Welcome to my Xmas 2012 show…..today, I took the audience on a Santa Sleigh Ride back to the past and explored the Xmas of my youth…1960-1970. At my house in St. Paul, we always had the music going and Xmas Day was no exception. Sure, we enjoyed a few actual Xmas songs but back in those days, the songs weren’t as cool as they are now. So we had to make our own cool Yule. And we did it by partying to the sounds of the day…..see play list below.
Holiday and seasonal music today, including songs by Jimmy McGriff, Tony Bennett, Connie Evingson, Carla Bley, Pony Poindexter, Ellis Marsalis, and more. A special segment for toy trains at Christmas, with a brief number from NRBQ, and songs by Dan Hicks, and Susan Arioli. Finally, the 45 of the week: If I were a Bell, by Miles Davis on Prestige.
