The event kicks off WKAR’s “Home for the Holidays” – a six-week period of seasonal specials for adults and children alike. Between November 16 and New Year’s Day, WKAR will offer 25 seasonal broadcasts, plus specials from regular WKAR series.

WKAR Radio will also offer special programs during the holiday season. A new weekly series highlighting “just-released” classical music, “What’s New at WKAR,” premieres Friday, December 7, at 2 p.m. The show will be hosted by Peter Whorf, WKAR Radio station manager. The December 14 and 21 editions of the program will feature new holiday releases.

In addition, WKAR Radio will also broadcast a radio version of “MSU’s Home for the Holidays.” Regular Sunday night folk programs, “The Folk Sampler” and “The Thistle & the Shamrock” will feature holiday music on December 23.
