It's twenty to four and going dark!
Only 12 more days and the days start getting longer! YIPPEE!!!
I love Christmas No1s and have collected them over the years on 78, vinyl and CD.
The beginning of the 70s saw the Christmas comedy song theme continue into the twee and then fun.
At the charity radio station where I first played the Christmas no1s, People rang in and pledged to have a record played. While I was playing Long Haired Lover, someone rang up and offered us £20 to turn it off!!
Slade are going to be forever in and out of the charts at Christmas time with this single. I think that this song has become more well known than any traditional Christmas song.
Here's the next two songs;
Little Jimmy Osmond - Long Haired Lover From Liverpool
Slade - Merry Xmas Everybody
