Saturday, December 22nd, 11am - 1pm

Michael and co-host Gaylord Fields will disregard station rules (and common sense) as they light a yule log in WFMU's studio and welcome some radio friends to drop in and share some favorite Christmas music, discuss current holiday plans and memories of Christmases long ago. 

Bill Mac fills in for Joe McGasko- A Countdown to Christmas Party Time! 
Monday, December 24th, 9am - Noon 
on Zzzzzzero Hour with Bill Mac 

X-Mess time is a coming, so grab yourself a plate of reindeer and a shot of whiskey and tune into Bill and Maxine’s Christmas Special, featuring the usual blend of somewhat forgotten classics of the Golden Era of Christmas as well as playing some old favorites. 

War On Christmas Soundtracks II 
Tuesday, December 25th, 7pm - 8pm

Saturday, January 5th, 2019, 11am - 1pm 
on Michael Shelley's show 

Dennis Diken drops by the studio to spin some records and talk about the history and the future of The Smithereens. The band formed in Carteret, New Jersey in 1980 and is still going strong despite the passing of lead singer Pat DiNizio in December of 2017. We’ll hear tales of the road, recording in The Capitol Records tower, the making of MTV videos and the band’s upcoming plans.
