Our programming
Christmas music has always been an important part of the holidays at our house. American Christmas Radio exists to share our favorite music with you. We feature the best North American Christmas songs from 1935 to today with a few favorites from across the pond thrown in. From old favorites like Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Johnny Mathis, Tony Bennett, Barbra Streisand, Tennesse Ernie Ford, Andy Williams, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Doris Day, Burl Ives, Harry Belafonte and Nat King Cole to the rock and roll classics by Elvis Presley, Bobby Vinton, and the Beach Boys to the newer classics by Neil Diamond, Natalie Cole, Kenny G, Dolly Parton, Roger Whittaker, Vanessa Williams and the Carpenters.
We play also great Canadian artists like Anne Murray, Celine Dion, Loreena McKennitt, Sarah McLachlan and Michelle Wright without forgetting the newer artists like Hilary Duff, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Faith Hill, Josh Groban, Martina McBride and Mariah Carey. Another important part of our Christmas memories are songs from popular holiday specials like the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack by the unforgettable Vince Guaraldi Trio or songs from old Rankin & Bass television shows like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Year Without a Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman or Santa Claus is Comin' to Town.
Movie soundtracks are part of our program too like the wonderful John Williams score for the Home Alone movies or Alan Silvestri's Polar Express. Finally, we also feature sacred music from the Our Daily Bread ministries to complete our offering. Come and listen like you would at our house. We hope you enjoy the program!
We add new recent recordings every year from mainstream artists like Michael Bublé, Wilson Phillips, Annie Lennox, She & Him, Andrea Bocelli, Rod Stewart, Jewel, Idina Menzel, Darius Rucker, Renee Fleming, and more. Every year also, independant artists submit their songs to us and after careful selection some are added to our rotation and are enjoyed as old friends by our listeners for years to come. So enjoy the program and tell your friends about us!
