Christmas is a time for nostalgia. Snow storms around the holidays in your childhood were like no snows before or after. For some folks, the Christmas albums by Robert Shaw and his Chorale of the 1950s and 1960s were the greatest ever. Judging from LP sales on the internet, Shaw's fans must be the most faithful ever. On Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM 90.9, we will hear some old favorite carols as arranged by Robert Shaw and Alice Parker.
