It was a very Goodyear

I've mentioned before that my Dad worked for The Kelly-Springfield Tire Company, a subsidiary of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. Beginning in 1960 Goodyear began offering Christmas compilation albums to their employees, so we ended up with several. Today's offering is volume 6, from 1966.

Thanks so much for posting volumes 5 and 6. These 2 albums would play in my house at Christmastime when I was young. It's so great getting to listen to them again.
