A slice of my childhood

There were just a few Christmas music staples in our home,and this was my dad's absolute favorite! When I was married and moved away, he taped it (remember cassette tapes?) so that I would be able to listen to it at Christmastime. Several of Dad's other favorites are no longer available, but are still on cassettes, waiting for me to digitally record them.

It will bring the Christmas spirit into your home!
