Elmo Shropshire - a.k.a DR. ELMO

"Grandma Got Run Over By  a Reindeer"

Dr. Elmo is best-known for his recording of "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer. The Christmas classic is the most-requested holiday song of the past two decades and it has secured its place in American pop culture and made Dr. Elmo the king of comedy carols, selling more than 10 million copies since it was first broadcast by a San Francisco radio station in 1979. When MTV began airing the campy video of this stranger-than-strange holiday song in 1983, it surpassed Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" on Billboard's Christmas charts. The song and its singer were off to the races. His distinctive voice led to castings and voice-overs in national advertising campaigns.
