'll drink (tea) to that!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:40:06 PM
Mango seltzer on this end, but same.
Corage Mike 7:40:50 PM
Your the best...simply the best.
betsy grossman 7:41:11 PM
yay mango seltzer!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:42:04 PM
That's very nice of you to say, Mike.
Corage Mike 7:42:44 PM
Brian D ... did you like that Jorma live stream?
betsy grossman 7:43:23 PM
this track is great
Jon Solomon (host) 7:45:36 PM
Going to end up with at least 11 songs I meant to play tonight. Even with the four minutes (probably less) I lost up top, there's plenty left over for 2021!
Corage Mike 7:52:46 PM
