This Sunday, it’s Christmas Day on RRR. Roy digs deep into his extensive collection of Christmas records for an audio holiday haul. Bessie Smith says “Hooray for Christmas”. NRBQ have a sincere Christmas wish. The Three Wise Men (aka XTC) are extremely thankful for Christmas. Aretha Franklin confesses a liking for kissing by the mistletoe. Tommy Flanagan treats us to an exquisitely jazzy Christmas waltz. Merle Haggard is dreaming of a white Christmas. Etta Jones hopes we all have a merry little Christmas.
A highlight of a three-song trip to the manger is Nina Simone’s stomping rendition of “Children, Go Where I Send You”, taken from her 1959 Colpix LP, “The Amazing Nina Simone”. True to the album’s title, Nina is absolutely amazing.
The Christmas day spin begins this Sunday, December 25th, 2 PM, Mountain, on CKUA. Join Santa Roy for Christmas Day on Roy’s Record Room, the show that repeats the sounding joy.
Roy wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and a real gone 2023.
