An Invitation from Wink


The 100 Greatest Christmas Hits Of All Time is an award-winning ten hour radio countdown of the 100 best-loved Yuletide classics featuring insightful story-behind-the-song interviews with the stars plus bonus tracks. Hosted by the incomparable WINK MARTINDALE, the special is broadcast annually in more than 175 countries around the world!

Every form of Yuletide evergreen is here, from the good-time gold (Burl Ives’ “Holly Jolly Christmas”) to the sentimental songs (Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas”) … the deeply romantic (The Carpenters’ “Merry Christmas Darling”) to the beloved carols (The Temptations’ “Silent Night”) and the Santa/Rudolph/Frosty fantasy favorites (Bruce Springsteen’s “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”). There are million-sellers and more galore – a portrait in sound of YOUR favorite music, magic and memories.

Each song is spot-lit with the story behind it. Beloved radio and TV star Wink Martindale, supplies the fun facts, augmented by insightful commentary from the hit making stars themselves, such as Paul McCartney, Clint Black, Bing Crosby, Mariah Carey, The Eagles, Elvis, John Lennon, Nat “King” Cole, Garth Brooks, Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton and many more.

The time is now to line up your holiday programming for 2018 and create valuable sponsorship opportunities with “The 100 Greatest Christmas Hits of All Time.”  Three four-minute commercial breaks pop up in every hour – providing a total of 12 minutes of commercial avails in all 10 hours for you to place with your local advertisers.

Beloved radio and TV legend Wink Martindale hosts all ten hours, counting down everyone’s favorite Yuletide classics – both hit singles and key tracks from the most popular Christmas albums ever – from 100 to 1.  Along for the fun: a few surprise “bonus tracks” plus special features to warm your listeners’ hearts.

This ten-hour special counts down from Number 100 to Number 1 every single one  of your favorite Yuletide hits – based on data compiled by Billboard Magazine over the years as well as other sources – such as listings of the Christmas tracks most played on radio over the past decade. Our listings include not just hit singles but key tracks from the best-loved (and best-selling) Christmas albums of all time.


“Everyone loves Wink!  His Christmas Music special covers the big holiday hits, and offers a few new takes on the classics as well. It’s refreshing.   Our personalities enjoy the time off, sponsors get great branding, and the listeners enjoy it.” Bill Sheridan, program director/brand manager, WODE-FM Allentown-Bethlehem, PA/Connoisseur Media
