About the show

Playing tracks by

The Salem Travelers, James Brown, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Aaron Neville and more.

This one’s for our soldiers overseas and in harm’s way. I can’t believe our politicians, doing corporate America’s bidding, continue to perpetuate the mistakes I never thought we’d repeat after Viet Nam. But now, as then, it’s the soldiers and their families making the sacrifice. They deserve to be remembered and honored this holiday season.

from 1968’s “Blue Christmas” by The Meditation Singers:

did you send a gift
to someone’s son over there
or did you even
take a moment of grief
did you realize what sacrifice
they’re going through in every way
but whenever whenever whenever whenever they come home
that will be a holiday

there’s gonna be a blue blue blue blue Christmas
for somebody somebody somebody somewhere

there’s gonna be a blue blue blue blue Christmas
and it may be somebody’s lover way over there

The image is from the December 1963 cover of Esquire magazine photographed by Carl Fischer.
