Dear Santa: What I want for Christmas is just one seasonal special that isn’t set around the fireplace, where we don’t see fake snow and hokey homecomings and sweaters on everybody, where they just shut up and sing. Please? [Signed] Jeff

Dear Jeff: If you hadn’t been such a nasty boy to so many shows this year, I might have given you a slicker special. But this will have to do. Johnny sings some of his great rockabilly ditties; so does Jerry Lee Lewis. Johnny shows some neat old film and doesn’t wear a sweater. So I don’t want to hear you kvetching that some of his nice relatives can’t sing too well. Be nice—or next year, I’ll give you Christmases of the Rich and Famous. Put that in your stocking and stuff it. [Signed] Santa
