Folks that we've researched and profiled before in unique offerings here on MMC include Charles Dickens, Clement Clark Moore, and George Frederick Handel.

Some that we're working on right now include Norman Rockwell, Thomas Nast and Bing Crosby.

Who else would you include or want to see on that list?

When you think about movies, music, books and history it is very easy to think of people of influence.
I like all the choices so far.
Can I add to that Francis Pharcellus Church, the newspaper man who wrote the famous response to Virginia's question "Is there a Santa Claus"?

What about, Gene Autry, for singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer? I find it an interesting story that Bing Crosby turned it down and how Gene Autry decided to sing it.

Also the story of, Rudolph the Reindeer, itself and how it started out as a promotional book for Montgomery Ward and he is now legendary!

I am really behind on the podcast. I need to catch up!

My daughter is on vacation next week so I won't have the kids. Maybe I will have time to listen to them.
