2022 At 78 RPM-Part 17

Nothing too memorable about part 17 of anything, I'm afraid. Just another week of great Christmas music towards my goal of 52 weeks. I think we're making good progress. The Internet Archive is a pretty deep well of music, and they just keep adding to it. The recently dropped pile for April was almost as good as last months big dump, so I've got plenty to keep me going for a while. I hope you're all still enjoying the music. I'm hoping to get through my weekend this time without so much drama as last week, but you never know. Wish me luck. Here's a link to the music, and you can check out the label scans to see what I have for you. Another twenty tracks of Christmas goodness, that's all you really need to know. Enjoy!

2022 At 78 RPM-Part 16

Hey gang! I'm back! Only missed a day or so due to some iffy health issues, but I'm all clear and back on the case. Now I can post the stuff I had almost ready to go for Saturday. Hardly seems like the thing I should be doing first thing after getting out of the hospital, but it's been on my mind ever since I went in. This week is another selection of great Christmas music from old 78s, a little bit of this, a little bit of that. There's always something new to discover, and this week is no exception. Thanks for all your messages of support during my brief absence, they were much appreciated!
