Hot 103 and QX 104 have also released their new Christmas CD, One Big Christmas, a 25-track CD featuring both original tunes and classic Christmas songs peformed by local and national recording artists. A sprinkling of the songs can be heard in our radio player, but you can get your mittens on the music from HOT 103 for just $10.

Santa will also be in charge of The Loudspeaker offering up a new sonic Christmas cookie every Thursday in December. Oldfolks Home's home will kick things off on December 16 with more to come.
