For The Captain

I'm rushing to get this up by seven this evening, and I see I'm a little late.  This record was a gift from one of my online Christmas friends, CaptOT, and this evening he's hosting a Christmas program on public radio in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  It started at 7, and I'm listening to it now.  You can listen, too, if you click here.  He's doing it again on Wednesday, so if you read this later, you can listen to it then.  Go now!  Anyhow, the record in question is by Richard Ellsasser, and the Captain sent it to me because I had shared out another LP by Ellsasser and I didn't have this one.  So I recorded it and I'm sharing it with you in honor of the Captain being on the radio.  Here's the download, now go listen to CaptOT.  This is Richard Ellsasser-An Old-Fashioned Christmas (MGM E3475, Mono, 1956).

1. Bethlehem
2. Coventry Carol
3. I Saw Three Ships
4. Christmas Eve
5. Patapan
6. What Child Is This? (Greensleeves)
7. In Dulci Jubilo
8. While Shepherds Watched
9. The Holly And The Ivy
10. Good Christian Men, Rejoice
11. Vieni, Emanuel
12. A Virgin Unspotted
13. Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming
14. My Dancing Day

Sounds good, Captain!

Thanks Ernie - man, I'm still wired from the show!

Remember, the Wednesday show is completely different from the Monday show - enjoy the veal and don't forget to tip your waitress!
