For the first time since 1996, Wyatt Cox was not contemplating another go at his annual “Christmas On The Radio” syndicated program. Indeed, when I checked his web site at various times for inclusion in this thread, it had not been updated with any 2009 content.
Well, according to a radio blog to which I subscribe, Cox is back! When quizzed about the show from several folks, Cox relented and went into the studio for another syndicated version of the show.
“Christmas On The Radio” is twenty-four hours worth of Old Time Radio. Stations may air the show as a whole or broken down into one hour segments mixed in with other programming.

WCSF has a fairly decent mix of traditional and some of the overlooked gems of Christmas music!
USF Celebrates the Holidays with 24 Hours a Day Christmas Programming!
One of the area’s finest holiday traditions, the Spirit of Christmas-holiday music, commercial-free, 24 hours a day from Thanksgiving Day, November 26 through January 2 - will again be presented by WCSF 88.7 FM, the student-run radio station at the University of St. Francis.

My 2009 Christmas Radio Listening/Recording Schedule
I certainly hope that readers of this thread are taking advantage of the unique Christmas programming offered by public radio. Indeed, many stations, including my local Alabama Public Radio station, are already underway with special seasonal sounds! Consult your schedule today and don’t miss out on some great choral, orchestration, etc. programs!
As we head into the weekend, now is the time develop our listening/recording schedules!
Generally, the weekend before Christmas is when locally produced public radio shows will contribute their Christmas offerings. Again, consult and share your local schedules, especially if an online listen link is available. The national shows get all the attention, but local shows often go unnoticed except by local fans.
For this weekend (December 18, 2009) and the week leading to and including Christmas Day, here are my personal recommendations. Online listen links are included where possible.
The Bone Conduction Music Show Christmas Extravaganza (baby)!
A reminder from Thayrone X:
It happens once a year. It's a birthday party. It's THE BONE CONDUCTION MUSIC SHOW CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA! Don't miss it, fool. Sunday, 7pm...you ain't NEVER heard Christmas music like this before. Featuring the ghost of Bob Hope, Ann Margaret, Duane Hickman and The Bone Conduction Music Show dancers. And that hot chick the color of mocha latte from Bay Watch, can't remember her name right now. And make sure you stick it in your iPod. It's even better in July poolside. I ain't lyin', if I'm lyin' I'm flyin'. And I ain't flyin'. This coming Sunday 12/20, knock a Christmas hole in it. Book mark it, write it on the wall: www.thayrone.com Be there!
Happy Birthday Jesus!!! And thank you for all that you do,
