And when we say old time Christmas songs we mean music from a long time ago as the majority of these fine vintages are from many decades ago. Plenty of originals on show too so this playlist may well feel like a voyage of discovery in your very own delorean. Brooklyn’s the Cashmeres just fizzle along on their 1960 single ‘I Believe In St. Nick’ (St. Nick being Santa Claus don’t you know) which came out on a 45prm single because that was the media format of choice back then. Sounding even older (although it was only released 3 years earlier) is Sammy Kaye & His Orchestra’s ‘Winter Wonderland’ which came out on his warm hearted ‘I Want To Wish You A Merry Christmas’. And that is the general feeling you get with these homespun gems from yesteryear. What other emotion rather than naked joy could be forthcoming when the doo-wop glory of the Dynamics ‘Christmas Plea’ trips out from our speakers. Old time Christmas songs are just the gift that keeps on giving.
