While searching the internet for all things Lorne Greene,
I stumbled upon an obscure website called "cheezepleeze.com".
What I found is truly special, and I'll be sharing it with you over the next 28 days.
The description of what I'm about to share comes from the site itself:
When I was working in radio in the 1990's for a station I used to listen to when I was a kid,
I was looking at some tapes literally next to the bulk tape eraser.
I guess someone cleaned out the office file drawer or something,
but I remember hearing these shows when I was a kid on the
station in the early 80's and what great radio it was.
I didn't think twice of grabbing the two 7 inch reels for my personal archive.
I still am a pack rat to a degree, and in 1999, I decided to post them on
a site which continued every Christmas for a number of years.
After issues with web hosts and moving to a new server for our weekly,
produced salute to cheezy music, I decided to devote some bandwidth
to give this page a permanent home. I can imagine few copies of this series still exist,
as I've found no real info on the web other then this site.
Often, you'd be lucky to have 100 copies produced, so unless the masters still exist somewhere,
I suspect I am one of the few who has a copy of the tapes.
I am very happy to share my tapes with you, as Christmas time
is all about sharing something very special.
May you all enjoy these programs as much as I do. -Scott Snailham
Each recording is approximately two minutes in length.
I'll be posting them in the sequence they originally aired on Canadian radio.
So, tune in every day from now until the 28th
to hear a different installation of
"The Spirit of Christmas."
