This short story from the collection Wild Child was originally published in Playboy.
It’s the middle of a snow storm, and Johnny Bandon, a washed up crooner inthe style of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, is getting ready to record aChristmas single. The session musicians are there, and so is his backupsinger. Darlene Delmar is a down and out soul singer ravaged by cheatingboyfriends and STDs. But for this one moment in time, maybe music can reach outand soothe both Johnny and Darlene’s souls just one more time.
