    I agree with Yum Yum this time in the most part, but I have to say in 1956 my thoughts were on things other than my two front teeth. As always we can never thank Matt enough for sharings his time and expertize with us.

    Keith may be one of “December’s Children” but should not be allowed to play in any Reindeer games. For me, it’s the “Merry” Mr. Chuck Berry. God bless you Matt and all the FNCF fans.

    Chuck will run run away with this cat fight!

    I agree totally with Yum Yum! When he’s not yum yumming, he really says a mouthful!

    Merry Christmas to everyone, especially Matt and Kelly.

    Gotta be Chuck. I found Keef’s version not to my liking due to the production values.

    I had a feeling this would be a blowout, and so far, it is. This cat fight is definitely a no brainer. No one but Chuck Berry could do this song properly.

    now, I’d like to take this oppertunity to wisn all the night prowlers a very merry Christmas, and a happpy and prosperous new year. Let us all hope that Matt gets back on the air in the coming year, the cat fights continue, and that Juke In The Back, gets bigger and better.
    And to you, furry leader. I especially want to wish you and Kelly all the best for Christmas and a great new year. Thank you for the cat fights, Juke in the Back, and all the other great programs you’ve sent us to enjoy.
    Everyone have a cool yule, and keep on noggin. Don’t forget the meg.

    Merry Christmas to all , how can anyone not just go ‘chestnuts’ over the Keith’s rockin’ guitar and Santa growl? Love ’em both though, just two great classics! Happy Holidays MTC & K

    Merry Christmas!! Chuck Berry without a doubt. Keith needs to crawl back up the chimney. We checked out a bunch of versions on the hard drive and our second favorite, (god to I hate to admit this) was Lynryd Skynyrd – they actually did a great job.

    I actually did have to vote for Keith here. I hear the howls from other cats above, and I understand why. Chuck Berry’s great, no doubt, a true pioneer and a deeply influential artist who deserves all the acclaim he gets. But IMO, the only original thing Chuck brought to this take-two, as Matt pointed out in his e-mail today of “Little Queenie,” were the lyrics for “Run Rudolph Run.” It was very common in the 50s and 60s for a record producer to grab somebody who was selling records and yank them into to the studio for a one-hour session and have them re-record one of their hit songs with new holiday lyrics in a very cynical effort to squeeze out more sales out of the same song. If we were voting on “Little Queenie,” sure, Chuck gets my vote. But on “Run Rudolph Run,” at least Keith found something new to bring the table, both in vocals and lead guitar, and I thought it worked. Plus I could actually understand what Keith was singing and the pitch was arguably in the ballpark, much more than just about anything Keith has recorded since 1978. So I’m hoisting my eggnog for Keith on this one.
