Christmas Party.
Mercury Miniature Playhouse.
With Two Ton Baker the merry music maker.

Dick “Two Ton” Baker was a giant — literally and figuratively — on the Chicago entertainment scene for nearly four decades, from the late 1930s until his death in 1975. He played piano quite well and sang in a pleasing, infectious baritone voice, but mainly, he entertained, in whatever medium. He had several popular radio shows on on the Chicago Tribune’s flagship station, WGN, one of which went out nationwide over the Mutual network. He was on the first television broadcast on WGN-TV (April 5, 1948), and later had very popular children’s programs on that and other Chicago TV stations.

The night before Christmas.
Jingle bells.
Up on the housetops.
