2022 At 78 RPM-Part 25

It's week 25, and that means we're really, really close to the halfway point. Thanks to everyone who's stuck with us this first half of the year, I've really appreciated all of your encouragement. We're also close to our annual Christmas In July celebration, so you've got that to look forward to. It promises to be a good month, though probably not business as usual.  But I'm getting ahead of myself, first I've got to share 25 more great Christmas sides from 78 RPM shellac records courtesy of the Internet Archive. And today it's a pile of multi-part performances. There are some stories in here, and some songs in two parts. Unfortunately, there's also a six part story for which I only have four of the sides. But that's an improvement over last year when I only had two of the sides. I didn't even realize at the time that I was missing all the other sides because I didn't listen closely enough to realize the story didn't end after parts 1 & 2. But now you get parts 5 & 6, so if anyone has the missing sides, please let me know! I think everything else is complete. Download and enjoy!

And in other news, the Internet Archive finally started a 78 dump yesterday after completely skipping May. No clue yet if this one will be twice as large, or if they spent the extra month fixing the bad rips from April. Either way, I'm just glad to have them back at it.

Quite a few for the kiddies in this collection, I see. You are young at heart (and in comparison to me, for that matter).

I saw the name Daws Butler on the "Talking Komics Sleepy Santa" record and expected to hear Huckleberry Hound, but the polar bear had a different voice, the one he used as the unbelieving guy (can't recall the name just now) in the "Christmas Dragnet" record by Stan Freberg.

Thanks for the comments, guys!

Buster-Yes, there are some kiddie records in here, and a distinct lack of songs, but I needed to get some of these sets out of the pile and I figured now was a good time to do it. Should be more music and songs next week, though it'll probably still be kiddie oriented. :)

Jeepster-I liked how Daws and Marian switched lead positions on the two sides. :) And some folks call them green onions, but they're really scallions...

What about the Easter Bunny? :-)
