Sorta Annual Christmas Animal Song Special

by | Dec 24, 2014

I presented my Sorta Annual Christmas Animal Song special—that is, a show entirely devoted to Christmas-oriented animal songs.

281820Sure, as in the past, to pull off this conceit, I sprinkled the program with a liberal sprinkling of various versions of “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer,” and variations thereof, including Keith Richards’ classic fiery take on “Run Rudolph Run.”

Thanks to guidance from WMNF Music Director Lee Courtney—Flee, though this time of year, a4070327202_10he’s known as Flee Navidad–I also played some far less obvious nuggets and possible future classics. My favorites in that category this year include Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas’ bouncy “I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas” and Launch Control’s punk-ish “The RSPCA Took My Reindeer Away.”

Extending an annual tradition, I also took a brief break from the animal songs to read what I refer to as the Dorothy Strauss Christmas Message.
