First, a programming note.
When I started writing this blog I couldn’t wait for Christmas so that I could present one of my ultimate fave-rave Comics Tunes, “Deck Us All With Boston Charlie,” which brings together my favorite comic strip (Pogo) and my favorite jazz group, Lambert Hendricks & Ross. I even pledged to make it an annual Christmas tradition. However, I was thinking in terms of radio and television, where repeating a Christmas special every year makes sense. On the Wonderful Worldwide Web, it’s unnecessary to repeat anything, since you can always go back in the archives and relive Christmases past. I’ve made it easy for you. Previous Christmas presentations are here and here.
That’s it for old business, now on to new business.
One of the other great Christmas songs has a connection with one of my other favorite comic strips. I’m referring to “Snoopy vs. The Red Baron” and Peanuts, of course. That original LP by The Royal Guardsmen was the second album I ever bought, and I still have it.
This Christmas I’d like to present the follow-up record, “Snoopy’s Christmas.” It’s both pro-peace and anti-violence, and that’s a positive Christmas message, isn’t it?
El Capitan pointed out earlier this year that you can visit the Royal Guardsmen’s Facebook page and I encourage you to do so by clicking here.
