This year, as WETN, Wheaton College’s FM radio station, continues its annual tradition of broadcasting the area’s widest variety of Christmas music, “Uncle Lar’s Christmas Attic” also returns to the airwaves.
Now in its 11th year, the program is hosted by Dr. Larry Eskridge. Eskridge, associate director of Wheaton’s Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals, is volunteer Christmas music director at WETN and the source of most of the 2400 Christmas songs it broadcasts from November to January.
This year, the program will air on December 1, 8, 15, and 22 from 3-6 p.m. Each show will be rebroadcast the following Wednesdays from. 7-10 p.m.
Each show is organized around a theme. Upcoming programs include a sampling of new Christmas releases, to air December 1 and 5; Christmas songs from movies and TV, airing on December 8 and 12; top Christmas hits through the years, airing on December 15 and 19; and a collection of unconventional yuletide fare, airing December 22.
