Jon Solomonís 24-Hour Holiday Radio Returns To WPRB On 12/24!
Mark your calendars, set the clocks: Jon Solomonís 23rd Annual 24-Hour Holiday Radio Show is coming soon! The marathon begins on Friday, December 24 at 6:00 PM ET and ends Saturday, December 25 at 6:00 PM ET.
Itís not Christmas without Jonís annual holiday marathon. Seriously! From the absurd and bizarre to the beautiful and almost-kinda-holy, Jonís show traverses the terrain of holiday music. No two marathons are alike, and perhaps thatís why listeners both near and far flock to the radio and/or webstream. So says Inside Jersey
Forget the Bing Crosby-Nat King Cole-Mariah Carey loop that seems to air on every station in every mall Ė Solomon mixes covers of traditional hits with songs by bands from the region, recordings lost to attics and basements, and esoteric picks like ďMr. Russian, Please Donít Shoot Down Santaís Sleigh,Ē a Cold War-era number. Which is not to be confused with ďCan Santa Miss Those Missiles,Ē Solomon says.
Jon wants you to know that if you would like to make some requests, by all means get in touch
