I've been listening to WPTR this evening, and they seem to have gone over to Christmas 
music.  When I first tuned in, they were playing the Carol of the Drum, one of my favorites.  
They've just finished with the Singing Dogs version of "Jingle Bells."

Incidentally, the Singing Dogs originally came out around 1955 or 56, on a 45 with Jingle 
Bells on one side and Polly Wolly Doodle and Three Blind Mice on the other.  I believe it was 
done with a lot of recorded barks of real dogs.  I used to like to play it on WMUA, when I did 
a pop music show.  For some reason, whenever someone said to me, "I heard your show 
today," they always mentioned that they heard "The barking dogs."

Now if Bob did that kind of DJ antics on WJIB, he could say that Misty was going to sing for 
everyone, and ...
