I featured the 1984 collaborative single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” by Band Aid. I then played tracks from famous artists who participated in this project. I’d like to thank fellow SDF member xmanmonk again for being my special co-host for this show.
“Band Aid is a charity supergroup featuring mainly British and Irish musicians and recording artists. It was founded in 1984 by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise money for anti-famine efforts in Ethiopia by releasing the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” for the Christmas market that year. On 25 November 1984, the song was recorded at Sarm West Studios in Notting Hill, London, and was released in the UK on Monday December 3. The single surpassed the hopes of the producers to become the Christmas number one on that release. Three subsequent re-recordings of the song to raise further money for charity also topped the charts, first the Band Aid II version in 1989 and the Band Aid 20 version in 2004 and finally the Band Aid 30 version in 2014. The original was produced by Midge Ure. The 12” version was mixed by Trevor Horn.” (Wikipedia)

Tonight we read The Trumpet of Terror, by Deborah Lerme Goodman. This book looks surprisingly well-written with excellent references to Norse mythology.
Intro music is the Icelandic folk-song Krummavísur. The English translation of the lyrics are:
The raven slept in a rock-rift On a cold winters night There are many things that can hurt him Many things that can hurt him Before a beautiful day came He pulls his frozen nose From underneath a big rock Underneath a big rock Everything is frozen outside You can’t get anything at the beach I’m so hungry I’m so hungry If I go to a house Fat at home (a nickname for The dog) forbids me To pluck from the garbage To pluck from the garbage The earth is covered in ice There is nowhere to set the table Full-fledged birds can fly far. Full-fledged birds can fly far. But even though I look everywhere There’s just one color What can a raven eat What can a raven eat? Dead, lying on its side is A fat mutton near a fence, Who once was fast. Once was fast. ‘Caw, caw! Ravens, come here! Caw, caw! cos’ ready for us is, a feast on cold ice. a feast on cold ice.
You know the christmas cat that cat is very large We dont know where he came from nor where he has gone He opened his eyes widely glowing both of them it was not for cowards to look into them His hair sharp as needles his back was high and bulgy and claws on his hairy paw were not a pretty sight Therefore the women competed to rock and sow and spin and knitted colorful clothes or one little sock For the cat could not come and get the little children they had to get new clothes from the grownups When christmas eve was lighted and the cat looked inside the children stood straight and red-cheeked with their presents He waved his strong tail he jumped, scratched and blew and was either in the valley or out on the headland He walked about, hungry and mean in hurtfully cold christmas snow and kindled the hearts with fear in every town If outside one heard a weak “meaow” then unluck was sure to happen all knew he hunted men and didnt want mice He followed the poorer people who didnt get any new clothing near christmas – and tried and lived in poorest conditions From them he took at the same time all their christmas food and ate them also themselves if he could Therefore the women competed to rock and sow and spin and knitted colorful clothes or one little sock Some had gotten an apron and some had got a new shoe or anything that was needful but that was enough For pussy should not eat no-one who got some new piece of clothes She hissed with her ugly voice and ran away If she still exists I dont know but for nothing would be his trip if everybody would get next christmas some new rag You may want to keep it in mind to help if there is need for somewhere there might be children who get nothing at all Mayhaps that looking for those who suffer from lack of plentiful lights will give you a happy season and merry christmas

I’d like to dedicate this show to Marcello, our dear SDF friend christyotwisty’s cat, who passed last week… also to froggyme’s cousin’s cat Hannibal… and to all the cats, including my very own Muggsy, who have left this world and gone to cat heaven. May they all rest in peace. (photo courtesy of christyotwisty)
