musicnote1OAG Senior Producer Gary Waleik writes about his musical selections for this week's program.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy by The Boston Ballet Orchestra (from the Selection’s from The Nutcracker, BBO Records, 1995)

Gary's take: I love the scene where Clara proves the Unified Field Theory…

The Little Christmas Tree by Nat King Cole (from Christmas for Kids from One to Ninety-Two, Capitol, 2000)

Gary's take: Nat could wassail with the very best of them. Here’s proof.

God’s Footballer by Billy Bragg (from Don’t Try This at Home, Elektra, 1991)

Gary's take: Just a wonderful song…I don’t know what to say beyond that.

Fidelity Fiduciary Bank (from Mary Poppins Original Soundtrack, Walt Disney Records, 1997)

Gary's take: Any truth the rumor that the CEOs of all bailout recipients received this CD? They should have.

O Tannenbaum by John Hart (from Yule Struttin’: A Blue Note Christmas, Blue Note, 1990)

Gary's take: For those suffering from Guaralditoxicosis (also known as overexposure to A Charlie Brown Christmas).
