THE PIX11 Yule LOG CELEBRATES 45 YEARS

THE YULE LOG TO AIR DECEMBER 25

FROM 9am to 1pm ON PIX11

 

NEW YORK, November 21, 2011 – It wouldn’t be a holiday in New York without the PIX11 Yule Log! The Yule Log, the famous film loop of a burning log in a hearth, has warmed the hearts of` viewers since it debuted on PIX in 1966. To celebrate the fabled fire stick’s 45th anniversary, PIX11 will air The Yule Log (available in HD) from 9am-1pm on Christmas morning, December 25th.

 

·       Viewers can follow the Yule Log on twitter @PIXYULELOG and become a fan of the Official Yule Log on facebook (PIXYuleLog)

·       Log merchandise (including “Nice Log!” and “That’s HOT!” boxer shorts) can be found at: http://www.cafepress.com/wpix/  

 

In recent years, The Yule Log has been digitally re-mastered and fully restored. In 2001 the original film was color corrected and cleaned. In 2003, the Log was up-converted to High Definition and PIX11 now airs The Yule Log in HD.  In 2006, to celebrate the Log’s 40th anniversary, Lawrence F. “Chip” Arcuri and Joe Malzone, the creators of theyulelog.com, restored the audio of The Yule Log and in 2009, with the assistance of “Chip” Arcuri, PIX11 added a new fourth hour to the program, including 23 classic holiday songs. The fourth hour leads off with Mantovani’s interpretation of Adeste Fideles, a classic that aired on the Yule Log in the late 1960s; now restored back to the program. The new hour adds 9 artists including Bert Kaempfert, Mitch Miller, Bing Crosby, Vic Damone and Johnny Mathis.
