There seems to be a poll going around.....
Changed the article because there were today a lot of visitors searching for the title of the b-side of Elmo & Patsy - Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.
Don't know if the poll is still going round but it's time to give some (not all....) deeper background info about Elmo & Patsy.... ha ha.
Veterinarian Dr Elmo Shropshire and wife Patsy Trigg Shropshire enjoyed a "side" career as a comedy-bluegrass duo in California clubs before becomming annual holiday celebrities with their surprise hit record of 1984 Grandma Got Run-over by a Reindeer.
The couple had actually been pushing the single since 1979 before Epic Records picked up the single as a novelty number and the record went gold. Making millions for Elmo & Patsy and it's writer Randy Brooks.
Elmo & Patsy eventually made 4 albums together before their divorce, but never reaching the success of Grandma.... Dr Elmo continued his Veterianary practice until 1995.
Now in his 60s, Elmo has remarried and owns a large rural estate in California (which serves as home to about a dozen wild deer) established Laughing Stock Records and hosts his own Dr Elmo website and annual Christmastime radio show.
