I did mention Miller, and I considered the Andrews Sisters. I also 
considered Calloway, but doubt if he's that much known today, apart from 
his voice on "The Jungle Book", along with Phil Harris and Louis Prima. 
We would also have to consider Cliff Edwards ("When You Wish Upon A 
Star") and Val Rosing ("Teddy Bears' Picnic"), even if few would know 
their names today. Mel Blanc's is still a famous voice, but again few 
would recognise his name.

Composers who wrote Christmas songs (Berlin's "White Christmas") and Mel 
Torme ("The Christmas Song").
