Just time for some favorites..and more lost radio treasures

Today I present some favorites...some songs that I planned for playlists in my podcasts but didn't make the shows for one reason or another.

First up....

Louis Philippe-The 13th Day of Christmas

The Arcadians-Write Your Letter

These two songs kind of have a timeless feel to them, or maybe it's just me. And I like how they sound. Louis' track comes from World in Winter and the Arcadians' track comes from Chantons Noël Ghosts of Christmas Past. Both are wonderful compilations.

Which takes us into the topic of letters to Santa, and another song that fits in with that older and timeless style just fine....

Anne Lloyd-When Santa Claus Gets Your Letter

Which takes us back into that "Lost Radio Treasures" territory we visited earlier this month. And that leads me to a track from the 2004 Adventures in Carols compilation posted by our friends over at FaLaLaLaLa.

Living Voices-Be A Santa

One of the finest classic recordings of Christmas music, and a must have in any collection, small or large, is the Rotary Connection's album Peace. From their landmark Christmas album...

Rotary Connection-Christmas Child

While dipping our feet in the radio treasures of the past, here's an oldie and a goodie from Tex Ritter on the I'm Gonna Lasso Santa Claus compilation.

Tex Ritter-Christmas Carols by the Old Corral

There are really so many songs from the "lost radio treasures" era I could share, but I have to save some for the future postings on this blog. But for now I will leave you with this one ...

The Newports-It's Christmas Once Again

And, just for something a little extra...

Don Campau, who contributed a track to the Wayside Waifs CD, hosts a radio program and he put the podcasts up of that program up this past week. It is his holiday episode, though not all the songs he played are Christmas songs. But there are a few Christmas songs to be found here, including a few tracks from my CD. So stream or're gonna find some cool Christmas music and you're also going to find some interesting new music to boot.

Please note that these are being hosted by Don himself, so they will be gone when he decides they will be gone. Get while the getting is good.
