Welcome to our newest member, Amy_theexplorer
Most of the postings found herein are of a Seasonal Musical Kind. Playlists from a show called "Mistletoe Mix" on Kringle Radio & Merry Christmas Radio will be found as well as general musings of lyrical & melodically significance as applicable to Christmas music and the enjoyment thereof.

However, the proverbial right for straying from the musical notes and verse is respectfully hereby instated to include the wanderings therefrom a mind that may every now and again think of something else of which to set to prose.

Welcome! Pull up an earphone or speaker and enjoy!

I've got a couple of out of print (oop) vinyl records for share at

Both are for a limited time, so I thought I would post them here are well.


Those of us growing up in the Sixties and Seventies (and way before) will remember transcription broadcasts on radio. One particular series was for the promotion of Savings Bonds and is the subject of this share. My dad would purchase a bond each per pay period for my brother and me for many years!

Transcription records were recorded, pressed, and sent to participating radio stations for on air broadcast. As such, the complete program runs as one track on the LP. Often, these LPs were one sided as this share is.

This LP was picked up at a flea market. The seller had bought a rather large radio station collection of records and was selling them in his space. As previously stated, the LP originally ran as one continuous track for broadcast. It was only in a white paper sleeve and is “Guest Star Show of the Month” No. 12 (more below).

For the share, I’m offering two versions. I’ve taken the liberty of dividing the material into seventeen tracks as well as the liturgical “audio cleaning” of the record. Some of the breaks may not be a very smooth transition, but will not be noticed when the work is played as a whole. Should you burn to a CD, remember to choose the “no gap” feature before proceeding. Also, included for the purists among us, is a raw LP transfer sans cleaning and without breaks.

Should anyone wish to have a custom edit of any particular piece, shoot me a pm/email and I’ll see what I can do.

Since this show is only intended for selling U.S. Savings Bonds, and in compliance with restrictions listed below, “Buy U.S. Savings Bonds!”

I’ll let the LP label explain the rest:
