It’s a snow day this coming Sunday on Roy’s Record Room. You’ll hear an eclectic batch of wintery sides about sleigh rides, snowmobiles, ski trails, sub-zero temperatures, and, yes, SONGS ABOUT snow. Roy plays vinyl and shellac from Stompin’ Tom Connors, Jesse Winchester, Etta Jones, the Cocteau Twins, Big Maceo with Tampa Red, Julie London, and more.
A cool highlight is an ancient red vinyl RCA Victor 45 circa 1949. Arthur Fiedler conducts the Boston Pops Orchestra for the very first recording of a Holiday classic, “Sleigh Ride”. When Roy picked up this single back in 2010, the original mono recording had been out of print for decades. Lean in. Pick up on the excellent fidelity of this 1949 version of “Sleigh Ride’”.
The spin begins this Sunday, December 10th, 2 PM, Mountain. Pour yourself a cup of warm and dial in for a Snow Day on Roooy’s Record Room, the show that repeats the sounding joy.
Through the years, Roy has amassed a huge collection of Christmas vinyl and shellac. For the December 17th RRR, he’ll pull out a batch of Christmas 78s from the crates. Then, on December 24th, it’ll be Christmas Eve Day on Triple-R Radio. Mark your calendars so you can tune in to these fun Holiday shows.
