Happy Half Christmas & June 2011 Rudolph Day!

Wow! Can ya hardly believe it! It's Half Christmas for 2011 already! Time's-a-waistin'!

WGN Radio 720 AM in Chicago has two classic Christmas programs from years past for stream or download.

First up is from 1976 (updated from 1969). 'The Christmas Newscast' reports the first Christmas as it might have sounded using modern radio newsgathering techniques. The piece runs 24:18.

Second is 'Letters to Santa with Roy Leonard' that runs 11:10.

AND, I see that Dinsdale Kringle, the proprietor of SWO has hitched a car to the MMC train!

Welcome, Sir! I expect this thread to take off now! You run rings around me but I’m up for the challenge!
Dinsdale Kringle is sharing a 'Christmas Song of the Day' over at his blog.

According to an answered question on FaceBook, the 'American Routes' move will not affect their online audio content. Still wouldn't hurt to give a listen and/or record what is if interest. I have a few in my i-Pod including ALL the Christmas shows!

1998 - http://americanroutes.publicradio.or.../509/christmas

1999 & 2000 - http://americanroutes.publicradio.or...w/468/holidays

2001 & 2002 - http://americanroutes.publicradio.or...christmas-2001

2003 & 2004 - http://americanroutes.publicradio.or.../259/christmas

2005 & 2006 - http://americanroutes.publicradio.or...in-new-orleans

2007 & 2008 - http://americanroutes.publicradio.or...heath-brothers

The only one not available is from 1998. It’s a Christmas show of sorts, especially the second hour - http://americanroutes.publicradio.or...nukah-solstice I’m sure it will be along soon!

The above links include a playlist and listen links for each hour of each two hour show.

Happy Rudolph Day & Merry Christmas in July 2011 !!

Happy Rudolph Day & Merry Christmas in July!

Public Radio International ran a feature in 2009 explaining the soundtracks one hears while shopping during the Christmas season. Think those songs are chosen at random? Click and find out!

Your Holiday Shopping Soundtracks” originally aired on PRI & WNYC’s program ‘The Takeaway’, a morning news program. The piece runs about six minutes and may be streamed or downloaded. Or, you can read about it at the link.

With his second to none (sorry ElfBot & MCR) listings & reviews of new Christmas albums, Stubby at Stubby's House of Christmas features an area of artists offering free downloads of Christmas tunes.

Check him out. And if you comment or contact Stubby, tell him RadioJonD sent you! Did you know that Scarlett Johansson sings a duet with the late Dean Martin on a September 20, 2011 reissue of his "My Kind of Christmas" album?
