16 thoughts on “Yule Tune: It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year (Andy Williams)

  1. Last December, PBS ran an Andy Williams Special, including the back story of his life, his family etc.. and I kid you not, I was in tears. Watching the special brought me back to my youth.

    That same month, PBS also ran a Carol Burnett special causing me to buy her Box Set DVD collection.

    Last week over Thanksgiving my brother and I watched a few of the DVDs and we were howling. At one point my brother (who is 2 years older than me, I’m 46) said, “This was damn good television.” and I said, “Yep, it sure was. They don’t make TV like this anymore.” I lose it, ever time I see Harvey Korman start to lose it. Tim Conway had a gift for making poor Harv just lose is it.


    Those are some good times. [sniff]


    • SUSAN!!! I’m not sure if it’s my age or this time of year, but there I am definitely becoming more nostalgic. I’m so tired of reality and sort-of-reality shows and talent shows. I’d love a variety show — good writing, comedy that isn’t demeaning or rude, music. I don’t know if you have an iPhone or iPad, but there are two apps you would love: Video Time Machine and Holiday Time Machine. You can go back in time and watch classic shows. And, here are some early Christmas gifts for you, courtesy of Carol Burnett:


  2. i do love Andy Williams and I really consider this song a classic. I watched the Andy Williams show from the very beginning when I was probably no older than about 10 years old. I loved all the guests and remember when the Osmond’s were just getting started, too. You are definitely putting me in a very nostalgic mood. I’m glad you like some of these oldies…I didn’t exactly think of Andy as an “oldie” until I started adding up the years. 🙂
