That's a great one! I love Kenny Gardner's voice. He was the lead singer for Lombardo for many years.

There are a lot of vids on YouTube of him singing with the band along about the same time as this recording. Here's an audio of him singing Frosty: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZIRIF2HEWs

During this Christmas season, one of my favorite pianists, Valentina Lisitsa, has been posting one movement each day of the piano version of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. She has her hands dressed to represent ballerinas in a different way each day. :) Here is the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Today I came to the realization that this recording of I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus was of a little boy by the name of Jimmy Boyd. Before now, I'd assumed it was a grown woman singing in a cutesy voice.
