I can see it now, dad laying on the couch with his feet laying on mom's lap. I was laid out on the floor more interested in watching the lights on the tree than Andy Williams and my little brother irritating me by just being in the same room. oh for just five minutes of that one moment back in that little girls life..... I'd settle for two.
Andy was a wonderful family man. Years later, after he and Claudine divorced, he stood by her side and even paid for her criminal defense when she was charged with killing her then-boyfriend, Vladimir “Spider” Sabich. They remained friends, as far as I know, until Andy’s death in 2012.
Donny was right....you couldn't do shows like these anymore....now its all garish, super sexy outfits and dancing and basically destroying the traditional Christmas songs to update them. You don't update things like those. You can keep Mariah Carey and Kelly Clarkson and all the rest. I'd rather watch Andy.
The progression we are witnessing that is rushing so many away from the most beloved Christian traditions that emerged from our very sacred, heartfelt knowledge of Jesus' birth, death and resurrection. We must not let it pass into oblivion. Let us keep it alive, ever loving the music and message.
Remembering watching Andy Williams along with The Osmonds . My sister and I would already had our baths and hair washed and in curlers. Our dad would had popped popcorn over the fireplace and it would be ready for us when the Andy Williams show would come on . Wonderful memories growing up in the 60's and the 70's ! I just have to make a remark though who would not dislike Andy Williams and to give a thumbs down which I have noticed . Obviously , they do not know anything about worth and values when it comes to family , friends and people of all ages and the differences in others .
Back again in 2020. Not for CV19 hiding. But for all around great memories, of a once great America & Family Entertainment I well recall helping dad build that Heathkit COLOR TV, and this was the 1st Holiday Special we got to see in Living Color! And singing along with Mom to all the Carols? Life just didn't get any better.
Claudine Longet is so sweet and petite. Must be a black widow. She was convicted (but only of negligent homicide and sentenced for 30 DAYS) of killing her later boyfriend Spider Sabich in '76. She proceeded to steal her defense attorney away from his wife. Happy ending, though. They're still married today and Claudine is 78.
Cute! Andy certainly had a lovely voice. As did his brothers! My mom has always told me how much my family looked forward to his shows when she was growing up, and I wanted to see for myself what all the fuss was about (I was born in 1980, so this was certainly a bit of a ways before my time). So I got her a DVD about his shows last year for Christmas--she was thrilled to pieces, I'm happy to say. And I'm very surprised to see that the majority of the clips I saw on that DVD were from this episode!
I had forgotten that Andy Williams introduced The Osmonds to America on his TV specials. It's strange to see Donny as a little boy again. Also, his wife Claudine Longet, had a rather tragic ending. She was either murdered or killed herself I can't remember which. Still shows like this back in the day were something that brought families together in front of the TV. Thanks for the look back.
