For many, watching Charles Schulz’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is a holiday tradition.

In Atlanta, hearing keyboardist T.T. Mahony and drummer Jeffrey Butzer perform Vince Guaraldi’s soundtrack to the Peanuts special has become a tradition as well.

They stopped by the “City Lights” studio earlier this week and spoke with host Lois Reitzes.

Mahony played a few songs, and Butzer talked about his early memories of the holiday classic.

All-ages shows will be performed at 4 and 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at Kavarna in Decatur.

There will be performances for adults at the EARL on Dec. 20 to 22.
