We interrupt this Christmas break…

… to bring you Toronto Maple Leaf legend Johnny Bower’s timeless holiday classic, Honky The Christmas Goose. The fundraiser was penned by CBC producer Chip Young and recorded in November 1965 by Johnny with Little John (his son, then 9) and The Rinky Dinks. The tune sold 40,000 copies in its first year.

See the terrific biographical piece by Inside/Out friend Joe Pelletier at his Legends of Hockey website. Happy holidays, John!

    Dave, do you have an estimate of when the next podcast will be created and posted? I was hoping the first 2008 edition of your podcast would have been yesterday. Perhaps it is in the works, and may touch on the Chicago-Habs tribute from yesterday’s game ?
