Week of December 15th, 2013 to December 21st, 2013
This week’s show has certainly got me in the mood for Christmas. When I looked over the playlist for this week’s show, I was a bit of a surprise with the number of B sides of classic Christmas songs I played. If you have any of them in your own collection, I am sure it was great to hear Brenda Lee’s Papa Noel, the flip side of Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree. And be sure to check your own 45 of Nothing But A Heartache by The Flirtations; you may have the pressing with Christmas Time Is Here Again on the B side. We even went way back to 1949 for If It Doesn’t Snow On Christmas Day by the Singing Cowboy, Gene Autry, the B side of the original Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. There were others, but I don’t want to give away every song I played. You can check out the Playlist for yourself as you listen to this week’s show on the Archive.
Be sure to join me for the 17th Annual Christmas Special next Sunday, December 22nd starting at 6 pm Pacific. This is a show you won’t want to miss. And it’s so family friendly, you’ll want to listen to it with your family and friends during the Christmas holiday period, available on the Archive.
The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing a wonderful Christmas song by Paul Evans, who wrote to me to send his best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. When he appeared on the show many years ago, Treasure Island Oldies was his first ever interview for an Internet based radio show and he is so pleased to see how long the show has lasted and continues to grow. I’m pleased to play Santa’s Stuck Up In The Chimney by Paul Evans. It’s our Christmas Song of the Week. Enjoy!
Please note that Voice Your Choice will return for a new season on January 12th, 2014. And the first artist of the year will be Gene McDaniels. You can go to the Voice Your Choice page at any time to castyour vote for either A Hundred Pounds Of Clay or Tower Of Strength. The winning song will be played on the January 12th show.
If you have a birthday coming up, please be sure to let me know. Send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll play Birthday by The Beatles to help celebrate your special day.
Here’s the Rock and Roll News for the week of December 15th.
Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1959.
I hope you have a good week and don’t get too tired finishing off your Christmas shopping.
See you next week for the 17th Annual Christmas Special.
Bye for now.
