To begin, all credit for the inspiration behind this show goes to my brother, Junkyard Wilbury. Secondly, there's nothing wrong with peace on Earth and good will, so stuff that curmudgeonly behavior right up your own stocking. Getting gifts is fun, giving them is even better. May your heart be warm this season.

As ever,
Duke Wilbury

We played a lot of killers on this edition of the ECU. We have some comedy hysterics, some jazz-based hip hop killer beats, some weathered country troubadour brilliance, some transcendent reggae from a genuine master, Brit-Pop craftsmen, AND we found time to include two new Tom Waits cuts. Frankly, we're beat, but that's not going to stop us now. We're on the verge of a breakthrough here at ECU headquarters. We've got some great stuff in store for the new year. We'll be including more comedy and spoken word bits and a lot more hysterical soundbites. The freeform show we did earlier in the year really got our collective creative juices pumping and since we did the "Kick the Darkness" show Duke's head is more clear and focused than it's been in a long time, if ever.

We hope you have a blast tuning in.
