The 12 Days of Strombo Show

Thank you, George and Bob, for your 12 Gifts of Christmas. Great selections .. all of them.

I would like to point out two things to you however.

1. The 12th day of Christmas gave us John Bonham. Though I can’t say I disagree with you on this point, and realizing how hard this decision must have been to make, an honourable mention (at the very least) must go to Moonie. Remember that incredible drum solo in “The Kids Are Alright”? No one ever has and no one ever will play drums like Keith Moon of The Who. How tragic that both of them were taken by alcohol – Bonham by drinking 40 shots of vodka for breakfast and subsequently suffocating on his own vomit, and Moon overdosing on medication for alcohol withdrawal. Both climbed the “Stairway to Heaven” and “died before (they) got old” *insert bad joke drum roll here*.

2. The second point I would like to make is in regards to the selection of the Partridge Family’s song “Get Happy” as the gift for the first day. Everyone, EVERYONE, knows that the best Partridge Family song is “I Think I Love You”. Just ask anyone. 😉

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to George, Bob, Rich and all the staff of the Strombo Show. Thanks for all your hard work and may you have an amazing 2011!
