Afterglow rings in the holidays this week with music from Billy Eckstine, Frank Sinatra, Lou Rawls, Julie London, Peggy Lee, and more. We’ll also hear:
- The story of how “The Christmas Song” came to be written
- The inspiration for “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day,” taken from the work of a great American poet
- Some late-1940s holiday radio broadcasts
- A little-known Christmas original by Indiana bandleader and composer Al Cobine
Happy holidays to radio listeners everywhere!
