Wunderful, Wunderful, It's Time For Christmas!

A One and a Two and a Three . . . Pop Fizz!

It's time for Christmas with Lawrence Welk. We plan to choose some excerpts from the 1969 Reader's Digest four record set, Christmas with Lawrence Welk.

Our first choice is The Christmas Song. This stereo recording features Myron Floren Mr. Welk's featured accordionist. If you're familiar with the old mono Coral label arrangement, you'll love this stereo version.

Pop the bottle and enjoy some of the traditional style of Lawrence Welk!
The selection is found in The Sample Box (left banner).

Time for Halloween

At this time of year, Halloween brings back some interesting memories. How many of us remember The Munster's? Perhaps the theme song might bring the memories back to vivid life?

Grab 'em while you can!

Our file sharing service will expire on 9/24/09 without renewal. We will be relying on our Sample Box for future postings.

The decision has been due to expense. It will limit the capability of sharing full length albums. We'll be taking our Favorite Picks from future albums and sharing them on the Sample Box.

Stay tuned! The summer was very short and busy. We look forward to the upcoming holidays with some favorite tunes..

Summer's End

We were going to share two albums with you for the Summer End post. After investigating their availablity and respect to copywrite laws, we are only allowed to post their covers and offer links to purchase them on your own.

We'll be out of commission for a couple of weeks that includes the Labor Day holiday while friends will be visiting. We're bound to be listening to these fine recordings:

Al Albert's Summer Sing-a-long. You may recognize this artist name from as the lead to the Four Aces. This album is a huge favorite to the southern NJ shore area. As we might be traveling to Cape May, we might just pop on Al and his hit, "On the Way to Cape May".

As friends are visiting, we'll probably break-out one of the greatest duet teams of the late 70's, Johnny Mathis and Denice Williams. Released in 1978, That's What Friends are For. To our friends all over, have a great Summer's End.
