Why yes, there will be original programming on the Northern Alliance Radio Network today! It's a special Christmas Eve edition of The Closer, which will get started at the usual 2:00 PM Central Time.
Despite a bevy of political news, I'm choosing to go with strictly a Christmas theme for the hour. For instance, how is it that a character named Santa Claus became the symbol for the season?
I also plan on taking a couple of segments to list my top 5 favorite Christmas TV specials from back in the prehistoric days when there was no DVR and no NetFlix. Yeah, when I was growing up, annual Christmas shows were by appointment only.
To wrap things up, I'll of course talk about Jesus being the reason for the season.
