But, for better or worse, every year at this time I get tons of comments from people who somehow think that I am the one granting Christmas wishes on KOST 103.5 FM. Oh, if I only could, my friends, I would, but, I was simply blogging about how much I loved KOST’s all-Christmas music format. That’s all. And, by the way, I still love it. So does Greta!
Anyway, the comments have been flowing in to our poor, abandoned sister blog Make.See.Eat.Do. again this year, so, I wanted to be sure and share this strange phenomenon with you all as well. The funny thing is that most of these people don’t even leave a contact number for me to reach them at, so, I don’t know how they expect to get the wishes they asked for, you know, actually granted. I guess they’re relying on the magic of Christmas. Either way, if anyone reading wants to answer some of these often very sad email pleas for wish granting, let me know…
In the meantime, I hope your holidays are going well. I’m slammed with work at the moment, but, will re-emerge from my shell soon. Until then, follow the link (included again below) to the original story and make sure and read all the crazy comments!
If you’ve never heard Miss Reddy’s Oscar-nominated tune, it’s from the groundbreaking 1970’s Disney film Pete’s Dragon. We recently rented it from the library and, groundbreaking or not (“Pete’s Dragon” is one of the first full-length feature films to combine animation and live-action), that movie is very f-ing strange. I’m talking almost unwatchable. Seriously, it’s CRAZY. But that sad-ass candle song still gets me every time. So, hold your children close, hit play on the video clip below and be prepared to weep like a little girl…or, you know, a grown man.
Either way, you’re gonna cry. Thank you, Miss Reddy!
