"starting in the frigid wastes of northwest New Jersey"
You sound like you're in the middle of the Arctic, or Minnesota even.
You haven't experienced cold until you've stood on a bridge over the South Saskatchewan River in Edmonton on New Year's Day in a snow storm with a howling gale blowing. Why was I doing that you might ask? Because it was New Year's Day I would answer - say no more Squire!

Back to more mundane matters. Seems like I just said this yesterday but once again Jack is back! I guess it's fine and dandy.

A REAL hard guy would have toughed it out on the NORTH Saskatchewan River. And I bet you did it without the harrowing misery of pine resin making your fingers stick together and pointy, scalpel-sharp needles dropping down your shirt and into your netherwear. Also, bet your wife wasn't harping at you about whether there are too many red lights too close together on the left lower quadrant of the balsam. Color me unimpressed.

That's pretty funny! Wish I was there to watch the fun. Keep us posted.
For the first time EVER, all of our decorations, lights etc are up before the third Sunday of Advent. It used to drive the wife and kids nuts in days of yore.

Ah, days of yore.  I used to love this task when there was an excited youngster with bright red cheeks wandering the tree lot with us and afterward looking for favorite remembered ornaments to hang.  It's a little different now! But she'll be home for the holiday, so tradition must be served!

Mr. Kyser arrives for his latest appearance considerably beaten up and not sounding as well as we'd expect. Our FIRST upgrade of this posting would seriously be appreciated here!

I'm totally underwhelmed! I was expecting an update from Mr. Sticky Fingers about all the trials, tribulations, strings and outrageous fortune of your day out in the cold yesterday!

My profound apologies, CDM, the behavior of a callous dullard on my part. It took hours just to GET my fingers sticky as they remained frozen together by the copious tears I wept at seeing this year's price tag. Sad
Could be a bit of olfactory "bah, humbug" at work here, but I'd swear these dang things don't even SMELL right anymore. Of course, I DID notice a cat wandering around the place. Hmmm.

Now, where were we? Ah, yes... Mr. Carson returns with a program that features some TD rehearsal recordings from earlier "Your All-Time Hit Parade" sessions (so saith Mr. Goldin):

Yes indeed, 'twould appear the 'Good Old Days' are 'Good and Gone'.

I don't believe it, Jack is back again - for the umpteenth time. This time he's experiencing a heat wave.

In which Harry Lillis Crosby flaunts his Washington State heritage in a snappy rendition of "Snoqualmie Joe". Also, there's Andy Devine, if you like that sort of thing.

Jack is NOT back on this next one.
It's the old groaner repeating himself with the Bombardier's Song.

Thanks for the kind words!

A real treat today as the occupancy of the editor's desk starts diversifying a good deal... everybody's 14th choice for favorite song and dance man, George Murphy, arrives on the scene. Given the many AFRS-originated variety programs that were being produced at this point, it wouldn't be surprising if the talent was getting stretched a little thin. Crosby and Hope must have been permanently wearing roller skates by now to get from appearance to appearance...

And please don't forget Jack, who was not only making a movie every week or so during this time frame, but spending a lot of time being back yet again on this one. Here he is hosting a wild and wooly Ransom Sherman and Hi, Lo, Jack and the Dame in a rousing rendition of Chichicastenango. Yes folks, that's the name of a town in Guatemala - I had to look it up also.

Hope not many hearts were broken thinking I might not post today. (Lame, I know, but I'm kinda pressed here. Holidays, y'know.) Jack has maybe even better musical company today as Johnny Mercer and the Pied Pipers are headliners in the entertainment section:

I was. I thought your fingers had stuck together on a delayed basis and you were hopping around trying to figure out how to keyboard with your teeth!

I have the pleasure(?) of introducing a first-timer for the editor job, Joe E. Brown who, although not really my cup of tea, does a pretty funny skit with Cass Daley at the outset and then with Cass and Lucille Ball later on. Certainly not PC in those days.

And now off to the movies to see how naughty the Dupont Corp. really was.

Looks like I've got Senator Murphy again... but also a nice rendition of "The Trolley Song", courtesy of the Pied Pipers.

Followed by Abbott & Costello with Lou going ape feathers over 'Who's On First'. I know they had script in hand on these shows but I've seen them do this on TV and in videos with no script. The patter and retorts are so slick!

A little added note here as I've updated my files through show #90. Always trying to stay ahead of the game in case someone might post a fill!

The top of the table, MC-wise, now has Jack leading the way with 17, followed by Bing & Kay tied for 16 and Bob way back with 10 appearances. Just sayin'.
