Ho, ho, ho, yo! For this year’s Christmas Quickie, we’re highlighting two classic holiday records that were featured on TV specials.

The Dude’s selection is a far-out collection of holiday standards and originals from folk artist John Denver. The album’s calm, soothing sound and focus on the majestic Rocky Mountains will transport you to a magical place with butterflies, bears and shaggy 70s haircuts.

Andy’s recommendation comes straight from a doctor – Dr. Seuss and his classic story of the Grinch. The soundtrack is short, but beautifully tells a story of redemption and triumph of the Christmas spirit. Boris Karloff stars as the Grinch, accompanied by the MGM studio orchestra and choir.

Here’s the album recommendations from the show:

John Denver – Rocky Mountain Christmas (1975)
Various Artists – Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1966)
