Radio: To Santa

The curly, cherubic Moylan Sisters, Peggy Joan, 5, and Marianne, 7, are radio veterans (two years) who chirrup in close, cricket harmony Sunday afternoons over NBC for Thrive, a dog food ("We feed our doggie Thrive, he's very much alive-o"). Last Sunday Peggy Joan and Marianne put their brown heads together and told the world just what they wanted from Santa:

When I wake up Christmas day

I would like to find a sleigh.

But if I don't, dear Santa Claus,

I will not complain, because

What I really want is this . . .

Fill our land with peace and bliss

From Maine down to the Isthmus.
