Toys For Tots
This weekend, both of Nashville's professional sports teams will hold their annual Toys For Tots drives. Saturday night, December 16, wives and girlfriends of the Predators players will be collecting new, unwrapped toys before the game against the St. Louis Blues. On Sunday, December 17, the Titans will give a free mini-poster of the team's wide receivers and tight ends to the first 10,000 fans who donate a new toy prior to their matchup against the Jaguars.
During the early 60's, Capitol Records had several of their artists record this jingle promoting Toys For Tots. In the last few years, these recordings have been popping up as bonus tracks on reissues of the artist's old Christmas albums. This medley of Peggy Lee, Nat "King" Cole and Nancy Wilson's versions is one of the hidden bonus tracks on the Christmas Cocktails CD.
