The Christmas classic “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” is our ‘Tickets @ Two’ song today by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Andy Williams[/lastfm]. It was written in 1963 by Eddie Pola and George Wyle, and was recorded that year by Andy Williams for his first Christmas album, The Andy Williams Christmas Album.

However, the song was not released as a promotional single by Williams’s label, Columbia Records,  that year.

The song has since become a seasonal standard, attaining more popularity with each passing holiday season since it’s release. It was also selected as the theme song for Christmas Seals in both 1968 and 1976.

When we play “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” between two and three be caller # 5 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5785) and you’ll win two tickets to Pacific Symphony’s “Andy Williams Christmas Spectacular,” at the OC Performing Arts Center!
