Music Thursdays: Christmas Is Here On The Radio After 50 Years

It took over 50 years, but finally someone’s Christmas song has made it onto the radio!  One grandpa’s Christmas wish is finally coming true after more than half a century. In 1965, Johnny Gondesen wrote and recorded an original Christmas song. He called it “Christmas Is Here.” He released it on a 45 record but no radio station would ever play it. Over the years, he would sing the song at family gatherings and during the holidays. Now, at 83 years old, his Christmas dreams are finally coming true. Gondesen’s grandkids took to social media, writing “help our grandpa feel famous.”
