Silver Mel

Mark Evanier's holiday story is a lot more magical than mine (see below). I first read this in his POV column back in 1999, and I've thought of it fondly ever since. It involves Mel Torme and his most enduring contribution to the American Songbook, "The Christmas Song" -- so enduring that many who know the song by heart have never heard of Torme. Read the story.
