I was already very pleased with GetTV's Monday night schedule of classic variety shows, including The Judy Garland Show and The Merv Griffin Show, with a rotating schedule of other series and one-shot specials.  The addition of the Christmas specials makes me very happy.

Thank you for letting us know about this release, RareChristmasMusicLover.  I probably wouldn't have heard about it before it eventually sold out, but was able to jump on it the day that it became available on the site, and received mine yesterday.

I had also posted in the general thread about online Christmas radio stations:

When you do a Google search, the preview text paragraph starts out with:

"I have recently received a letter from a lawyer at soundexchange that we may be

in violation of copyright licensing. I have been forced to shut"

and gets cut off there. The Twitter page for "ChristmasVinyl" does seem to be gone, as well.

'Beautiful Christmas' (different from the 'Beautiful Christmas Music' station previously mentioned) on Live365 isn't programmed year-round, but is back for the holiday season.

"then it would stop and go to Music Choice Sounds of The Seasons channel
433 which at midnight stopped playing Christmas music this morning"

Part of me actually hoped that they would extend the Christmas music on "Sounds of the Season" longer than just to the Feast of the Epiphany, going to Valentine's Day, at least.  This was my first holiday season with Music Choice, and I appreciated the 2+ months of Christmas music on that channel, and the much-shorter period that they gave us of holiday music on the Easy Listening channel.

We first got AntennaTV when we switched over to Verizon FIOS in October, and I love it.  I can't believe how many times a day I end up watching something on there, especially The George Burns & Gracie Allen Show, and The Jack Benny Program as you mentioned, as well as Bachelor Father, Father Knows Best, Hazel, and Maude, none of which I've seen locally in syndication in quite some time.

Frank, Toyland does appear on Happy Holidays: I Love the Winter Weather, as track #7.

I just went back a few minutes on the DVR to check, and yes, there was a bad transition from the end of David Rose's medley of "Deck the Halls"/"The First Noel", and the beginning of George Melachrino's "Santa Claus Is Comiin' To Town" at around the 2:48 mark.

Thanks, everyone.  I ordered copies through Arkiv Music a few days ago, based on good things I had read, which included the fact that the booklet enclosed looked authentic, and that the sound was good.  They won't be here in time for Christmas, most likely, but I still have 364 other days a year to listen to it.  (With a bonus day next year.)

rbanders, have you purchased either the Amazon CD-R of this album, or the ArkivMusic version?;jsessionid=B5E889AD3EAFAE0D5FA27E8805BD7DA3?album_id=642923

Anything to say about the quality?

In addition to the ones Motown Mike recommends, I'd also suggest 'KIBM Secrets of Christmas'.  They stop the Christmas music a few times a day for 'Amos & Andy' shows, because the KIBM stations generally broadcast old-time radio shows.

I haven't visited one in years, but I had read a few industry articles that said that Best Buy was experimenting with carrying new vinyl releases, because they were doing well with selling turntables.

Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, all of them are shrinking their music sections in general, because they can't manage to keep them as profitable as they once were.

I don't think I've mentioned it before, because I don't like to mingle "business me" with "online me", but I co-own a music store.  We opened in 1988, and have been doing well as the other stores stop selling music.  We never stopped carrying vinyl, and 2010 was our best year for new and used vinyl since the CD took over as the main format.

"Greetings, Razzleberry.  So that transition period allowed retailers to
sell both CDs and albums together until they eventually cleared out
their vinyl inventory."

As CDs increased market share, the hard plastic security cases (the ones that you bring up to the register, and they unlock to remove the CD in the jewel case) became more prevalent.  Some are the same size as a CD longbox, and could fit in the same racks that previously held vinyl.

And you could say that the good music stores never stopped selling vinyl.  There's more new vinyl being released every week than at any point I can remember in the past 10 years.  That includes reissues, and new releases.  And there are something like 900 exclusive vinyl releases being offered at independent music stores this Saturday.

"I definitely remember  those big CD casings.  Another issue in the
beginning (maybe back to the '80s) was the cardboard outer box.  They
were twice the size of the CD and retailers complained about how much
room they took up.  I think what finally did them in was the fact that
they served no purpose.  People opened them, took out the CD, and just
threw away the cardboard box."

Jim, the CD longboxes did definitely use excess packaging that served no purpose after you removed the jewel case, but the package was a transition.  The longbox was 12" tall, and half the width of an LP, so stores that already had racks in place for selling vinyl could also use the same racks to display CDs.

Does it sound like it could have been from the 1967-68 era?  I'd venture a guess that it's the Regency Choir.

After a few minutes of searching, I didn't come up with any song samples.

And here is the URL for this year's webpage for the Rockefeller Center tree webcam:

The seller must have entered some incorrect info for all of his or her auctions, because every single item listed is a BIN for $1,000.

rbanders, do you have the ability to post the song to Rapidshare, or something like that, for us to listen to?

Richiedoo, it was mentioned several times here that there would be an additional 2-hour presentation from 4-6AM, including here, in the official press release thread:

And here, where Chip listed the stations and times for this year's presentation:
