voice one:

welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm barbara klein.

voice two:

and i'm steve ember. this week on our program, we play some favorite songs about winter.

(music)

voice one:

winter hits mount hamilton in san jose, california
it is winter in many parts of the world. for some areas, that means snow. maybe even lots of snow. if you do not have to drive in it or remove it, snow can be very beautiful. when snow covers everything around you, the world looks like a "winter wonderland." that is the name of a very popular song about winter. richard smith and felix bernard wrote the song way back in nineteen thirty-four. there are hundreds of recordings of this happy song. here is a lovely version by james taylor.

(music)

voice two:

but winter is not always such a beautiful and happy time. it is cold outside. the wind blows to make it even colder. you try hard to keep warm. the days are shorter and darker. the sun rarely shines. the leaves on the trees are brown or have fallen to the ground. the flowers are mostly gone. it is not surprising that some people are sad in winter. and some people dream about being somewhere else where it is warm and pretty -- like the state of california. the mamas and the papas recorded this famous song, "california dreamin'," in nineteen sixty-five.
