A few days ago we posted an historic moment captured during Bing Crosby’s 1977 televised Christmas special. David Bowie was Bing’s unlikely guest and, even more odd at the time, was the singers performing an original pairing of ‘Peace on Earth/The Little Drummer Boy’. This duet has now joined the ranks of classic traditional Christmas tunes.
In 2010 Will Ferrell (as David Bowie) and John C. Riley (as Bing Crosby) presented their version of the classic. The two comedians perform a beautiful rendition of the song and if you’re looking for laughs….wait until the end!
Sorry we have no music from Will Ferrell or John C. Riley (do they record?) but we have Christmas music from the 60s, 70s & 80s all season long on Dusty Discs Radio.
