The holiday season kicks off Friday in Chicago with the return of the annual Christmas music marathon on WLIT 93.9-FM. The news was announced via tweet from the station’s program director/host Mick Lee, and in a report from media columnist Robert Feder.
The music starts at 4 p.m. and plays non-stop through December. It’s the 20th year for the special programming.
