Saturday Matinee – BR5-49, The Moron Brothers & Septura


What a pretty Christmas song.
BR5-49 took their name from Hee-Haw skits featuring Junior Samples as a used car salesman who proffered BR-549 as a five-digit phone number. It was also the number of an International Trucks engine used in tractors and fire trucks and the designation meant Broad-Ring cylinder 549 cu. in. It was a powerful heavy-duty low-rev gas hog that got 3 mpg max.

Sorry, I got distracted chasing down obscure modern-day trivia. Not.

The Moron Brothers are a hoot. They sell coffee, too.

Bach’s Christmas Oratorio Suite (1734) as performed by Septura. They’re a brass septet from London who don’t know how to dress properly, so turn your head away and listen instead. They are very good.

Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukah to all.
