Meanwhile, over on WBOI in Northeast Indiana, my old friend Rob Martinez gets to play Radio Santa from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time. You may know Rob by his Internet handle CaptainOT, under which name he has delighted and amazed obsessive Christmas collectors everywhere on his Christmas Yuleblog. I feel safe in saying that, had there not been a Christmas Yuleblog, there would have been no Stubby's. Now, I'm not willing to concede that Rob's library of Christmas music is larger than mine, but his is plenty large. And I will say, and have always said, that the man has more of the Spirit of Christmas in his little finger than I have in my whole body. He's a right jolly old elf, indeed, and I'm interested to hear what he can do on the radio. Rob will also be playing Radio Santa on Wednesday night (7 to 9 Eastern) and each of his shows will be segmented into themes--such as "Overlooked Christmas Songs", "Christmas With The Beatles" and "Christmas MashUps". You can "tune in" to--well, I'm just gonna call it "Christmas with the Captain"--by going to the WBOI web site and clicking on "Listen Live" (upper right this time and 89.1 is the one you want). (This paragraph has been edited to reflect that Indiana is in the Eastern time zone, not Central as I had originally thought.)
Now, later in the week, we'll get Jon Solomon's annual Christmas Eve marathon, but that's another story for another day.
