According to vocalist Joey Nash, writing in the 1970s, this was the very first recording of Winter Wonderland which is now considered an enduring seasonal classic - and it came very close to never having been made. Nash first learned of the composition from a fan who happened to be the brother of lyricist Richard Smith. After seeing a handwritten manuscript and listening to a home made recording of the song, Nash discovered that its publisher had pretty much forgotten its existence. Nash introduced the song on one of Himber's radio broadcasts and it was scheduled to be part of the band's October 23, 1934 Victor recording session. Because of technical difficulties, the recording session fell behind and time ran out without the song being recorded. Himber himself had already left the studio. Nash felt very strongly about making the record and persuaded his fellow band members to stick around a bit longer. The band agreed - but on the condition that it would be a one-shot deal and if anyone made a mistake that would be it.
