12.18.09 JOHN PIZZARELLI JOINS X-MAS IN HELL!!!!!
Mr. Pizzarelli is one great dude. We were told we had 15 minutes, and he stayed for 45. And he was all over the X-Mas in Hell thing. And can he ever play that gee-tar. Thanks again to Ted Potrikus for coming over to guest host and for bringing the Pappy Van Winkle! Thanks to Gina Hyams for setting up the interview and for the photo above. And thanks a million to John Pizzarelli for stopping by.
Next week on Christmas Day I'll be replaying either 2007's Jingle Bells Marathon or 2008's Funky X-Mas show.
