Hooray for Christmas! (1971)


  1. The opening medley here involving Bing Crosby and all of his guest stars--Robert Goulet, Mary Costa, the Mitchell Singing Boys Choir and other Crosbys--is just TV magic in my head and heart. I can't find the name of the song, and I'm wondering if it's something that the show's producers wrote for this broadcast. For now, I'm calling it, "It Sounds a Lot Like Christmas."

  2. "Crosby's 'The Sounds of Christmas' came along first, looking a like a sparkly, family Christmas card. Robert Goulet and Mary Costa were along as singing guests. But what Bing called 'The House Band of Casa Cosby' were the real stars of the show--wife Kathryn and children Mary Frances, Nathaniel and Harry."

    That was AP TV-radio writer Cynthia Lowry on this show, and I love Cynthia Lowry.
