    I have one Tom Russell album, Steve and it has a song on it called Gallo del Cielo about a fighting Rooster. Did Tom sing this one?
    A great song I reckon

    Next one up for me is a song I would never have heard if I hadn't lived in Germany for a while in the early 90s, and had the chance to listen to the Bob Bob Harris show on Forces radio. He liked this a lot and I liked it too. (No, Bob Harris is not the Bob link - it was sung by Billy Falcon)

    Billie Holiday did this song in 1939, which is among the most powerful songs ever written.

    Last day of November. Oh, how I've loved this time of year. In years past, the arrival of the holiday season gave me a reason to play my ukulele on camera and share it with the world. I've recorded dozens of Christmas songs on my uke; I think there might even be a playlist somewhere. See, in the past, I felt I needed an excuse to make uke videos. Something which justified what otherwise looked kinda narcissistic. Christmas gave me that excuse. Nowadays, we've got the Seasons of the Ukulele. Now, it's not just me showing off, I'm part of a community and this is what we do!

    Still, being able to do a Christmas song feels great. Like silk stockings do.. ahem... no... It just so happens that song was adapted by a guy named Bob Rivers.



    On a sad note, my Yeti Blue USB microphone wouldn't work for this video. I think it's an old worn-out cable causing the problem.

    No, I don't think the fighting rooster came out when I saw him. There were a lot of songs from his excellent new album, which has been on in my car since.

    Maybe we need a Tom & Tim week.

    This song was inspired by our oldest daughter Meredith (who has performed with me in the past in the Seasons). She used to play this song on our keyboard upstairs. She and her husband are now in the Czech Republic for a year so I thought I would do this for her. Wish she could be singing with me.

    Thanks for hosting Steve. Tons of ideas for this, but as often is the case, more ideas than time. This a Bob Dylan tune. I figured it out by ear and as such, it varies a lot from Bob's version.

    I don't know many Tim songs but there are few Toms I can think of. I did Gallo del Cielo back in week 97 (Mexico week) when I was still very green in the Seasons. I like to think I've improved but others may beg to differ.

    This time a song from Bobbie Cryner, whose Cd I bought about the same time as I was listening to Bob Harris in Germany, although he didn't play this one. It's a CD I've liked a lot over the years, but I don't know what happened to Bobbie...
