2023-12-IHTSB-December-24 Special-Christmas-Edition.

Merry Christmas! Today we celebrate the holiday season with favourite songs from recordings made between the 1930s and 1960s. We are joined by Bing Crosby, the performer perhaps most associated with this time of year, who brings us some lovely Christmas carols and the Irving Berlin classic, “White Christmas”. Buddy Clark takes us on a “Dreamer’s Holiday”, and we visit Christmas in Harlem with Louis Armstrong. We hear Nat King Cole with the classic Christmas Song, another seasonal favourite. And we listen to Frank Sinatra with another lovely version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”.

Happy Holidays, and enjoy some lovely Christmas music!
