Christmas Music Season

Posted in:

There have been some great shows of Christmas music on WWOZ this week. Really well thought out shows with great music. Actually, there have been too many great shows of Christmas music. We've inadvertently over-saturated the aether with what should be a novelty.

We've gotta regularly listen to each other's shows and check each other's playlists.

Ms. Irma Thomas

So we're sitting here in Rio de Janeiro, listening to Irma Thomas' cracking live show and I get knocked off my chair when I here her sing "Sam & Roz are Comin' to Town".

This was a song originally printed in "Mad Magazine" in the late 1960s and I thought I was the only one on earth who had memorized the words to that one! I'm glad to know I'm not the only loon. :D

But given that I don't know who the original author of the song was - and I doubt Irma does either - does this mean that "Sam & Roz" is now a bonafide folk song?

Happy northern hemisphere winter solstice consumption celebration, everyone! :D
