Another Broken Record for the fifth day of Christmas--"Santa Claus Is Coming"
Strange but cool name for a record label--Another Broken Record. And it almost become one--the center hole is so small, I had to force it on and off the spindle. But, luckily, the disc (despite being a 78) is some kind of hard plastic rather than shellac, so it could withstand the twisting.
Two nice, humble Christmas sides from 1949. Never heard of Bob Gleason, but he had a fine voice--and he co-wrote both sides. I'm assuming he's not the guy I found when I Googled "Bob Gleason" + "singer."
Enjoy this "novelty Fox Trot" today!
