Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll

The "Rare & Scratchy Rock 'N Roll" groove yard is home to one of the largest known collections of Christmas records this side – or any side of the North Pole – along with an encyclopedic archive of the histories behind those tunes.


And from holiday seasons past comes this Christmas present for you – the pick of those platters plus some pleasing patter with festive and fun factoids.


You'll hear the least-known stories behind the most played Christmas records (such as White ChristmasBlue Christmas, and The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting), the first rock and roll Christmas hit, the top-secret technology from the 1940s that was used to create Christmas hits in the 1950s, and a Christmas hit from a blockbuster film that helped bust a real life villain.


This holiday mix also includes the rarest Christmas hit single ever, as well as a song that just could be the worst Christmas record of all time.


And it’s all just in time to help you celebrate the songs of the season.


And don't forget our second annual Xmas episode that was posted in 2017 – R&SRNR _051 – "The Top 40 Lost Christmas Hits".
