We want to share the spirit of the season with you and have “come a-caroling” radio style! It all started one morning when we piled our staff into the performance studio, set some mics, and pushed record.  This is truly a homegrown, homemade holiday edition of Highway 89 from us to you. And though the packaging may not be fancy (host, Don Shelline’s voice was nearly gone) the sentiment is sincere. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
