Since Alabama Public Radio will carry most of the nationally syndicated special programming and I am familiar with their schedule, I will try to capture all the below scheduled shows in Note that some shows are repeated. I won't attempt to maneuver timers around those.

APR doesn't include them in the special programming schedule, but their are some really neat local shows on the weekend. Most, if not all, will spin Christmas tunes in season.

Saturday, December 21:

7:00 PM - Bama Bluegrass (2 hours)

Sunday, December 22:

5:00 PM Getting Sentimental Over You (1 hour)
6:00 PM The Crooners (2 hours)
8:00 PM Jugs, Jukes and Jazz (2 hours) Generally host, Tom Halladay mixes Christmas tunes into the music. However, in 2012 for the first time, the show was all Christmas.

If you see a show from any of the listings not on the APR schedule, let me know so it can be added.

I'll also issue the final 2013 request for folks to dig around public radio schedules in your area (or anywhere else for that matter) and post schedules. Again, the locally produced shows are usually the best shows!
