No more David Letterman? That must mean no more of Darlene Love singing “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” on the show, which she did for many years. Here’s the very first appearance (1986) although the song actually dates from 1963.


Elvis and Latkes

We’ve got lots of Christmas music. One of our favorites is Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Darlene Love. She sings it just about every year on the Letterman Show. Wonder if that’s happening this year. Darlene Love’s had a long career, Bernie says, going way way back to early days with Phil Spector. Phil Spector: that name rings a bell. A perp of some sort?

Bob Dylan has a new Christmas record out, Bernie says. “Hard to ignore that!”

Today is Sunday – Elvis gospel on XM/Sirius is a dead giveaway. Hey! Dead Giveaway – is that a possible title? My favorite Elvis gospel song is Milky White Way. A long time ago – this is a story of Admin’s – way before youtube, hard to imagine – Admin spent a day trying to track down the original Milky White Way by the Trumpeteers, finally found it at Skippy White’s in Cambridge Mass. Is that still around?

Note to Wookie of Chevy Chase: never had latkes but now I want to. And thanks for the Chanukah wishes. One of Bernie’s mom’s husbands along the way celebrated Chanukah, but by the time it came around on the calendar they were divorced. You should meet the new guy!
