With some radio stations gingerly switching formats over to Christmas music perhaps it is time to start making that holiday programming list.
Envision Networks is fast out of the gate with “The 100 Greatest Christmas Hits of All Time,” hosted by Wink Martindale. Updated for 2015, it’s a 10-hour countdown show with 12 minutes per hour of commercial time, in three four-minute breaks.
A release explains, “Updated to include music from this past year, “The 100 Greatest Christmas Hits of All Time” 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.”
Besides the tunes, from the famous artists, not covers, there are also commentaries from artists along with stories and commentary.
