Christmas Carol Requests

Whether you’re young or old, Christmas carols are music that everyone can listen and relate to.

WHIZ’s AM 1240 has been playing your favorites this holiday season since the day after Thanksgiving. Most of the songs you’ll hear are classics, but Radio DJ Brenda Larrick says people usually call in requesting some oddities

"One of the favorites that makes me laugh every single time is ‘I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.’ Of course, we get requests for ‘Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer.’ The non-traditional songs, and you’re never hear ‘Blue Christmas’ until you’ve heard Porky Pig sing it-let me tell you," says Larrick.

Larrick says there’s something about hearing a Christmas carol that brings out special memories of family and friends.

"This is a great way for me to reach out to the listening audience and be able to share holiday music as well as help them get into a more festive mood…to get them into a more giving spirit. I really enjoy that part of my job, " says Larrick.

The holiday music on AM 12-40 will wrap up after today.
