On Christmas Eve eve at 10 pm the Thursday night Jazz Odyssey host Dele has curated a set full of soulful and funky renditions of Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanza songs, holiday-inspired Hip-Hop, and R&B originals, and wintry chill-hop beats.

On Christmas Eve beginning at 4 pm, Arturo Gómez will sub for Rodney Franks and present the magical music of Christmas in all of its splendid varieties: classic songs from the past and present, big bands, trios, vocals, and a touch of Latin jazz. During the final hour beginning at 7 pm, Arturo will share his annual Santa’s bag of exclusive obscure songs ending with Louis Armstrong’s reading of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, Pops final recording!
