bongobells is another great Christmas music sharity site. This week there are a couple of cool things happening over there. First, bongolong puts together compilations and I love it when someone takes the time to put together something like that. Pictured at the left is the new comp which features 21 versions of Sleigh Ride. Now, I realize that I refer to a lot of songs as being one of my favorites, but Sleigh Ride is one of my favorites. bogolong did not include a couple of versions that I really enjoy so I will post them here for you to listen to. The Mel Torme includes all that crazy scat stuff and the voice of Andy Williams, as President Reagan said, is a national treasure. The second cool thing happening at bongobells is The Cinnamon Bear! That's what Christmas entertainment is all about. Families used to gather around the radio to listen to a special show that had a continuing story from Thanksgiving right up till Christmas. Here's a link to the Cinnamon Bear page at Radio Archives so you can read more if you like.
