WFNX To Air Oedipus' Christmas Eve Special

PHOENIX MEDIA Alternative WFNX/BOSTON will broadcast this year’s edition of the long-running CHRISTMAS EVE show hosted by legendary radio personality and programmer OEDIPUS. The show will again feature music from OEDIPUS’ collection of holiday music, along with other exclusive CHRISTMAS-themed surprises from the show’s host, its listeners, and even the occasional world famous rock star. For over thirty years, it had been a fixture on the station’s now-defunct former rival WBCN.
"CHRISTMAS came early for me this year," OEDIPUS said. "A BOSTON tradition lives on -- CHRISTMAS music heard nowhere else -- most appropriately on BOSTON’s heritage alternative radio station, WFNX."
WFNX VP/Operations MIKE TIERNEY said, "As one of OEDIPUS’ many friends and admirers, I was always aware of his CHRISTMAS EVE show and its loyal following. But until I started here this fall, I had no clue how much passion there was. Music lovers of all ages have been coming out of the woodwork, literally begging us to put it on WFNX. By the time OEDIPUS reached out to me, I couldn’t tell whether he was pitching me or if I should be pitching him."
The OEDIPUS CHRISTMAS EVE show will air without commercial interruption on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24th, from 6p until midnight.
