R.I.P. Mitch Miller
R.I.P. Mitch Miller, creator of my favorite Christmas album of all time, which was also abused in this context:
“In 1993, when David Koresh and members of his Branch Davidian cult were holed up in their compound in Waco, Tex., F.B.I. agents tried to flush them out by blasting ‘Sing Along With Mitch’ Christmas carols.” -New York Times
