Wanted: XMas Radio Spots

Santa Claus (1959) coverAs some of you know, people who do Halloween compilations/mixes occasionally will use old radio commercials for horror movies as filler or breaks between songs/sets. These radio spots frequently came out on 45's and were 30, 45 or 60 seconds long.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians coverOf course the number of movies that would be appropriate for a Halloween mix far, far exceed the number of Christmas movies and are therefore much more available. In fact, other than a reference to some Christmas Vacation (@ Amazon) promo material, I can't remember seeing anything for us to use ... like I'd love to get the spots for Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (@ Amazon) or Santa Claus (@ Amazon) or any movie that would fit a Yuletide mix for that matter. So if you know where to find some, drop me a note in the comments with the URL(s).
