Welcome to episode 102 of Holly Jolly X'masu! In this episode, I talk about Mari Yoshiko’s 1962 album, “Singing Christmas Party.”

Mari Yoshiko – Singing Christmas Party – 1962

I hope you enjoyed “Singing Christmas Party.” I’m playing catch-up after last month so I don’t have much to add here. I did manage to get a record with her version of “Toy Cha Cha Cha,” which I mentioned in the episode, but I haven’t had the time to rip the vinyl so I couldn’t include it as a bonus song in this episode, which I’d hoped to do.

Be sure to join me back here next time for the 2009 album, “Acoustic Xmas” by Coffee Haus. It’s great, light Jazz album. Then join me on the 25th when I talk about A.S.A.P.’s 1993 album, “Merry Christmas Wish.” After last year, I didn’t think I’d be able to find another album to cover for Black History Month, but I was lucky enough to find this one. It’s a great album and one you’re sure to enjoy.

As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.

Remember, I've added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you'd like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Half of any proceeds or donations received will be donated to support the people of Ukraine, while the rest will be used to purchase new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!
