Six years ago, Rob Martinez was interviewed by WBOI’s then-program director Andrew Anderson for a segment on his hobby collecting Christmas music. The interview was the springboard for all of his shows that have followed to now.
“My specials didn’t even have a title back in 2011,” says Martinez. “I didn’t even have a Facebook page for the show until 2013!”
Each December since, Martinez has created an average of five hours of original Christmas programming.
WBOI is proud to present for the sixth consecutive year unique holiday music specials produced by Rob Martinez, host of "The Movie Music Spotlight", and owner of one of the largest private collections of Christmas music in the United States.
"The Nights Before Christmas" will be broadcast on two nights this December with a different theme for each episode. WBOI’s Rob Martinez is back for the sixth consecutive year with his unique Christmas music show “The Nights Before Christmas”. He’ll be playing holiday music with themes like Songs To Wrap Christmas Presents By, Christmas Sinatra Style, and a theme 108 years in the making - A Chicago Cubs Christmas.
The 2016 schedule:
Wednesday, December 14th - 9 PM to 11 PM
Friday, December 16th - 8 PM to 11 PM
