One of the Christmas Season's Most Unique Pairings

Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas aired on this date, November 30, 1977. It gave us this holiday classic.

Crosby passed away just over a month before the TV special aired, passing on October 14th at the age 74. The song had been recorded 5 weeks prior to his passing on September 11th. The collaboration was unusual to say the least, with the legendary actor/singer teaming with one of the biggest, and most unique rock stars of the time, David Bowie.

"Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy" is one of the most requested songs on Y1025 each Christmas season.
