05-Christmas On The Range

 

Another day, another short set of themed Christmas shellac, courtesy of The Internet Archive! Today it's Christmas on the range, songs that take you back to that old West that once existed, not in real life, but on the silver screen and the boob tube of the 1950's. Kids back then didn't want a Red Ryder BB gun for no reason, it was to be like their heroes on the big and small screens. And that rolled over into the Christmas music of the era. Note that it wasn't only country & western artists that were jumping on this bandwagon. Dick Haymes probably never rode a horse in his life, and I think these particular Hill Billies came from England.  I've got a small selection here, but it's all good music, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
