Jazz with George Thomas on VPR with Hanukkah, Christmas & No Snow for Tuesday, 12/20/11 

We celebrate the first night of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah and continue with Christmas songs old & new, from Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song" (the 1946 first recording of this song, there are now over 800 versions) to Marcus Roberts's take on "Let It Snow." I included a lot of "snow" songs as we all pray for a White Christmas.
