Once again, WMSE is looking forward to providing the perfect soundtrack to your holiday season; WMSE Music Director Erin Wolf has pulled thousands of hard-to-find and rare holiday hits for our DJs to comb through and either craft an entire show of festive music or liberally sprinkle the good cheer throughout their playlists.

Here are some of the holiday programs already ready to go and make sure to keep it tuned to the Big Sound Downtown throughout the holiday season for some big holiday tuneage you won’t hear anywhere else!
