    Oh, I need to thank Stephen for this Upload--
    the Ray Moore 1981 Radio Interview, I note Karen's comments regarding
    Christmas Portrait and White Christmas (starting with "Manilow gets to me..." 22 min.):
    " If I'm upset...I'll put on our Christmas Album....that'll bring me to tears..."
    " It upsets us that music like that isn't accepted anymore..." (23:13).
    Because We Are In Love...
    " We cut it three days before the wedding..." (26:53)
    " This tune is a vocal feat,I'll tell ya...."(32:45)

    Many great photos, too (Interesting one at 26:20 with Richard's look !).

    Thanks, Stephen.

    I am not voting for the time being because it is just such a weird paring. A Christmas standard and a cut from the "Close To You" album. I love both of the songs. It simply would not be Christmas without Merry Christmas Darling but I love Mr Guder also. I love the album cut and I love it whenever Karen sings it live because of her facial expressions and how she gets so animated singing it. Impossible choice!:confused:
