2020 King of Jingaling Fling

So, 2020. What can be said?

In trying times it’s important to remember what is truly valuable to us and what really matters. So much of the great music of Christmas was the product of chaotic times (WWII, Vietnam, etc.). When chaos reigns it’s so important to focus on the love of those who matter to us and to reach out to those who are hurting in order to help and to support and to heal.

May we find ways this season to unite as fellow travelers on our brief journeys here.

Thanks for the music and friendship: Ernie (Not Bert), Music You Won’t (Possibly) Hear Anywhere Else, Left and to the Back, Junk Shop Juke Box, Big 10-inch Record, Lord of the Boot Sale, Madrotter Treasure Hunt, Holly Jolly X’masu, Merry and Bright, Hi-Fi Holiday, Christmas A Go Go, Mistletunes, Hip Christmas, Christmas Underground, Andy Cirzan, Rob Martinez, Mitchel Kezin, Laurie Gilbert, and the regulars of the FaLaLaLaLa Fireside.

May this music provide a soundtrack to new Christmas memories for you and those you love. And may those dear to you soon be near to you once more.

Wishing you health and happiness now and in the new year!

Music compiled, mastered, and packaged by The King of Jingaling for FaLaLaLaLa.com.

This is dedicated with love to Josie, Salem, and Eleanor.
