One of the things I have noticed over the years with these Christmas shows is that I am a great stater of the obvious.
I like to begin shows by telling you it's Christmastime (and THERE...I've made a decision, but you'll have to listen to understand what that means).
So I will do it again with the BEST NEW Christmas song I have heard in the last year!
And other non-informative alerts too...I am a piece of work, lol!
Even though we kept pace with the Beatles and their Christmas Messages from 1963 to 1969, it ain't over with them.
I have a 1964 outtake, and the first thing that jumps out at you is how nervous they are.
Of course, they were very young, and when some engineer plucks you in front of a microphone and tells you to say some things about the past year and Christmas, it can be daunting.
And THAT is what Engineer Ken would occasionally surprise me with, tell me not enough time for a song so just wing it for 2 minutes, lol!
But it's good training for you, and I can be gabby when needed.
From icons to icon next.
A very short, swooning song from the early days of Rock & Roll by Litlle Lambsie Penn (that is correct, lol), to Elvis Presley, about how she wants to spend Christmas with him, and using the titles of many of his songs to make her case.
She is Songdropping!
It is easy to see where I might go after that.
Simply put, an enjoyable chapter with some DIFFERENT Songs Of The Season that you ought to enjoy (hear that, commercial radio?).
