PERRY COMO CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
This is an actual Perry Como Christmas Special, from 1958. The picture quality isn't great, but neither were television sets back then. This is probably what it looked like on your TV. Suspend your disbelief and pretend it's 1958: Sputnik has just been launched by the Russians, Nabokov is causing a stir with "Lolita," and Elvis has just gone into the army. Listen to this and you'll wish Elvis had never left.
