Is Santa Claus Coming Tonight?

Now for your holiday listening pleasure - "Is Santa Claus Coming Tonight?" by Rhonda Kay, released in 1962. It's a musical question that Rhonda poses with some convincing vocal styling, coming off something like a teenaged Connie Francis. But I think the call and response between Rhonda, "mommy" and "daddy" really seals the deal. Click to hear "Is Santa Claus Coming Tonight?"

I found this holiday gem at an antique store in Attalla (special thanks to Adam Lore for spotting it there) and have turned up exactly nothing about Rhonda Kay, the record or the Omar label it was recorded on. If anyone out there has any related information I'd be grateful to hear about it!
