Trivia

In recent years, The Yule Log has been digitally re-mastered and fully restored. In 2001 the original film was color corrected and cleaned. In 2003, the Log was up-converted to High Definition and PIX now airs The Yule Log in HD. In 2006, to celebrate the Log's 40th anniversary, Lawrence F. "Chip" Arcuri and Joe Malzone, the creators of theyulelog.com, restored the audio of The Yule Log and in 2009, with the assistance of "Chip" Arcuri, PIX11 added a new fourth hour to the program, including 23 classic holiday songs. The fourth hour leads off with Mantovani's interpretation of Adeste Fideles, a classic that aired on the Yule Log in the late 1960s; now restored back to the program. The new hour adds 9 artists including Bert Kaempfert, Mitch Miller, Bing Crosby, Vic Damone and Johnny Mathis. See more »

Best of the season!
20 October 2004 | by (NJ USA) – See all my reviews

It's not Christmas at my house without the Yule Log! I remember as a boy, living in Jersey City--no fireplaces here-watching the log & listening to the great music every Christmas Eve. The Log would be a background for my family's Christmas celebrations, as well as giving us excellent holiday tunes while we were opening presents. I was saddened when it was pulled from the air (during the 80's?), but was amazed when I found a great group of "loggers" online the past few years. The past few years, the log has returned due to overwhelming demand. Some might say it's corny, but to me, it's not Christmas without the WPIX Yule Log. Hopefully they will have it on again this year!
