The idea of creating a longform Christmas special for radio began in 1969 when Jim Hampton was the Production Director of the legendary icon, the BIG 89 WLS-Chicago. The idea was to give the air staff the day off. Thus, began the first longform Christmas program, a tradition which has now become standard for radio stations across the USA.
An Original Christmas is designed to play on almost any formatted station, including NewsTalk. In fact, this year NewsTalk 760 WJR in Detroit is making An Original Christmas the centerpiece of their Holiday programming where it will air Christmas Eve and all Christmas Day.
