Christmas Day on RRR

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.
