Christmas music was the theme of a couple of reports on ABC. Ron Claiborne brought us carols from the multicultural Boston Children's Chorus and David Muir had the temerity to compare this season's hit CDs--by TV talent show losers Susan Boyle and Jackie Evancho--with the stylings of Bing Crosby. What nerve! A couple of weeks ago NBC assigned Lee Cowan to the same Boyle-Evancho angle. In the interests of taste, or perhaps for reasons of copyright, Cowan's package was not posted on line as a videostream. I prefer to recall Cowan's Christmas music classic from last year, featuring the Jewish tributes to Jesus by Barry Manilow and Bob Dylan.
Dylan's Little Drummer Boy is disarmingly sincere.
