Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

A Modern Stone-Age Family Christmas
Just too many great visuals from this episode to show two or three... Fred Flintstone gets a part time job in a department store to earn a little extra cash for Christmas. He is a failure at almost every job they assign him until the store Santa gets sick and Fred sits in. It's a perfect fit! He's so good in fact, that when the real Santa is too sick on Christmas Eve, he recruits Fred to deliver the toys for him. There are two songs that Fred sings in this episode; Christmas Is My Favorite Time of Year and Dino The Dinosaur. Both of these songs are in the out-of-print set Hanna Barbera's Pic-A-Nic Basket Cartoon Classics so I don't need to post them as soundbytes. Fred does sing a shorter version of Christmas Is My Favorite Time of Year at the end and that is posted below.
