On this edition of StudioTulsa, our last newly recorded program of the year, we tap into the unmistakable holiday cheer that's currently wafting through our offices like so much thick fog in a John Durkee crack-of-dawn weather report. In other words, we sit down with a few of our co-workers here at Public Radio Tulsa to chat about which Christmas songs matter most to them and why. Please note, however, that due to certain music-rebroadcast-rights-related issues, we are unable to offer an online "stream" of this particular show. But, for the record, here's a rundown of who we spoke to...and what we heard:
Steve Clem, Operations Director: "Merry Christmas Darling" by The Carpenters
Frank Christel, Director of Broadcast Services: "Green Chri$tma$" by Stan Freberg
Casey Morgan, Development Director: "Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt (Original 1953 Version, Only!)
John Wooley, Host of Swing on This (Heard Saturdays at 7pm on Public Radio 89.5-1): "Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep)" by Luigi Balletto
Rich Fisher, General Manager of PRT and Host of StudioTulsa: "Winter Wonderland" by Tony Bennett
Cheers, folks. Thanks for listening, and Happy Holidays to all.
