2022 At 78 RPM-Part 44

The last Saturday in October, and I've got another huge batch of Christmas music for you, all pulled from the amazing collection of 78 RPM rips at The Internet Archive. This week sees stuff both old and new from across the entire musical spectrum. There's got to be something in here you'll like if you download and listen. It's all downhill from here to Christmas as I've got enough stuff in the pile to get me through the rest of the year, and there are still two more dumps expected at the Archive. So I'll have plenty to share with you right through to the end. Stay tuned and keep downloading!


And for the curious, I'm back from New Mexico now, and I got snowed on while I was there. It was very light, and it was too warm still for it to stick, but for several hours there was a light mist of snowflakes in the air. A little bit surreal for a Florida boy like me, but nice.
