16 December: Bobby Helms: Captain Santa Claus (And His Reindeer Space Patrol)

Published December 16, 2021

'Jingle Bell Rock' by Bobby Helms, is, of course, one of the most-played Christmas songs, and therefore "banned" from this Advent Calendar. But what about 'Captain Santa Claus (And His Reindeer Space Patrol)', the B-side of the original 1957 single? Have you heard that? It's one for the sci-fi fans out there and, in my opinion, too much fun to be tucked away on a single flipside.

Listen to 'Captain Santa Claus (And His Reindeer Space Patrol)' here.

Or listen on Spotify, where I've created a playlist for this year's Advent Calendar.

The Spotify playlist for all the previous Advent Calendars is here. Note: The playlist is incomplete, as some of my calendar selections are just too obscure for Spotify.











His Christmas single B-side was also great.
