Twas the month before christmas...and all around the jetsam.....


...there must be a few more christmas things to post.....yeah sure....I bet'sam.

Yeah well, tis the season to get on the holiday bandwagon like everyone else...Christmas, holidays I really don't care what the hell you call it, just don't call me late for turkey with all the trimmings this holiday season, which, I confess is always fun for the whole family.


There...all the cliche's I can think of coming out with...for now anyway.


I dug up a few things, largely christmas related but mixed in with a few other events for good measure, and why only share a couple cuts from a production album? Just makes more sense to post the entire disc.



First off, bandleader Henry Jerome, who cut more then a few Lang Worth transcriptions in his day, apparently cut a countdown to christmas disc for LW likely in the 1950s. He was likely well known enough to the audience to actually do this countdown disc, but the wiki doesn't say much. Check it out HERE if you are curious. In any event, it's still a fun countdown to christmas with a couple generic messages mixed in for good measure. Fun dated mid 20th century nostalgia!

This disc from the Pepper Library, likely dated early 1970s is kind of fun, for a couple cuts in particular on side two, The after christmas blues and the safety belt PSA's are delightfully dated and campy for the era, back when seat belts were actually an option when you bought a car and if you decided to use them. Don't get me wrong though, side one has fun jingles that are sort of like being at the bottom you're look to climb looking up....trying to get people to buy in january after breaking people's bank accounts over christmas. A monumental task in itself.

Finally, this disc has a variety of year round holiday jingles with a few christmas focused. Just think, you can use this one year around...for what? I don't know, I just post em, you figure out what you want to do with them. The Santa Claus Lane jingle in particular has a bit of a Rankin Bass christmas feel to it....I alway think Burl Ives as a snowman is about to jump in and sing!

  2. Is it just me or does Henry Jerome sound a bit like Christopher Walken?
