Available on a cash basis, this special holiday programming will count down everyone’s favorite Yuletide hits from 100 to number one. The song list is based on data compiled by Billboard Magazine and listings of the Christmas tracks most played on radio over the past decade. This compilation includes hit singles as well as classic tracks from the most-loved and best-selling Christmas albums of all time.
The Yuletide special includes holiday music from the goodtime gold (“Holly Jolly Christmas”), the sentimental songs (“I’ll Be Home For Christmas”), and the deeply romantic (“Merry Christmas Darling”) to the beloved carols (“Silent Night”) and the Santa/Rudolph/Frosty fantasy favorites (“Santa Claus is Coming to Town”). The songs span the years from 1942 (Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas”) through today (“We Need a Little Christmas” by the cast of “Glee”). Wink Martindale supplies the story and fun facts throughout the 10-hour broadcast. Plus, hear insightful commentary from the hit-making stars themselves
