Remembering Jeanette MacDonald today and her older sister Blossom MacDonald Rock, who passed 13 years to the day as Jeanette, and is shown here in her most famous role as Grandmama in “The Addams Family.”
Today fans around the world can read for free (with Kindle Unlimited) how Blossom helped ensure her sister’s story was told… at this link. We will remember!
We just received word that this event has been cancelled or postponed due to Covid. Will update here if/when rescheduled.
Original press release at this link.
It’s that time of year again…what better holiday songs to listen to than Nelson Eddy’s. Listen… and enjoy!
Sadly, Jeanette MacDonald never recorded a Christmas album but we have one song she sang on a Christmas radio show.
And below, a reader comment sent to us:
Thank you for sending the links to the MacDonald/Eddy Holiday music. I NEVER get tired of listening to them.
They were my very first album I bought with earned money from doing ironing back in 1978. I would play their album on my stereo and do housework for my mother.
I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.
And again, I loved reading your book. I never had a clue they were lovers until then, but I kind of suspected it.
Sincerely, Karen Ritter
