In response to Brian's comment, I use an EXCELLENT on-line disc dating resource which you can find here...

This is a FREE resource but I have contributed $ of my own free will to keep this site up to date and just UP for all of us collectors and 78 enthusiasts.

a truly special show, like no modern Christmas show. imagine, one of The Happiness Boys being Santa for a night. delightful. and, Oh Holy Night, aka Song of Christmas, is one of my favorite Christmas songs. i only wish i had the kind of voice you need, in order to sing it properly. please keep the good old songs coming.

This was a truly great special .I must say one of the very best I have ever heard via the older Christmas songs. Thank you for a show that was well produced.
