Christmas Materials

Three selections for Christmas...

1 Jim Gaerhart - Clarence The Geoduck (5:53)
This is a holiday promotional 45, both in English and Japanese for the Russell Company - home of the Russell 2000 Index, and obviously made long before the company had billions of bucks. I love it.

2 Tacoma Women's Choir - Ronnie Gave To Me (3:25)
A parody of 12 Days of Christmas, and by the Tacoma (Washington) Women's Choir - recorded at a concert.

3 Al Kelly & Del Sharbutt - An Exclusive Interview With Santa (5:31)
RCA Promo (HO7H-0933) distributed to stations.

And... welcome to your ears to a CD I produced this year, "Previously Unreleased" - featuring Bryan Bowers, Jim Page and Evan Purcell. Recorded at ContactCreate studio in Snohomish county (Washington) Saturday, December 1. A live from the Northwest gift filled with music, chatter, holiday stories, questionable jokes, and good spirits. The best of all the holidays and a happy new year to each of you listening.
