OLDIES SUNDAY (Christmas): Johnny Osbourne – Christmas Stylee (1980)


It’s Christmas Day all over the world, and whatever the reason, may you find love, joy, and rest during the season. While some may have done away with the gifts and matching PJs, it’s time for a lil music. While you sip on the Sorrel, tune into Oldies Sunday to hear Johnny Osbourne’s “Christmas Stylee“!

Produced by Sir Coxsone Dodd and released through Studio One in 1980, Johnny Osbourne gives us a special selection that gets listeners excited for the Christmas season. Paired with great production and performed with The Family Group, Osbourne shares the news of the birth of King Jesus, and gets us all into the groove. You couldn’t help but dance and singalong to this track, and it became an instant favourite for many. “Christmas Stylee” was featured on the “Sir Coxsone’s Family Album: Christmas Stylee” Compilation Album and “Reggae Christmas From Studio One“, and are just some of the many Jamaican Christmas compilations that have been released over the years.

OLDIES SUNDAY (Christmas): Red Plastic Bag – Maizie


It’s the last Sunday before Christmas Day, and we hope you aren’t under immense pressure to get presents for everyone. It’s also another Oldies Sunday, and we have another selection that plays in the theme of the season. We take a trip to Barbados to check out Red Plastic Bag’sMaizie“!

Produced by Mc Donald Fingall and released through the Pond Side label, Red Plastic Bag had to deliver something special for the holiday season. The song is a take on a classic Christmas song, but with Red’s signature twist as he speaks on the character “Maizie” who has been caught kissing Santa Claus. The story gets interesting as Maizie is being approached with questions about the man she’s kissing to see if it’s really Santa, or her secret lover. The drama-filled song became a popular since its release, and remains a favourite among Bajans, and listeners from around the world during Christmas time. Red Plastic Bag is a multi-year Soca Monarch King, and is one of the Icons of Calypso/Soca in the Caribbean.

Next Sunday is Christmas Day, save us a seat at the table.

OLDIES SUNDAY (Christmas): Marcia Miranda – Gimme Love Fuh Christmas (1993)


It’s that time of year when it’s colder than cold, and Sorrel and Ham become holiday staples. It’s Christmas time on Oldies Sunday. For today’s entry, we take a trip to Trinidad & Tobago to hear Marcia Miranda’sGimme Love Fuh Christmas“!

Arranged by Pelham Goddard, “Gimme Love Fuh Christmas” was released through Crosby’s in 1993. The holiday-themed track finds Marcia Miranda rejecting all the typical gifts that one would want for Christmas, and is instead needing love from her Husband. It gets very chilly at that time of year, and without the love of her life, the season is a sad one. “Gimme Love” resonates with many during this time of year as some would find themselves lonely, or even distant from the ones they love. We hope that changes for many of our listeners. Marcia Miranda’s “Gimme Love Fuh Christmas” became a popular Parang track when released, and is still played through various outlets to this day.

Marcia Miranda is still very active in the Caribbean, and has a catalogue that extends beyond Parang. Stay tuned to this platform for another holiday offering on Oldies Sunday!

OLDIES SUNDAY (Christmas): Willie Colon & Hector Lavoe – Esta Navidad (1971)


It’s only a few days before Christmas Day, but we had to get you an Oldies Sunday fix. For the month of December, we feature some of the Christmas songs you grew up on. Today’s selection finds us in Puerto Rico for Musicians/Producers Willie Colon and Hector Lavoe’sEsta Navidad“.

Produced along with Jerry Masucci and released through Fania Records (a first for the label) in 1971, Christmas gets some Latin flavour thanks to the sounds of Willie Colon and Hector Lavoe. Willie and Hector are legends in the genre, and making Christmas music was just another extension of their respective brands, and showed that they could make gold out of anything. “Esta Navidad” was featured on the duo’s 1971 album, “Asalto Navideño“. Need some Salsa for the holidays? Tune in, and Merry Christmas when it comes!

It’s that time of year again where we roll out your favourite holiday songs, it’s Christmas time on “Oldies Sunday“!
