Poirier's Diner on the Move

Poirier's Diner was known as the Top Hat the first time I went there. A 1947 Kullman has had a few lives  before it closed.

There's new hope.  Check out this video story from the Providence Journal.

Sounds of the Season

Not dissin' the "virtual duet"...well, maybe a bit. Most of the coolest of the cool Christmas songs were done live...way before YouTube was even a twinkle in MTV's eye, so it's not easy to find live performances.

Here are a couple to tide you over. Now hang your stockings, and say your prayers, 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

Sounds of the Season

Since I couldn't find a video of Elvis singing my favorite...Santa Bring My Baby Back to's another fav...Santa Claus is Back in Town. He leads right into Blue Christmas. 

All with the added bonus of it being from the 68 Comeback Special.

Sounds of the Season

Young or old, don't you just smile when you hear your favorite Christmas song for the first time each year?

Who can resist "those holiday J-I-N-G-L-E Bells"...the piano in Bruce Springsteen's Merry Christmas Baby...or the Jordanaires crooning "Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me" in Elvis' rendition of the tune.

Inspired by Little Steven's Underground Garage radio show this week, here are some of my favs as we countdown to the Big Day.

Starting off with a performed by Chris Isaak and Michael Buble.
