Hello December! It’s that favourite time for many, the Christmas Season! While many may have opinions on the season, or don’t wish to celebrate it, you can’t go wrong with remembering the real reason for the season, and the great music that pops up! On the first Oldies Sunday of December, we kick off a Christmas Edition, and the first selection comes from the legendary Barrington Levy! Remixing the Jimmy Boyd 1952 classic, “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus“, Barrington drops “I Saw Mommy Kissing A Dreadlocks“! Released by Mic Productions and features Recording Artist/Producer Trinity, this song was featured on the 1981 Christmas compilation project titled, “Yard Style Christmas”! In the song Barrington sings about catching his Mother kissing a dreadlocked Santa Claus who stopped at his house because of a storm and brought greetings and gifts of Sensimilla (Marijuana) from Jah.
Merry Christmas from 13thStreetPromotions! While many of us are not feeling the Christmas Spirit or having a hard time celebrating because of certain events, there are others who relish this day for the gifts, food, or just being able to be with the ones they love. Remember what’s Important.

This for all the Jamaicans living overseas who managed to get their money together so they could come home for the holidays. Fab 5 gives a hearty welcome with their classic “Welcome Home For Christmas Day“. Really makes you feel at home when this is played and i’m sure it should be played on the next few Caribbean Airlines flights.
