Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

As promised, I am delivering this early this week, and as per the last couple weeks, it is a special Christmas version of the awards.

This week the award goes to everyone who has sung:

  • We Wish You A Merry Christmas (I’m sure you can see why I held it over for this week!)
  • Little Drummer Boy
  • Jingle Bells
  • Have a fantastic Christmas everybody!

    We wish you a Merry Christmas;
    We wish you a Merry Christmas;
    We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
    Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
    Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
    Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
    Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer
    We won’t go until we get some;
    We won’t go until we get some;
    We won’t go until we get some, so bring some out here

    We wish you a Merry Christmas;
    We wish you a Merry Christmas;
    We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum
    A new born King to see, pa rum pum pum pum
    Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum
    To lay before the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
    rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

    So to honor Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
    When we come.

    Little Baby, pa rum pum pum pum
    I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
    I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
    That’s fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
    rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

    Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
    On my drum?

    Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
    The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
    I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
    I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
    rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

    Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
    Me and my drum.

    Dashing through the snow
    In a one horse open sleigh
    O’er the fields we go
    Laughing all the way
    Bells on bob tails ring
    Making spirits bright
    What fun it is to laugh and sing
    A sleighing song tonight

    Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh
    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh

    A day or two ago
    I thought I’d take a ride
    And soon Miss Fanny Bright
    Was seated by my side
    The horse was lean and lank
    Misfortune seemed his lot
    We got into a drifted bank
    And then we got upsot

    Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh
    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh yeah

    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh
    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh

Carols By Candlelight

Just a quick reminder that Carols By Candlelight is on tonight at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne, with a live broadcast on Channel 9 and affiliated regional stations, and a live simulcast on 3AW, 2UE, 4BC and network stations (including 2CC).

It starts at 9pm and is supposed to end at 11:30, although it often goes overtime. Humphrey B. Bear and Santa will make an appearance, and Channel 9 have a replay tomorrow morning (check your local guide for details).

Kris McKenzie on the weekend

Kris McKenzie, newsreader on 2CC and 2CA, has moved into presenting shows today, filling in for Mike Frame on Weekend Magazine and The Trading Post. Not only is Kris an excellent newsreader, he has proven that he is a very good presenter, with a friendly and approachable style.

Whilst Kris is still a newsreader, I can certainly see him being handed more fill-in roles after his excellent performance today. Well done Kris!

Coming up today and tomorrow, Glenn Wheeler will be hosting his afternoon show, although he did say he would only be doing so from 2PM tomorrow…hopefully this will mean that Canberra is saved from Sydney gardening, that would make a fantastic Christmas present. Stuart Bocking appears to still be running New Day Australia over weekend, although the other shows are still a mystery to me.

A Christmas Present?

It probably wasn’t intentional, but it was nice anyway. The current “Open Line” promo on 2CC, where they take a bunch of snippets of calls to their shows and put them all together as an advertisement for how you get to have your say, features roughly two seconds of one of my calls. From memory it contains me saying “I suppose he was partially correct”, as it happens I seem to recall that I was talking about the Cronulla riots (although I can’t remember who I was referring to), I think I was talking with Mike Jeffreys at the time.

Thankyou 2CC, as I said, I’m sure it wasn’t intentional, but it still makes a nice Christmas present.
