“What we try and do is broadcast a family-friendly holiday broadcast that everyone can listen to and get involved with,” says Executive Producer & Host, Joel Michalec. “When the staff work on the extravaganza we all like to imagine that families are gathered together and listening through the Internet or on a smart device. We program this show according to that nostalgic vision.”
During the show, which would normally run for three hours, special guests such as representatives from NORAD Santa Tracker and even Santa Claus himself appear. Other elements of the broadcast include Christmas music, original holiday content, sharing of holiday stories and the Toll Free phone lines are open to callers all night to share with the panel.
“Everyone on the staff has input to the show and content,” says show producer Rich Hall. “Much of the content that is added to the show is very traditional and much of it pulls from memories of our youth. It’s a very good time.”
On Monday December 24, 2012 the network has another tradition for Christmas Eve; each year it airs the original December 24, 1939 broadcast of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” as performed on radio by Orson Wells and the Campbells Playhouse. Certainly not least, is the presentation of 36 Hours of Christmas as the network will play constant Christmas music Christmas Eve into Christmas Night. This is just another example of the deep traditional roots on display by the staff of WBTM Radio Delaware.
