JOLLY ST. RICK

Sylvia Rhone, Rick Sackheim and Team Epic are spiking the eggnog to celebrate major holiday yardage by three records, two of them new (Meghan Trainor’s rendition of “White Christmas” and Mariah Carey’s “Oh Santa!” f/Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson) and the other a bona fide yuletide classic (Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You”). Trainor’s seasonal foray has been the #1 current song on Mediabase’s Holiday Chart for five weeks and is the top current song on the AC radio chart as well. Carey’s Xmas party with Ari and J.Hud has moved to #6 on the Holiday chart in a mere 10 days.

As for “AIWFCIY,” as Mariah’s eternally roasting chestnut is called for short, it’s the #1 song in the U.S. and the U.K. and, unsurprisingly, has been the overall Mediabase Holiday #1 for five weeks.

Rick would’ve provided a comment but he was busy checking to see if the sour cream in the back of his fridge was still good enough to put on his latkes.
