Mondays Music Moves Me It's that special time of year

Sorry for the delay, but had things that came up.  This is my first posting for music not just for Christmas, but this special time of year.

To start off, I am using what was one of the shortest radio shows of the 1930's and 40's Moonlight Serenade featuring the music of Glenn Miller.  This is different, so I hope you enjoy this broadcast from December 24th 1941.

And now for something completely different,  The Maccabeats Burn A Hanukkah song
Now something different again.  For many this is a Pagan time, a time of celebrating the cycle of nature, of the Green man, a time of Yule.

And now Julie Andrews singing a classic Christmas song.  Silent Night.

We have come full circle, starting with Glenn Miller and his orchestra doing a popular tune and additional Big Band music from December 1941 we had some Jewish music, then Pagan music to celebrate Yule and then a traditional Christmas song by one of the best singers of all time

I  hope all of you enjoyed this first musical trek for music of the season.  Til next week.
