If I were to tell you I was planning a Christmas Eve special for WNCO-FM and was to select a co-host you might guess any number of potential guests. My wife Kelly, former WNCO-FM personality, would be an excellent guess. Or perhaps my grandchildren. Another good guess, but no and no. My co-host for this Christmas Eve special is Ashland Mayor Matt Miller. Whaaaaaat? It's true and yes it made no sense to me either. The Mayor of a fabulous small town and a local radio announcer. We run in different circles but we do cross paths now and then. Miller is a regular studio guest stopping in to give us updates on City of Ashland business. It was during those conversations we came to realize we had similar tastes in music and pop culture. Once we started talking about Ashland's big holiday plans we knew we had in common a love for all things Christmas.
It dawned on me that asking the Mayor to join me on the air could turn out to be fun. It's going to be so much more than that. We'll be talking about and playing all kinds of Christmas music, ranking holiday movies and TV specials, sharing Christmas memories and family traditions, and waxing nostalgic now and then. Oh and what you'll learn about Ashland's Mayor! Listen and find out, for example, what music legend once paid a visit to Miller's childhood home. Which brightly colored Christmas decoration is Miller a big fan of? What are his favorite Christmas movies and TV specials and we'll even play his all-time favorite Christmas song. There's so much more. You'll even learn some things about me that you may not already know.
Listen in to some, or all, of Christmas Eve With Matt & Matt this Friday from 7pm to Midnight on 101.3 WNCO.
