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.
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).
Here is the entire conversation with Rick Goldschmidt on “Radio Once More”.
Again, a big thanks to Rick Goldschmidt for again appearing on ‘Radio Once More’. You can visit Rick’s web site at MiserBros.com. Thanks for stopping by the ‘Holmsey Blog’ and…….Merry Christmas….Woo-Hoo!!!!!!!!
