Christmas traditions on Boston radio

Well, through the 80s into the 90s, Oedipus (the PD) and Tony Berardini (the
GM) would take over the WBCN studio on Christmas Eve and do a live show
playing Christmas requests and some of their own favorites.  It was a
gift-wrapping tradition for me.

Also, we can't forget WRKO's "Christmas Wish" campaign through the 70s/80s
where listeners were urged to give to make the Christmas wishes of those
less fortunate come true.

My favorite Christmas sound bite might just be the music to WRKO's
Londonderry Faire ad where the singers do a "La La La La La..."-thing and
Dale Dorman would chime in with his falsetto.  Hysterical.
