Well, another Christmas and end of year is upon us once again. Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who reads this blog, who follows the Facebook page, my Twitter handle, and who has taken the time to leave a comment or drop me a message about something they read that sparked their interest. Go Retro had its best year yet--with increased traffic and new fans. Now that I'm on vacation, you may be seeing the tired banner get some swap outs with updates as I experiment to see what looks and works best for a new look. 

To wish you all happy holidays, I have a special treat. The video below came from my friend Greg over at UMRK Radio (and BTW, Greg hosts a super-duper swell retro radio show occasionally--check out the link if you love those old school radio shows that you remember from the 60s, 70s, and 80s!) It's the Twelve Days of Christmas featuring products that were advertised in the 50s and 60s--be prepared for a LOT of Ford custom built station wagons and Libby's fruits and vegetables!

Have a happy and safe holiday season! Here's hoping 2013 brings us all everything we ever wished and hoped for!


  1. Merry Christmas Pam! Your blog is a joy to read. So happy to have discovered your blog and you! Have a lovely holiday with your family my dear. Hugs and best wishes for 2013! :)

  2. Pam-- Have a wonderful holidays... and thank you for your labor of retro-love for us retro-fans!!

    Happy holidays!!

  3. Fred Claus has its moments. C'mon, the Brother of Celebrities Support Group scene? Roger Clinton crying?

    But for the most part, yes, the Christmas special has died. Sad too. The Christmas episodes of regular TV shows were always the best (along with their Halloween shows). Seems like every show had their version of A Christmas Carol. I would love to someday, if it hasn't already been done, to compile a list of all television shows and their Christmas-themed episodes.
