It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like OXMAS..!

OXmas makes your Christmas Cool
... indeed it is!  And on December 16th and 17th, Santa checks off item number one on my wish list with a mini-tour with an indie-rock band as part of the OXmas Christmas Special with Sudbury's Ox, and a sleigh-ful of special guests!  I'm special guesting on the OXMAS shows happening at Aeolian Hall in London on December 16th and at the PHOG Lounge on December 17th..!
     OX sends London some winter chill from way up north in Sudbury, bringing along flurry of special guests for the sleigh ride; including myself Allison Brown, Daniel Romano of Attack in Black, Jenny Omnichord, Andy Magoffin, Nathan Lawr and Dave Mackinnon of the Fembots!  The PHOG show on the 17th features Brian Dunn and Tara Watts as well as myself and Jenny Omnichord. The OXMAS tour follows the release of “Silent Night And Other Cowboy Songs”, a seasonal charmer as campfire lo-fi guitars combine with whizzing moogs and studio cacophony.  Sponsored by GROOVES, you can get advance tickets there or at L’Atelier Gregorian, The Village Idiot or the Aeolian Hall Box Office for $15.00, or at the door for $18.00.  $3.00 off the door price for bringing along a food donation to the Food Bank Of London.  Expect a festive event like no other for the holidays- eclectic performances of traditional and oddball carols, fresh baked vegan cupcakes, elves, Oxnog, and maybe even a visit from Santox himself!

Snow Covered Cabin in a secret Northern Ontario Location
...and as the longest night of the year draws nearer, ... Cozy up in your favourite armchair with a mug of peppermint hot chocolate and listen to the flicker of the crackling fire while tuning in to CHRW Radio 94.9fm on Wednesday, December 22nd for my annual “FOR THE FOLK” Fireside Christmas Hour-And-A-Half, broadcast live from my secret snow-covered cabin in the woods….!  Dale and Amanda are on Santa's "Nice" list for bringing you all such great programming since I left town, and as a reward he's given them both the night off ...- so I’m back on London’s airwaves for one night of holiday magic as I spin through classic nostalgic sounds of Christmas Past (some on LP!), and musical treasures of Christmas present… I promise no Robert Goulet this year.. but expect a few cheesy numbers (The Jingle Dogs?) thrown in the mix with some amazing folk, blues, gospel, bluegrass, R&B and country Christmas Favourites. And maybe Boney M, John Denver and the Muppets, and of course the Charlie Brown soundtrack. This year I might even share some stories and vintage recipes… The forecast is calling for Hank Snow so curl up real close to your warm radios for my heartwarming Christmas radio special on December 22nd, from 8:30-10pm on 94.9fm in London or over the internet at…!

And don't forget that "Viper At The Virgin's Feet" makes an excellent holiday gift and you can either send me a note at and arrange to have me mail you a copy personally, or you can pick one up by SUPPORTING YOUR LOCAL INDEPENDENT RECORD STORES such as GROOVES in London.  All the stores are listed in the "Stores" section above...

Happy Holidays and Best To You All in 2011..!
