It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! SiriusXM The Message (Ch. 63) has been busy this season bringing you lots of exclusive programming to get you in the Christmas spirit.
Right after Thanksgiving, we were the first radio outlet to ever broadcast Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant’s legendary annual Christmas concert. This one, from Salt Lake City, Utah, also featured The Voice winner Jordan Smith. Listen HERE.
Then, our very own Doug Hannah sat with the guys of Tenth Avenue North to walk through every song of their new Christmas album, “Decade The Halls, Vol. 1.” A unique take on the Christmas album, each track is done in the style of a different decade, from the roaring ‘20s through modern day. Listen HERE.
Of course, no Message Christmas is complete without our annual visit from the king of Christmas music himself, as Michael W. Smith returns for a ninth year to host Christmas on The Message. This year, he begins Saturday, Dec. 23 at 9 am and goes right through Christmas Day. As always, he has lots of help from other Message artists like For King & Country, Amy Grant, MercyMe, tobyMac, Lauren Daigle, Hillsong UNITED, Francesca Battestilli, Chris Tomlin, Casting Crowns and many others. Listen as it happens by clicking HERE.
Of course, while we wait for this weekend, you can always listen to our nonstop hand-picked playlist of Message Christmas music On Demand HERE. The Christmas Message playlist features a whole lot less “Jingle Bells” and a whole lot more “Joy To The World.” It truly celebrates the reason for the season!
