HOLIDAY MUSIC OF THE 50S AND 60S with John Clark
Tuesday, December 22, 2020
Sit back and enjoy a one-hour program of familiar and charished holiday songs from the 1950s and 1960s presented by John Clark. You'll hear the stories behind "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" by Broadway composer Meredith Willson (The Music Man) and Willie Nelson's "Pretty Paper." Did you know that the prolific Johnny Marks had three hits during these years?: "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" (Brenda Lee), "A Holly Jolly Christmas" (Burl Ives) and "Run Rudolph Run" (Chuck Berry). And there were novelty Christmas songs galore, like The Chipmunks' Song, "I'm Gettin' Nuttin' for Christmas." This event is free of charge and is sponsored by Harvey's Treasure Chest Gift Shop. Mark your calendars and be sure to call the COA beginning Tuesday, December 1st to register to receive your Zoom invitation. (The COA Staff is happy to help if you are new to Zoom.) 978 318 3020
