A note from Ray:
It was wonderful working with 25 singers again on this Christmas album. I just wish everyone who listens to this album could have stood beside me on the conducting podium in front of the 25 singers. It was truly a great thrilling experience.

It always seems that escape channel is the "escape" for other music. XM used to have new temporary channels for the christmas music. That all changed when the "merger" took place.

I noticed the "blips" on The Christmas Song and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. I wasn't sure if this was an isolated problem with my computer.

I just received my copy of the CD today via CCMusic. What a nice early Christmas present!!!

During the past several years, Christmas music would increase (number of songs per hour) up to 12 noon Christmas eve, then solid Christmas music until 12 Midnight on Christmas Day. 36 hours of continious Christmas music on Escape.
Maybe someone on the list knows what the programming of Christmas music will be on Escape this year.

Thank you for letting us know about "escape". I will be looking forward to the great Christmas Music that Marlin Taylor programs.

This is what I received from CCMUSIC:
We are officially entering the crazy days of the 2009 holiday season and just in time to soundtrack your season we've got brand new Christmas releases on our own Collectors' Choice Music label! Petula Clark's new "This Is Christmas" collection features tracks culled from the '60s, the '70s and the '90s plus four brand new tracks! Our "Christmas With The King Family" CD expands the original 12-track 1977 album with a staggering 15 bonus tracks, and our King Family DVD brings together digitally remastered clips from all of the King Family's '60s and '70s holiday TV specials (plus the 1967 special in it's entirety)! Petula and the King Family titles are in stock now, and on December 1st we're bringing back to print one of the most famous Christmas albums of all time…Mantovani's 1958 holiday classic, "Christmas Carols." Appearing here on CD in stereo for the very first time!
While we've got you in the holiday music mood, why not take a look back at our own label's history of reissuing holiday classics. Don Ho, Dean Martin and the Kingston Trio are just a few of the artists whose Christmas albums we've rescued from the vaults. All of our label's holiday releases are marked down and on sale now!

Collector's Choice Music has now announced the release date of Mantovani's 1958 'Christmas Carols' CD to be released on 12/1.

Hopefully Escape XM Channel 28 will play Christmas music as they have in the past.

Could it be from the group, "Three suns"? they used accordian in their music? Just a thought.

Follow-up to above message:
Sorry for the second reply, I have a CD titled, "24 Christmas Favorites with the living strings and voices" there is a group listed as the "Living Trio" that has an accordian in the music. This might be the Three suns in disguise(?) The songs that the Living Trio perform are:
It came upon a midnight clear
Angels We have heard on high
Jolly Old St. Nicholas
O come all ye faithful
Hope this helps!!!

If you are looking for more Percy Faith Christmas music, you can find, "My Favorite Things" on the "south pacific/The sound of music" CD issued by Taragon Records. If you want the instrumental version of Christmas Is, you can find that on the Percy Faith CD "More themes for young lovers/Latin themes For young lovers" "Christmas Is" song is also "Judy" This was issued by oldies.com.
I'm not sure if they are still in print.
