Traditional Christmas Music on GetCalhoun.com
With only a couple of exceptions*, all the music below was heard exactly...once. It
comes from live radio shows. Your parents or grandparents, or maybe even great
grandparents may have heard some of these songs before going about their
Christmas business long long ago. The shows on which this music was heard were
saved to a record, and then put up and forgotten until  being rescued by forward
thinking collectors. The audio was transferred to reel to reel tape, and then perhaps
to cassette, and finally to digital format so that it would play on computers. Most come
from the 40's and 50's, the period when Christmas was the best ever, and nobody had ever
heard of "winter lights", "winter music", and God and Jesus weren't banned.

Click on the Playlist below. Over one hour of GREAT music...perhaps not the best
quality, but GREAT music, which is all new to you and an unusual treat to listen to.
It will open on your computer in Windows Media or Winamp.
Whatever you have that plays music... You will enjoy!
