This week, Roy begins his annual dive into his extensive collection of seasonal 78s, 45s. LPs, and CDs for a snow day on RRR. Willie P. Bennett deals with drifting snow. On “Winter Time Blues”, Big Maceo’s overcoat is in pawn and he hasn’t got a dime. Slim & Slam are getting kind of chilly. Snow is cold but love can be bold, on Bob Dylan’s “Winterlude”. Bill Monroe finds his true love by tracing her footprints in the snow. Sarah Vaughan and her sweetie are snowbound. Connie Francis is going to be warm this winter. On the other hand, Bing Crosby is forecasting a cold, cold winter.
In one of the many Snow Day highlights, Stompin Tom Connors highly approves of wintertime Ski-doo activities on “The Snowmobile Song”. In Tom’s opinion, there ain’t no deal like a snowmobile. As well, life can be real on a snowmobile.
The wintry spin begins this Sunday, December 11th, 2 PM, Mountain, on CKUA. Tune in for A Snow Day on Roy’s Record Room, the show that repeats the sounding joy.
