"Tanner Total Sound Library" 3418, 1977
Five more days (Deck the Halls)

Four more days (The First Noel) An odd new-age-like arrangement, before new-age was invented!
Three more days (Jingle Bells)

Two more days (Joy to the World)
One more day (We Wish You a Merry Christmas)
And now, the rest of the tracks on the record:

"Gifts for Super Guy" (Compare the Tanner Total Sound Library tracks from 1968 to this one, and you'll see how things have changed musically.), "Gift for Lovely Lady" (How come Super Guy gets "gifts", but Lovely Lady only gets "gift"?), "Key to Toyland", "Lay-away Right Away", "Santa Claus Day"

Tanner "Country and Western" 4209, 1977
One More Day (Jingle Bells)

Two More Days (Oh Come, All Ye Faithful)
Three More Days (Oh Christmas Tree) I love that strange phrasing - "You've only..."
Four More Days (Joy to the World)
Five More Days (Silent Night) Did they speed these guys' vocals up?
Six More Days (It Came Upon a Midnight Clear) Now, this record's starting to live up to the name "country".
Seven More Days (Deck the Halls)

Eight More Days (Oh Little Town of Bethlehem)
Nine More Days (Away in a Manger) Notice she sings something else besides just how many days till Christmas!
Ten More Days (Hark, the Herald Angels Sing) An unusual arrangement with a sus4 ending.
Eleven More Days (The First Noel) A Danny Davis-style arrangement.
Twelve More Days (We Three Kings)

Thirteen More Days (What Child Is This) "You've only..."
Fourteen More Days (We Wish You a Merry Christmas) And in contrast to the last one, "Ya got..."
Fifteen More Days (Jolly Ol' St. Nicholas)

"A Christmas Rose" - Dick Kent, 1978
From the world of song-poem heck comes this thing. Don't worry about petty things like how we're supposed to believe the "singer" character followed both the kid and the man to their home, and just let your heart be warmed - or whatever.

Reel 1, side 1
Over an hour of continuous Christmas programming!
Reel 1, side 2 At this point, the person recording this "got wise" and cut off all talking except for one ID.
Reel 2, side 1 Like the last side, this one also just keeps one ID.
Reel 2, side 2 Continous programming! Whoever-it-is was nice to us this time!
