Festive requests? Call 609.258.1033 or email requests@wprb.com!

Listen at 103.3 fm WPRB or by clicking here.

Real Player and Windows Media Player options can be found on the right side here.

If you’re in the terrestrial broadcast radius, tuning in via an actual radio is preferable so as to not keep those far away from accessing the web stream.

Expect a new “Christmas Story” each set, with older stories interjected frequently.

You can follow Jon on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Advance notice for each story should occur in both of those social locations and on the invite for the marathon.

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #wprbxmas!

The entirety of my 12.3.14 radio show (save a Game Theory song and a Real Numbers tune) was a conversation with Tom Scharpling of The Best Show. It streams above.

I forgot to take a picture while Tom visited WPRB so the above December 2010 shot will have to do!



25-Hour Holiday Radio Show on WPRB!

December 1st, 2014

Hello December!

I wanted to give several weeks’ warning that I will be celebrating the 26th annual edition of my 25-Hour Holiday Radio Show on 103.3 fm WPRB / wprb.com starting this Christmas Eve at 5:00 pm ET until Christmas day at 6:00 pm ET.

If you would like to submit music for airplay or make some requests, by all means get in touch.

Please also read the the public call for Christmas stories I posted a few weeks ago.

You can RSVP for the show on Facebook.

The studio webcam and live listener chat will go live here come the afternoon of December 24th.

Thanks.

Happy Holidays (eventually)!
