Christmas cheer for all!
    Here's Santa Claus, direct from Graceland:

    And for those of you with broadband, you can listen to KZSU on the web... 33 hours of blues, ending with 9 hours of Christmas blues songs:  
 
KZSU 90.1FM will be hosting a 24 Hour Blues Marathon beginning at midnight on Christmas Eve and run until midnight on Christmas Day.  
That begins in less than twelve short hours away! After the conclusion of this 24 hour Blues extravaganza, the Byrd of Paradise will be spinning nine hours of the finest Christmas Blues vinyl known  
to man.

Good stuff, Steve!  
 
Merry Christmas to you, too, and to all the folks at Ampage (or anywhere else, for that matter).  
 
I think I'll go spin my Los Straitjackets Christmas CD now — I'm still figuring out the melody of "The Christmas Song" (chestnuts roasting, etc.) on the sax...

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Time to whip out my favorite Christmas album, James Brown's excellent, "Santa's Got A Brand New Bag."  
 
Merry Christmas to all!
