Nothing for Chanukah

My apologies to those of you who are chosen, but I'm afraid I have nothing to share for Chanukah this year. Even though it's usually not a very popular share, I always like to share out a little something for those who celebrate a different holiday this time of year. (Yes, I know there are yet more holidays this time of year, but if you think Chanukah music is hard to find, try to find a Merry Tet song, and Kwanza didn't come along until after the records I like to share here, and Festivus is even newer...) Anyhow, I wasn't able to find anything in The Internet Archive that I thought was related to the Eight Crazy Nights, though your mileage may vary. (And yes, I spelled it every way I could find, and only got a hit for something that I think I've already shared around these parts.) As a bit of consolation, here's a link to the Chanukah In August from earlier this year, and a post from last year that's similar to this one, it has links to a lot of older Chanukah shares. Maybe next year will be better.


PS-If you find something in the Archive, lemme know!

Your efforts are appreciated; believe me, I know how hard it is to find these records. There doesn't seem to be anything in the 78 archive, but there are a few among the albums.

Yes, sadly it is taking a very long time for the music of Festivus to become as popular as it should be. Ah, the memories--the aluminum pole, the airing of grievances, the feats of strength, and of course the vast library of Festivus tunes...Say it with me: FESTIVUS FOR THE REST OF US!!

Thanks for the comments, guys! Keep those cards and letters coming!

Alas for 2020, but the archives (by which I mean my own copies from your posts) yielded a nice assortment of seasonal content that I shared with one of the partners at Michelle's (the missus) company. He told me that he really appreciated it, that they had it playing for their family's seasonal gathering this year.
Along those same lines, after you posted it a few years ago, I shared the Greek Christmas album with the proprietors of the Athens Restaurant (www.athensgreekrestaurant.com/). It was much appreciated. I've not paid for dessert there since then. I guess I owe you some baklava.

Free dessert, now that is good news!! :)
