Santa & The Doodle-Li-Boop

Click here to see a video of the 78 record playing.

An early childhood obsession and subject of much early turnatablist experimentation ("Why don't you look in the closet??tesolc eht ni kool uoy t'nod yhWWhy don't you look in the closet??tesolc eht ni kool uoy t'nod yhWWhy don't you look in the closet??tesolc eht ni kool uoy t'nod yhWWhy don't you look in the closet??tesolc eht ni kool uoy t'nod yhW...") turns out to have been written by the founder of The Society for Indecency to Naked Animals (SINA), Alan Abel. There's a documentary on netflix/hulu about him, called "Abel Raises Cain" - you can also still get this and a few dozen other peculiar holiday recordings here:
