History of Classic Christmas Radio Theater

When Wyatt Cox moved to Las Vegas in 1996, he was faced with the challenge of making his radio station stand out in the crowded big-industry scene. Most stations either ran reruns of their stations regular talk shows or played the same Christmas music as every other station.

With the help of a number of collectors of old time radio friends he assembled a 10 hour radio special that aired in Las Vegas for two years. When he left the station in December of 1999, he built on the concept adding a variety of programs and commentary to an 18 hour package that was syndicated to a handful of stations.

Classic Christmas Radio Theater continues to be Family Friendly spoken word programming.  Classic Radio programs featuring some of the biggest names in entertainment of the 30's to today.  Comedy, Drama, Suspense, the entire spectrum of Old Time Radio is new again to today's radio listeners.  It's the perfect Christmas show for stations with a Spoken Word format.
