An "Updated Take" on Linus & Lucy

Post by Uncle Al »

A Charlie Brown Christmas Theme 'Linus and Lucy'
On Dec. 9th, 1965 - 56 years ago - nearly half of the US population tuned in to
A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles Schultz, an animated broadcast that
featured the music of the Vince Guaraldi Trio.

Until his death in July of 2021, drummer and Halifax native Jerry Granelli was the
last surviving member of that original trio.

Fun stuff. That's about the only piece of contemporary Christmas music that doesn't make my blood boil, and is surprisingly appropriate at any time of the year, like Handel's Messiah. Some things transcend.

Mercifully I've been spared Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer thus far; however, if I hear Santa Baby one more time this year I fear I'll go prompt critical and detonate on the spot.

My nearest supermarket plays the worst of American slushy Christmas music every December, so imagine my surprise a few days ago to hear a delightful piece that could have come straight from the 'B' side of an Edison Bell Winner record of about 1912.  The tune was absolutely characteristic of many mediocre popular songs of that period, although the words in 1912 would have been a bit more imaginative and would probably have told a story.  

Has someone found some old sheet music and slipped it into this year's selection unnoticed?
There is no such thing as a normal person, only someone you don't know very well yet.
