Songwriter Hugh Martin, now 95, collaborated with Ralph Blaine on a holiday classic: "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." The song was made famous by Judy Garland in the 1944 film Meet Me in St. Louis. Since then, many different versions have been recorded with changes in lyrics. This interview first aired on Dec. 22, 2006.
