    hahah thanks Aaron! I had a fresh review ready to go and nowhere to put it! :p

    Sounds: All of Bing Crosby's radio XMAS specials

    Positives: A piece of history and heritage preserved perfectly. Original XMAS pieces performed by hit musicians and screen actors of the time that don't get any airplay these days

    Negatives: The channel jumped around a lot to different years' shows making it difficult to listen to shows within context. Pad data was too long so the exact date of the show was always cut off on the screen

    # of HO HO HOs: 4.99 out of 5

    Overall: Small issues on an amazing channel! XMAS song's you've never heard before, cute on-stage comedy skits, reports from the Netherlands and some Netherlands Christmas songs, reports from Bing's son with the Army in Austria with some Austrian Christmas songs being sung, even the mic'ed up Crosby kids XMAS gift opening back in the 30s was interesting until it became extremely annoying and I had to turn it off :p

    I didn't catch much of it, but I enjoy quite a bit of Bing Crosby Christmas music.

    I give it 3 stars.
