Rare & Scratchy Rock 'N Roll Podcast

This is our fifth annual Xmas podcast. On earlier editions, show #25 told “The Little-Known Stories Of The Biggest Christmas Hits." #51 showcased "The Top 40 Lost Hits Of Christmas." #75 presented "The Beatles & Elvis Presley For Christmas." And #101 spotlighted “45 Forgotten 1960s Xmas 45s.” Now on this episode #125, it’s the yuletide tunes of another decade – “45 Forgotten 1970s Xmas 45s.” Including the rarest Xmas hit single of all time.

All but five of the songs we’re sampling made the hit singles charts in the U.S. and/or the U.K. But now these tunes are missing from most AM, FM, and satellite stations’ holiday season play lists.

Our resident “Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll” Rockologist Ken Deutsch adds background about the hit music surveys that ranked Xmas singles in the 1970s. And Radio Dave will have more of the greatest rock and roll stories on record. Hear it all here.
