The Nights Before Christmas http://wboi.org en The President, The Comic, and The Man in the Santa Claus Hat http://wboi.org/post/president-comic-and-man-santa-claus-hat <p>In the early&nbsp;1960s, comedian Vaughn Meader recorded a satirical album in which he poked some gentle fun at President John F. Kennedy. He wasn't the first person to imitate a sitting president, but Meader was the first to add such a satirical bent to his work. It was ground-breaking at the time, and his first JFK recording,&nbsp;<em>The First Family,&nbsp;</em>became the fastest-selling album in U.S. history up to that point.</p><p></p> Mon, 23 Dec 2013 13:18:04 +0000 Sean Bueter 24549 at http://wboi.org The President, The Comic, and The Man in the Santa Claus Hat
