    I am listening to the best Christmas show ever on XM. Wish I could get a copy of your play list or better yet a copy of the show to play next Christmas.

    Thank you,

    My wife and I just got off the Cayamo cruise and we saw both Buddy and Jim each time they performed. We also watched Jim’s documentary which was very entertaining.

    Go see them together live. It’s a gas. Find the documentary.

    We’ll be having brownies and milk tonight.

    Listen to their show this week. It was recorded onboard the cruise ship.
