Rick Goldschmidt returns to “Radio Once More”

Christmas with Rick G-2020

Helen and I kicked off December with an extra special “Woo-Hoo Extra” on “Radio Once More”.  We welcomed back to “Radio Once More” author and official historian/biographer of Rankin/Bass productions, Rick Goldschmidt.  We had another great Rankin/Bass themed conversation with Rick.  Rick shared some interesting information about the recent auction where a Santa Claus and Rudolph set of original puppets were auctioned off.

Rick also discussed that in addition to his www.MiserBros.com web site, he also has a Miser Bros store on Etsy

We then discussed the importance of the music to many of the classic Rankin/Bass Christmas productions from the 1960’s – 1970’s.  During this discussion, we played complete songs from “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (1964), “Frosty the Snowman” (1969), “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” (1970), and “The Year Without a Santa Claus” (1974)
