    I just interviewed Laurence Juber, former Wings member, on my podcast. As a result I have been on an insane Wings kick.

    For the past few days I've listened to "Back To The Egg", "London Town", "Venus and Mars" and "Wings Greatest".

    Things around here in Earl-land have been rather hectic. Working retail at Christmas has a way of taking some of the fun out it all, although helping people find the right music or movie for their family and friends has its own rewards. Speaking of music, let's get down to the next installment in the Christmas song journal.....What's new in your collection this year?

Diana Krall, Anita Baker, Jessica Simpson, and (heaven help us) Kenny G have new ones out, but none of these seem to be destined to become Christmas classics.
