The traffic growing increasingly chaotic, schizophrenic weather hanging over the city, and the sounds of bells ringing in the distance mean one thing: The holiday shopping blitz is about to reach a fever pitch. So once again Jeffrey Bützer and T.T. Mahony are back, performing Vince Guaraldi’s soundtrack to Charles M. Schulz’s 1965 animated television special, A Charlie Brown Christmas.
This marks year 11 for what has become an Atlanta music tradition. Bützer stopped by CL HQ for a podcast with Music Editor Chad Radford and writer Jacob Chisenhall about his love for Schultz’s Peanuts characters, his aversion to the music of the Beach Boys, and a decade spent wrapping his head around Guaraldi’s music while watching the audience grow and change.
