‘Tis the season for The Beatles Christmas Records Special

By now, most people know that John & Yoko’s “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” and Paul’s “Wonderful Christmastime” are necessary elements of any well-rounded seasonal playlist, but The Beatles‘ deeper Christmas cuts deserve their chance to shine, too. Keep an ear out for your visit from “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Ringo” this year and tune in to The Beatles Channel (Ch. 18) as Breakfast with the Beatles host Chris Carter plays some of the most memorable festive hits featuring the Fab Four.

Described by Rolling Stone as capturing “the band at their most playful,” The Beatles’ seven Christmas records – recorded each year from 1963 to 1969 and given out to fan club members – are stuffed with goofiness, merriment, and rarities like multiple renditions of “Good King Wenceslas.” Hear those during Chris Carter‘s one-hour special reviewing each Christmas record in deeper detail at the times below (all times in ET).
