Serenade Saturday: The Christmas Song by Rick Nelson

In lieu of the Christmas holiday, I present the classic 1956 song “The Christmas Song,” which was originally sung by Nat King Cole and then remade in 1964 by actor/musician/singer-songwriter Rick Nelson for ‘The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet.’

By the way, the blond toddler in the video is Nelson’s one-year-old daughter, actress Tracy Nelson, who is being held by her mother, Kris Harmon.

Actor Chris Meloni Purchases Former Ozzie & Harriet Home


I thought this was some interesting real estate news since I’m a fan of Hollywood history.

Actor Chris Meloni, best known for his television role on Law & Order: SVU, and his wife, production designer Sherman Williams, just purchased the former Ozzie & Harriet Nelson home in Hollywood for $5.25 million.

The home boasts a little bit of rock and roll history too since it is where the Nelson’s youngest son, Rick (“Ricky”), grew up…along with his older brother, David.
