Show Notes: Lots of response to this week's combination of great 2003 releases and holiday songs. Happy Christmas to those of you who celebrate it. Gesund Hanukah and Joyous Kwanzaa to others; and may the rest of you just have wonderfully spicy, relaxing holidays.

# Our cover song of the week was the Soweto String Quartet's reggae version of the jazz classic "Take Five." This CD just in, but from what I've heard, it may be SSQ's most diverse and strongest of their five CDs.
