Everything you need for the 25-Hour Holiday Radio Show.

December 24th, 2015

Watch Jon Solomon slowly fall apart in real time during his 25-Hour Holiday Radio Show between 5:00 pm ET on Christmas Eve and 6:00 pm ET on Chirstmas day using the above webcam.

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.

The 2015 Xmas Playlist will be updated throughout the program at wprb.com.

Expect a new “Christmas Story” each hour, 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!

Live listener chat below these words:

MERRY CHRISTMAS! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
