The LP Spokane 6, "Happy Holiday" contains a version of "White Christmas" and "Adeste Fidelis" which the sleeve dates to 24 December 1944. In the absence of any other information one way or another (and the real expert, Lionel Pairpoint, seems to be silent on the point), for the present I am listing these as the performances which appear on the record. Valuable as the series is, the identity of tracks listed on the Spokane sleeves is frequently innacurate. I do not have a copy of this particular broadcast.
