  1. Just listened to your broadcast with Johnny Mathis – my No.1 singer of many decades! I think it was said that Johnny’s new CD (Sending You A Little Christmas) marks the first time that Johnny had dueted on a Christmas CD. I have a 2002 Columbia CD, ‘It’s Christmas Time Again’ on which Johnny duets with Gladys Knight several times. Even if this CD was not a main issue, it is still one on which he duets Christmas songs!

    1. Thanks for your comment. Actually, Johnny told me that — didn’t want to correct him. LOL! Happy New Year!
