Dates Announced for Rob Martinez's "Nights Before Christmas"

Dec 5, 2013

For the third consecutive year, WBOI will present unique holiday music specials produced by Rob Martinez, a station volunteer and owner of one of the largest private collections of Christmas music in the United States.  

Three specials will be broadcast this December with a different theme for every half-hour segment.   Some of the themes will include Christmas disco, Modes of Christmas Transporation, an NFL Christmas, Christmas Obesity, and Christmas Blues.  

One of the themes - Christmas Music of 1963 - will feature one of the rarest singles of all time.  Due to the timing of the song's release, it was never broadcast and thought to be lost forever... until Rob found a copy and purchased it earlier this year.  It makes its world premiere on WBOI - you don't want to miss it!

The 2013  schedule: 

Friday, December 20th - 8PM to 11PM 

Monday, December 23rd - 8PM to 10PM

Tuesday, December 24th - 8PM to 10PM
