A last-minute Music Saturday.

We were shopping today – my Bestie and I – groceries and other sundries.

Grocery store music played a Christmas song that I recalled to her that was on the Beatles’ Christmas records.

Kapung Khaf, Alana.

Enjoy the seasonal music.

I don’t have any Christmas pictures available in my image file.  That is Boots, our neighbourhood kitty.  She is getting chubby from all the food we give to her.  Chubby Chica.

I once owned a copy of The Beatles’ Christmas Album.  I enjoyed listening to it, hearing these musicians evolve through the years when they were together.  Yowch!  There was quite a change.

I worked part-time at KBWA (1979 – 1980).  It was a Beautiful Music format.  I managed to find various snippets from these Christmas Album tracks to play during Christmas 1979 that fit the format.  That was fun to share these with the audience.

Sadly, John Lennon was murdered in December 1980.  I brought my copy of the album to one of the Rock radio stations to play during their tribute to Lennon that weekend.  The DJs had not heard it before.  I’m certain that they and their audience were likewise pleased to hear this record.

I ponder.  Do the criminals who stole my record albums know – really know – what they stole?  Or did they destroy them elsewhere as they did leave destruction at my home?

Post Script:

Did you catch the Paul McCartney interview on CBS Sunday Morning?

That was nice.

Paul McCartney on creating his new solo album “McCartney III”

11min

While he was in pandemic lockdown, Sir Paul McCartney was writing new music for his latest solo album, “McCartney III,” on which the 78-year-old not only served as songwriter and producer but also played nearly every instrument. Correspondent Seth Doane talked with McCartney about the former Beatle’s “rockdown,” and his songwriting relationship with John Lennon, who was killed 40 years ago this month.
