  • Local CT morning DJ on KC101, "Hammerhead's" Christmas record. 'Hozay Smith' is being interviewed by the Hammerhead about seeing George Steinbrenner (though he's never mentioned by name) on Santa's lap at Macy's asking for Reggie Jackson for Christmas. Reggie had signed a contract with the Angels and Steinbrenner wanted him back. The single was sold at area 7-11 stores and all profits went to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Hammerhead: Hozay, have you finished all your Christmas shopping?

    Hozay: It's all done, Hammerhead. All my gifts are bought, wrapped and under the tree, so don't step on them.

    Hammerhead: And have you told Santa Claus what you'd like this year?

    Hozay: Uh, well, er, um...I never got to see him.

    Hammerhead: How come?

    Hozay: I was standing in line at Macy's Department store at 9 o'clock in the morning to see Santa Claus to present my Christmas list. In front of me stood a gentleman wearing a pinstripe suit; temples of grey in his hair and a button his lapel that said "Don't ask me about Billy!"

    Well, you can imagine my surprise when before my very eyes, he sat down upon Santa Claus' lap! And as he began to speak, I thought I saw a little tear in his eye. So I leaned a little closer so I could overhear. Because I had just cleaned my ears that morning, there was no mistaking what I heard him say.

    Hammerhead: You heard him say something.

    Hozay: That's right. With these ears, left and right respectively. Hard to believe but true!...

    Oh, please send me Reggie for Christmas
    I'll manage to keep him this time
    I won't let anyone 'nettle' him
    I promise he'll never be fined
    If you send me Reggie for Christmas
    I promise I won't interfere
    Please send me Reggie for Christmas
    And maybe we'll win it next year

    Well Santa was sympathetic, but he'd have to consult with his agent and he just couldn't promise much. As this dejected man walked away, I suddenly recognized him from television. I remembered him always saying, "You're hired! You're fired! You're hired! You're fired!" I felt really badly for the guy and wanted to cheer him up, so I gave up my place in line and caught up with him. And I said, "Gee sir, you still have the best baseball team in New the American League."

    Hammerhead: You didn't really say that, didja?

    Hozay: Sure I did, Hammerhead.

    Hammerhead: Oh, Jeez! Then what happened?

    Hozay: I told him - I didn't mean to dent his pride but that his goose was cooked, ha ha, and Reggie liked sunny California anyway! And as he climbed into his limousine and he was chauffeured out of sight, I could still hear his words wishing for Reggie tonight.

    Please send me Reggie for Christmas
    I'll manage to keep him this time
    I won't let anyone 'nettle' him
    I promise he'll never be fined
    If you send me Reggie for Christmas
    I promise I won't interfere
    Please send me Reggie for Christmas
    Maybe we'll win it next year

    The Big Apple sure doesn't crunch
    He's eating his own words for lunch, ha ha ha ha ha!
    Please send me Reggie for Christmas
    We sure need his October punch

    Hammerhead: Ow!

    Hozay: Sorry, Hammerhead

    Hammerhead: Right in the face!

    Hozay: I'm sorry!

    Hammerhead: Jeez. What have you got in your pocket?

    Hozay: Oh, these are my baseball cards.. lets see. Nettles, Cerrone, Randolph... What do I do with these?

    Hammerhead: What's that?

    Hozay: What do I do with... Bob Lemon, Gene Michael, Billy Martin?

    Hammerhead: Well, don't worry. Hang onto 'em. They'll be back sooner or later.

    Hozay: It's just like Yogi says- "It ain't over till it's over!" Ha ha..
