First 24 Hour Marathon Christmas Show of 2012 Starts Soon !!!

Alright girls and boys! Drake gets fired off tonight at Midnight Eastern! I hope to log into his chat a bit before retiring (then on in the background) for the night. Who's with me?

Robert Drake is back for the 19th year for his annual 24 hour Christmas marathon show "The Night Before on XPN".

Drakes show will began at 12 midnight Eastern on December 24. That means a six hour overlap with Jon Solomon on WPRB which begins at 6 pm on December 24. DAR.fm solves that problem!

Like Solomon, Drake will host a live chat and studio web camera.

From the webpage:


The 19th Annual The Night Before on XPN
24 Nonstop Hours on the 24th Day of December!
From midnight to midnight December 24, 2012

Robert Drake here excited to once again host The Night Before on XPN!

It was 19 years ago when WXPN came to me, with those puppy-dog eyes, hoping that I'd fill in on December 24. Seems no one was available, and in those days before digital, you needed a body to oversee any programming. So, I agreed - as long as they gave me complete freedom to spin an aural web of sounds of the season - direct from my collection of holiday tunes. What they didn't know was that I had already developed a fascination for Christmas songs. Not the burnt cookies anyone can hear up and down the dial in December. My collection was chock-full of unique nuggets - some not given the light of day for decades.

So, they agreed to give me three hours and I delivered. The three hours went to four - which went to six and then to twelve, to celebrate twelve years of tradition! In 2007 management asked what I planned to do to top my 12-hour marathon the previous year. I said, how 'bout 24 hours?! After checking my pulse and temperature - just to be sure I wasn't babbling under some illness - they agreed. So, for the last five years, I've been on the air for 24-nonstop hours.

And now I am doing it all again!

Make request on The Jingle Line at 215-573-WXPN

Actually Rhodes is already on! I forgot to convert the time zone! Phooey, I've missed the first thirty minutes!

I've got DAR.fm recording Dusty on WIND-AM from Chicago, IL. I sure hope they carry all 36 hours! Details about which stations are airing all or just portions aren't that great from what I've seen. I emailed one station listed at DAR that is running Rhodes and they confirmed all 36 hours. But, their feed is listed as unavailable when setting to record.

If anyone can, confirm here which stations are running all 36 hours. Just what little I've heard is impressive; not the tired Top-100!

Jon, I know WCNY-HD2 is a great feed for listening, and they will be carrying all 36 hours (at least they did last year). They're not on DAR

Thanks! I'm thinking WIND will play it all. I called them to verify but got an answering machine.

Jon Solomon is two and a half hours in. I've checked in at his chat. I need to get back into Robert Drake's again.

One is going in one room, the other in another. Both are being recorded by DAR.fm.

WCSF 88.7 Joliet, Illinois USA Still All Christmas !!!

How many folks that don't come in here at all will you see (anytime now) start moaning in other MMC forums about Christmas music on the radio drying up?

They will miss out because we here/hear know that WCSF is sill in the biz until Noon CST January 2, 2013!

Hands down, off all the radio stations that flip to all Christmas each year, this one has them beat to a frazzle!

All commercial free from Thanksgiving to January 2, 2012 with the widest Christmas playlist second to none of the others!

And of course with an online listen link that gets plenty of use at my house every year! -

Look 'em up on FaceBook too!

WCFS is back on for 2012 from Thanksgiving, November 22 through January 1, 2013! Trust me! That commercial "Official Holiday/Christmas Station" you are listening to is burnt toast compared to this!
