Welcome to episode 37 of Holly Jolly X’masu! In this episode, I talk about the 1982 album, “Non Stop! Christmas,” by Pochettes.

As I mentioned in the episode, I didn’t know what to expect when I got this. Having worked with an airbrush for several years in high school and college, I liked the cover. I was hoping for a bit more Disco, but I wasn’t entirely displeased overall. I’m sure not everything on the album will appeal to everyone, but I’m hoping each of you listeners enjoys at least some of what’s on it.

While most of the songs in the medley are standards, here’s the full list in case you missed any:

  1. Jingle Bells (0:23) 2. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (0:33) 3. Joy To The World (0:06) 4. The Twelve Days Of Christmas (0:26) 5. Sleigh Ride (0:15) 6. Jingle Bell Rock (0:29) 7. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer (0:29) 8. Winter Wonderland (0:30) 9. Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town (0:45) 10. Frosty The Snowman (0:44) 11. Here Comes Santa Claus (0:23) 12. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus (0:58) 13. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (0:57) 14. Little Christmas Tree (0:58) 15. I’ll Be Home For Christmas (0:58) 16. Little Drummer Boy (0:50) 17. Deck The Halls (0:30) 18. White Christmas (1:00) 19. The Christmas Song (0:46) 20. Oh Come All Ye Faithful (0:37) 21. You’re All I Want For Christmas (0:58) 22. Silver Bells (0:22) 23. The First Noel (0:47) 24. We Wish You A Merry Christmas (0:29)

I talked quite a bit about Stars On 45, and I mentioned Holly & the Ivy’s “Christmas on 45.” Here are links to videos for them. If you were alive in the early 80s, these should bring back some hopefully fond memories.
