An Old Fashioned Air Force Christmas

Tonight's share is one of those awesome Christmas albums produced by/for the US Armed Forces, in this case the US Air Force.  "An Old Fashioned Christmas" features Sonny James and Connie Smith on Side 1, and the Ray Conniff Singers on Side 2.  Interspersed within each side is dialogue with the artists and the Air Force representatives.  All in all, it's a lovely Christmas record.

For this share, I've left each side as a single audio file.  Separating the tracks and working out the breaks for the conversations would have given it a very choppy feel, so I decided it was best to present them as intact sides for a better listening experience.

I was particularly pleased to hear Connie Smith singing "A Christmas Lullaby".  I had not heard that by anyone other than Cary Grant.  It's one of my very favorite songs.
