We mentioned that last weekend was the one year anniversary of the passing of Jimy Rogers, lead singer of The Mauds.
We've featured Jimy's version of the Christmas Classic "White Christmas" previously in Forgotten Hits ... and this seemed like a great time to feature it again.
We'll also feature one of MY personal favorites, "I Lose It When I Hear 'White Christmas'", a song written by our FH Buddy Artie Wayne and Toni Wine ... and sung by Tony Orlando. (Now HERE'S a song that radio ought to be playing ... they don't come much finer than this one!)
And, speaking of Artie Wayne, he's got another great offer for our Forgotten Hits Readers today.
