The summer is in full swing but for Rob Martinez, the calendar always reads Christmas.  89.1 WBOI's resident holiday music expert wanted to celebrate the month of July with a special one time version of his show "The Nights Before Christmas".  This special airs on Tuesday, July 7th from 8 PM to 10 PM.

"We've watched our Facebook page explode with new likes since January," Martinez said.  "It's gone from 150+ likes to over 450+ in less than six months.  I really wanted to do a show for these new potential listeners so they don't have to wait until December."

WBOI's Julia Meek met with Tarango earlier this week, to discuss what he calls his "Christmas crazies."

Find out where Fernando Tarango is performing this holiday season at his website.
