Auld Lang Syne

“Auld Lang Syne,” by Guy Lombardo & his Royal Canadians, a familiar sound to baby boomers, since this band appeared on the live New Year’s Eve telecasts of the “ball drop” in Times Square in the Fifties, Sixties, and early Seventies. The band had filled the same role on radio, starting in 1929. This recording is from 1947.

Christmas Island

December 26, 2013

“Christmas Island,” written by Lyle Moraine, who worked as a bit player in films. His novelty song was first performed by the Andrews Sisters with Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians in 1946. The song has been re-recorded many times; we like the version by Leon Redbone.
