Free: Surf and Sleigh

You're probably knocking yourself out (and your checking account for a loop) getting "holiday" gifts right about now. Fortunately, the folks at iTunes offering up something fun and free: a rollicking surf-punk version of Leroy Anderson's Sleigh Ride by L.A.'s Los Straightjackets from their 2002 album "Tis the Season for Los Straightjackets."

TNLD says act now (the free download is only good for a week or so)

The link comes courtesy of the excellent blog Free iTunes Downloads, which I recommend adding to your RSS reader if you're into that (or just check it out every so often, Grandpa). I've also updated the righthand column here with a Free Stuff nodule with links to other sites with freebies for you to stick in your ears.

Merry Grimble!

Nice! I'm on that site like a septuagenarian at Jardine's for dixieland night.
