Late Night Pick of the Night: Black Keys, GWAR reviews "War Horse", RIP Ralph McDonald, More free Xmas mashups

Tonight's Late Night Pick of the Night is a repeat of The Black Keys on The Colbert Report.  Colbert is on at 11:30 PM on Comedy Central, then rebroadcast throughout the next day.

GWAR is now branching out to do movie reviews.  Here Oderus Urungus and Balsac the Jaws of Death review the new Steven Spielberg movie "War Horse".

Songwriter ("Just the Two of Us", "Where is the Love?") and percussionist Ralph MacDonald has passed away at the age of 67.  Read his obit HERE.  This guy played on a whole lot of major albums in the 70s, including "Saturday Night Fever", Bowie's "Young Americans", and with George Benson, Jimmy Buffett, Harry Belafonte, Bee Gees, Billy Joel and many others.  Read his full discography HERE and prepare to be impressed.  As far as solo work, he is probably best known for "Calypso Breakdown" from "Saturday Night Fever"


Finally, Juan Rapido of Radio Valencia in San Francisco has turned me onto some more Christmas mashups.  HERE is a link to dj BC's "Santastic" series.
