NORAD Tracks Santa - Christmas 1968

This single eluded me many times in the past but after some deep searching online, I found a collector who was selling this for $4.

Granted this isn't as elaborate as the famous NORAD Track Santa album from 1964 but it's still fun to hear the United States Government get in on the Christmas fun by trying to convince kids that Santa's coming.

Dating back to 1955, the folks at Colorado Springs, Colorado take time out of their busy schedule of watching radar screens for enemy bombers or missles to track the flight of one "S. Claus" every Christmas. Their website will be up in December and you can watch Santa's flight online.

Happy listening...
