There really aren’t any shows on today that are comparable. Simple, great singing, a little dancing, a little hokey…I loved them and I had a crush on Andy Williams.
Something about the music and skits were comforting and very Christmas-y in my young mind – they are still fun to watch and they still make me happy.
I remember watching Andy and his three brothers singing together – four brothers in harmony. I grew up to have four sons of my own. How fun that must have been for their family.
One year he introduced a young group of brothers named Osmond. We all know that name, one in particular. While Donny wasn’t included at first, little girls everywhere soon were mooning over him. I know I did. Unfortunately for Andy, Donny soon won out.
Yet, even after all these years, Andy Williams still holds a special place in my heart. I still love to hear his songs and watch his old shows.
He was a national treasure – one of the greatest voices of our time and an overall nice guy. Guess I did pretty well choosing my crush.
Here’s a look back at a clip from one of his shows. Enjoy…
