1968: “Christmas with Colonel Sanders” Chris December 16, 2011 1960-1969, Music 4 CommentsFavourited 1061 times Add to favourites 4 Responses qka December 29, 2011 Companies putting out Christmas records every year seems to have been somewhat common in the 1960s. Christmas of my childhood included listening to a number of holiday records put out by Firestone. Reply craig January 3, 2012 This practice still goes on, it’s just that today’s compilations are not put out by Goodyear or Kentucky Fried Chicken, but by Starbucks, Williams-Sonoma, Pier 1, etc. My parents probably still have ‘Christmas Eve with Col. Sanders’. We listened to it and others like it every year when we were kids. Reply Kait January 9, 2012 so does anyone have recordings uploaded anywhere? I’m curious as to what Mr. Sanders sounded like on vinyl… Reply Bryan Carpenter February 11, 2013 Actually he did not sing on these albums. My Dad had the Christmas eve and and Christmas day ones. He was more of a collector of these songs and presented them I guess. Just the use of his image to sell them. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
