Stevie Ray Vaughn's version of "Little Wing" took the title.
We are a tad shocked that Derek & The Dominos version did not garner a vote...

OK, it is the Holiday Season...and yesterday's word for Manic Monday was CAROL


"Frosty The Snowman" was written by Walter "Jack" Rollins and Steve Nelson
and was originally recorded by Gene Autry in 1950...
(and I was told by a special Chicklet, Frosty has feet!)

The following are 6 adaptations of the song...each with their own sound and feel

NOW REMEMBER, Don't be a puddin' head and vote by name alone...
listen to each and vote, because...








The winner will be announced tomorrow
And another song and chance to play too!

Well, it is CHRISTMAS SEASON so, we had to have an elf name...so here goes...

BlogTalkRadio Listen Live
Coming up this week on DR. BLOGSTEIN'S RADIO HAPPY HOUR:
(Live on
Tuesday December 18th at 9PM ET and forever archived at BlogTalkRadio.)

Bonnie "Eyez" Mercado is a model/actress who is best known as "the spy" on VH1's Flavor of Love 2. She'll join Dr. B and Dangerous Lee on the internet's fastest growing radio show.

Why did Flavor Flav choose Bonnie to infiltrate the girls and sort out which ones were only out for the rapper's cash? Why did Bonnie accept this mission? What, if anything, has this done for her career? Those hard-hitting questions and several softer ones to be lobbed her way.

Also this week, Brian Nuestro will be spending New Year's Eve weekend in Las Vegas competing in the World Series of Beer Pong. We'll get a sense of his training regiment, his hopes for winning the $50,000 prize and offer him last minute tips.

All that, plus we'll play "GUESS THE CHRISTMAS MOVIE" for crappy prizes, SUPREME COMMANDER OF THE CYBERWAVES Vinny Bond drags his Big Leather Couch into the Radio Happy Hour Lounge and chats live with the listeners,
Justin the Weatherman with his forecast and your calls at 646-652-4804

    No tidbits about SRV's version??? sheesh!

  3. RW Says:
  4. I voted the THE VENTURES looks at this point it tied with Bing (the child beater) Great post Vin!

  5. Twyla Says:
  6. Who you calling a puddin head???? LOL
    I actually listened to all of the samples today (including the Jackson 5 one, which was pure torture for me) and I voted for Bing and Willie. Haha that sounds funny.
    Oh and for your Elf name, I voted for Pinky Smickleifigus. :-)

  7. ANNDI: See...I knew you could do it!
    tidbits....hummmm...didn't think about tidbits...guess I should have...

  8. Schmoop Says:
  9. For some odd reason I have always liked The Ventures. Cheers!!

  10. ROGER: You could have voted for two....oooo is a child beater as bad as a wife beater? We had many people who slammed Ike the other day....

    TWYLA: If the puddin' fits...LOL...sorry for the torture...it would have sounded funnier if it were a Big, WIllie...LOL...I like Pinky too...

  11. MATT-MAN: not strange at all... I hear them and think of beach and sand and ocean and bikinis....what is NOT to like?

  12. Liz Hill Says:
  13. I like the scraggly Willie Nelson version Pinky ;-)

  14. OBLadyBug Says:
  15. Bing Crosby's version is a classic but I'm a little partial to George Strait. Great post dear Vin.

  16. TURNBABY: And this surprises me not...heheheheh

    OBLADYBUG: once again...not surprised...LOL Glad you enjoyed it darlin'

  17. That Jackson Five one was awful...LOL.

    Here's a funny story about this song in our house: We are always singing it, the kis and I, although none of us knows any of the words. I even goggled the lyrics and we'll try it that way but it just doesn't work. We suck.

  18. Bing all the way, but I found that Fats Domino version kickin'.

    Thanks for the fun, Bouncy Tootsie.

  19. Rainbow Says:
  20. HUH? Bing was a child beater :( Well then I will just keep my 2 votes to myself...but I did vote!

    Off now to get an Elf name for my blog.

    HUGS! Keep the fun happen' Vince!

  21. 108: KYRA ...the reaction to the 5 is surprising me a tad...Well, put on Bing and croon it out sista...

    SONGBIRD: I also loved the Fats version to be honest...

    SUEANN: Ummm yes dear, his son wrote a book years ago detailing Bing's need to slap the kiddies around...HUGS

  22. Mimi Lenox Says:
  23. Willie Nelson sang Frosty the Snowman? They did not teach me this in music school. I'm going to faint.

  24. Unknown Says:
  25. Strangely, I loved the Willie Nelson version. The Jackson 5 was just painful. The Ventures sounded just like "Tequilla". And I'd follow Bing to the ends of the earth.

    Can I vote for George Strait's Onion even if I didn't like his version?

  26. Unknown Says:
  27. Oh, and "World Series of Beer Pong?"

  28. katherine. Says:
  29. Willie and Bing...

    (cool...more than one vote...smile)

  30. Anndi Says:
  31. I told you yeasterday you had to provide tidbits... sheesh...

    I give up, he never listens....

  32. Tug Says:
  33. I should never read comments first...I'm listening now, & will NOT vote for or listen to Bing now.

    I will say, before voting - Willie Nelson is probably the singer of my favorite all time version of "Amazing Grace". Have you heard it?

  34. MIMI: How did YOU get a degree and NOT know that??? hehehehe

    DANA: Seems many feel the same way about the Jacksons...You can vote however you want, no one can tell who you voted for...

    DANA: Stop in tonight and find out

    KATHERINE: Yup TWO, as requested...

    ANNDI: I listen and as I responded to your other post, I will do a complete wrap-up after this is over... sheesh she never listens...


  35. RW Says:
  36. Shit! I missed the two vote choice & it won't let me vote again...awww well my second vote would be for Willie...Thats what I get reading your post without a cup of coffee! Sorry Vin!

  37. Sparky Duck Says:
