If you catch it on your local station, follow along with this convenient cue sheet
From the webpage:
The 100 Greatest Christmas Hits of All Time with Wink Martindale is a 10-hour radio countdown of the 100 best-loved Christmas songs, with insightful stories behind the songs and interviews with the stars, plus bonus tracks and special features.
What are the all-time favorite hits of Christmas? What inspired them, who made them famous and why has hearing them every year become a popular tradition? This 10-hour special counts down all of your favorite Christmas hits from Number 100 to Number 1, based on Billboard charts and radio airplay over the last decade. Every Christmas evergreen is here, from the past and present, upbeat or sentimental. It's a portrait in sound of your favorite music, magic and memories. The stories you'll hear are funny, moving or outrageous, but all are unforgettable.
So if my local station doesn't pick it up, I'm out of luck - well they won't, but as long as it has a "listen live" link, I can pick up most stations on the internet.
