Cab Calloway's Letter to Santa, 1944

Hi De Ho Ho Ho!

During the Xmas season of 1944, bandleader and jazz legend Cab Calloway took out the full-page ad space shown below in an issue of Downbeat magazine.

It makes perfect sense to me that he and Santa would be on a first-name basis.

It's just a shame that a wishful war-time sentiment is still sounding appropriate this season.
