The Christmas Eve Yule Log with Carl Sabatino™
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 15, 2008
The syndicated broadcast program, "The Christmas Eve Yule Log with Carl Sabatino™," a production of The Christmas Channel™, the RadioASB Network and TC Productions, long a hallmark of the Christmas Holiday season on the Internet and select radio stations across the country, will air for the first time as a simulcast for both radio and television syndication.
Hosted over the years by national radio and television personality Carl Sabatino, "The Christmas Eve Yule Log with Carl Sabatino™, " returns to the air December 24th on the Internet at RadioASB.com and a host of broadcast outlets across the country as a simulcast broadcasts with it's unique and heartwarming Christmas medley featuring a kaleidoscope of musical moods from recognizable stars and emerging artists, blended with special listener dedications, family well wishes, acknowledgements and messages of Holiday cheer to those in places far way from home.
"For a number of years, our listeners, especially those tuning in on the Internet, have asked for a video broadcast. The decision was made to make this a simulcast for terrestrial radio, television, cable and Web TV . . . I'm delighted to make this special broadcast available," shares Sabatino. He adds, " . . . The Christmas Eve Yule Log broadcast has always been about the true meaning of the Christmas Holiday season, a time of caring, of giving, and of peace. Over the years, with the coalescing of distinct Holiday season celebrations for commercial purposes, we have lost much of the meaning of this precious time of year."
Once again, emanating from New York City and TC Production's famed Studio Seven, the 6-hour program runs continually without commercial interruption from 4:00 to 10:00PM EST Christmas Eve - with a repeat broadcast from 10:00PM to 4:00AM EST Christmas morning.
"Much of the Christmas music we play, as I have noted over the years, by both established and emerging artists is not heard very often, if at all, any longer on standard terrestrial radio stations during the Christmas Holiday season . . . our broadcast continues to play this special music and it includes, as always, Christmas stories, Holiday greetings, dedications and well wishes from and to listeners worldwide," explains Sabatino.
The musical lineup includes standards and the traditional Christmas songs of: Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nate King Cole, Rosemary Clooney, Perry Como, the songs of Andy Williams, Karen Carpenter's classic "Merry Christmas Darling," The Harry Simeone Chorale, Jewel, Bobby Darin's bittersweet rendition of "Christmas Auld Land Syne," the Beach Boys and Simon & Garfunkel's haunting "Seven O'clock News/Silent Night." The Christmas medley; however, also includes new Christmas music, such as Paul Hampton's acclaimed "A Perfect Gift," the music of songstress Jane Monheit, the rarely heard "It's Christmas Once Again," by Frankie Lymon and the Christmas music of emerging artists such as Katia Klein and Michelle Parto. Christmas music of jazz artists continues to be heard from the likes of: The Manhattan Transfer, Sarah Vaughan, the Vince Guaraldi Trio, Frank Ascone, Alex Leonard, and unique melody's such as the solemn "Carol of the Advent" by the Canterbury Choristers, Christmas country music with Suzy Bogguss and others . . . as well as contemporary artists such as Kenny G, Boys II Men, Sarah McLachlan, Joan Osborne and Mariah Carey.
With years of Christmas Eve broadcasts behind him, Sabatino says, "The Christmas Eve Yule Log has always been a special broadcast remembering a time, and a place when Christmas was more special . . . it is all about embracing the spirit of Christmas, and it's meaning in a time when we need this special Holiday celebration more than ever." He continued, ". . . it's heartwarming to note that because of the Internet and the 21st century wireless world a good number of young adults, and teenagers have found The Christmas Eve Yule Log broadcast the place to be with family on Christmas Eve."
