Welcome to our newest member, ESullivan
Most of the postings found herein are of a Seasonal Musical Kind. Playlists from a show called "Mistletoe Mix" on Kringle Radio & Merry Christmas Radio will be found as well as general musings of lyrical & melodically significance as applicable to Christmas music and the enjoyment thereof.

However, the proverbial right for straying from the musical notes and verse is respectfully hereby instated to include the wanderings therefrom a mind that may every now and again think of something else of which to set to prose.

Welcome! Pull up an earphone or speaker and enjoy!

Leslie 'Uggams' Crayne - Two Sides

Posted 12-08-2009 at 01:10 PM by RadioJonD (Tinseled Musings from a Yule Tuned Mind)

I've got a couple of out of print (oop) vinyl records for share at www.FaLaLaLaLa.com

Both are for a limited time, so I thought I would post them here are well.

Second: http://www.falalalala.com/fireside/i...14583#msg14583

Leslie Uggams has enjoyed a career as a singer, actress, and variety show host spanning fifty years! As I understand, Uggams was the nickname for young Leslie who would adopt it over her given surname, Crayne. By age ten, Leslie ‘Uggams’ Crayne was already in the studio cutting sides for the M-G-M label.

Offered for your Yuletide entertainment pleasure is the A & B side of M-G-M single K11626 by ‘Uggams’ with Orchestra conducted by Fred Norman. (Yep, the same Fred Norman who worked with Dinah Washington among others) taken from a 45 pressing. “Missus Santa Claus” & “My Stocking Is Empty” were released for the season in 1953 on 78 rpm & 45 rpm records.

Those of us growing up in the Sixties and Seventies (and way before) will remember transcription broadcasts on radio. One particular series was for the promotion of Savings Bonds and is the subject of this share. My dad would purchase a bond each per pay period for my brother and me for many years!

Transcription records were recorded, pressed, and sent to participating radio stations for on air broadcast. As such, the complete program runs as one track on the LP. Often, these LPs were one sided as this share is.

This LP was picked up at a flea market. The seller had bought a rather large radio station collection of records and was selling them in his space. ...

Starting & Adding to Your Christmas Music Library - A Primer

Posted 07-28-2009 at 11:30 AM by RadioJonD (Tinseled Musings from a Yule Tuned Mind)

When building a Christmas Music Library a few fundamentals are in order.

For liturgical Christmas fair, choose a series such as Collectibles ‘Ultimate Christmas’, ‘Readers Digest’, ‘Time Life Treasury of Christmas’ or ‘Now That’s What I Call Christmas!’ That would allow you to build a solid traditional base. The ‘Now’ series will also include a good mix of recent artists and tunes. Avoid buying more than one of these types of packages, as you will begin to duplicate and waste money rather quickly.

Rhino Records Christmas CDs should seriously be considered to add some of the forgotten classics that have reclaimed over the years. Many styles and many genres have been explored. Their ‘Hillbilly Holiday’ CD issue has been long out of print and contains tunes that have never since been on CD. Like Rhino, the Capitol Ultra Lounge Christmas Cocktails CDs have reclaimed forgotten sounds! Hip-O Records ‘Yule B’ Swingin’’ & ‘Yule B’ Swingin’ Too’ should also be considered....

Radio: It Is What It Is, But Ain't What It Was.

Two things yesterday caused me to wax the nostalgic broadcast radio surfboard.

First, Sdkluger posted a thread asking about an item he heard on the radio around Christmas when he was growing up. Of course I started digging in my “usual spots” to locate the answer (I’m still working on it).

Second, I was digging around on FaceBook and found a Disc Jockey (Dee-Jay) from back in my teen day named John “Records” Landecker and one from my early adulthood called Slats. When I listened to John in the seventies, he broadcast on 89 WLS-AM out of Chicago. Does anybody else remember his famous “Boogie Checks?” John would take as many phone calls as he could in an allotted amount of time of about one to three minutes. Slats was a high energy dude on KDF out of Nashville, Tennessee. You never knew what was about to happen next! (It's crazy cool that both accepted my FaceBook friend request!)

Chances are, no one here under forty years of age will...
