Who are the modern Legends of Christmas?

We're so anxious to produce a new podcast from the new studios of Merry Christmas Radio that we're mulling over the idea of producing a podcast this week on the "Modern Legends of Christmas". Jimmy Stewart would be one candidate we'd look at as a modern Christmas legend.

Who might be another individual (or group) that you could think about? Whose story do you want to hear?

I know you're all thinking JayIsh...or RadioJonD...or perhaps even Carl or Binger...

But who else?

We could do this this week!

Jeff

Not sure if they've reached legendary status, but maybe the story of Straight No Chaser, the group that went viral because of their YouTube video of "The 12 Days of Christmas," which earned them a contract with Atlantic, after which they produced two Christmas albums and appeared across the country in tours and personal appearances.

If musical groups can be mentioned, like MerryCarey suggested, I was thinking Trans Siberian Orchestra?

Also, Bob Hope for all his Christmas shows he did for the troops?

I will have to put my thinking cap on to see who else I can come up with.

maybe You can find something about how Germans came to love American and English Christmas songs by listening to AFN (American Forces Network)....that btw is also the way Rock n Roll swapped over the ocean so quickly.....afn
