Welcome to The Tuna Melt Music Sharity Blog!

It is here that I post old records that I've ripped
to Mp3 format (and grouped in .ZIP files) via File Sharing Sites,
album cover scans and, sometimes,
somewhat coherent ramblings related to said shares.

None of the shares here are "borrowed" from other blogs.
All of the items shared are rips of Out-of-Print
(or, at least, very difficult to get)
Vinyl Records from my own collection.

Come on in. Look around.
Scroll downward to find available links.
I hope you find something you like.

If you don't,
you can always come back later, as the variety
of what is made available should be pretty wide-ranging.

Ken Griffin: The Organ Plays at Christmas


Gettin' all ORGANIC at Christmas Time!



This Album Is Good for the Planet! If you Download It, and listen to it, You'll Be Less Likely to Purchase a "Environment Destroying Product".

Ken Griffin was HUGE in the 50s (probably the most popular and biggest selling Organ Player of all). I've never found him to be nearly as interesting as Lenny Dee, but I do like his Holiday Offerings.

I think you will too!


Ken Griffin: The Organ Plays at Christmas
  1. Joy to the World
  2. Silent Night
  3. Silver Bell
  4. Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer
  5. Away in a Manger
  6. The First Nowell
  7. Adeste Fideles
  8. O Little Town of Bethlehem
  9. Kringle's Jingle
  10. Here Comes Santa Claus
  11. I'll Be Home for Christmas
  12. White Christmas


I gotta admit… This record just Dries Me Right the Hell Out! It makes me Thirsty as Can Be!

I allowed Traitor Vic to come out of his closet earlier tonight and he hit a HONERUN, boy howdy! We enjoy this drink, too, around The Holidays on Mars. Of course, the Holidays we enjoy it around are different from yours, but that's okay. We call this one The Thing Attached to The Side of The Supersonic Space Rocket. It's a cultural difference.

The Sidecar
Here's how you make it:

2 oz. brandy
½ oz. cuantreau
Juice of ½ lemon

Shake and serve in a Cocktail Glass with a Sugar Rim.

Here's pretty much everything you'll ever want to know about Ken Griffin:

Oddly, there's no mention of his multiple Gold Glove awards with the Seattle Mariners - I may be thinking of someone else...

Very Cool! Great Site. I'm surprised I hadn't run across it yet. I'm actually a much bigger fan than I probably sounded in the post. Thanks!
