Hi readers. Thanks for coming by for a read this morning.
Bob Hope used to do those USO shows every year. In fact Al Jolson died in the aftermath of returning from a USO show in Korea. Fact is, any Christmas entertainment that includes John Wayne jokes and nasty jibes at draft dodgers burning their draft cards is probably worth a rerun anytime anyone is singing songs about Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men.
Ms. Welch, at least, is about reality, which every USO show should include a taste of.
As an aside, a lot of you probably didn’t know Clint Eastwood’s real identity was Andy Williams. Here he is singing something I thought of as a favorite in 1963.
No Christmas is complete without Clint Eastwood singing Old Bilbao Moon.
Here’s wishing everyone a merry little war.
