Christmas in July

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been offline for almost a week now during my recent move, due to a technical glitch I hadn't expected. Thanks to Corey for keeping the home fires burning with his great Song of the Week column about "What You Don't Know."

I'm working on some exiting new posts with guest interviewers and interviewees, but, in the meantime, let's keep the show rolling with this recent find, the earliest J5 press clipping I have found to date. It mentions an appearance by the Jackson Five at a Catholic hospital during the Christmas season in 1966.

I wonder what they sang...


  1. Man O Man what a cute find! It's so nice to have a J5 post to greet me in the morning, Welcome back. This blog is sheer class.

  2. Yeah, it may have been the only time the J5 shared a billing with Santa Claus.

  3. thank you J5Collector, what a find!

  4. Hi, J5 Collector,

    I found another early J5 press clipping here:

    And this is even earlier than the 1966 one!


  5. Wow, nice job, Vivian, we should collect up all these things into an archive!
