WEXT for the Holidays 2023-style

holiday image 2023

The holidays are a special time to spend with family and close friends. WEXT has brought together our traditional holiday programs and special days. From our "Acoustic Christmas Day," 24 hours of acoustic music perfect for the day to Darwin's Very Retro Xmas, The Best Christmas Ever and our friends the Will Kempe's Players and their rendition of "A Christmas Carol" that has been updated with a new cast recording for 2023. Spend your holidays with WEXT!

Our annual countdown of the biggest WEXT songs and Local 518 songs of the year will play back in countdowns on New Year's Day. And we always ring in the new year with a special night - the Rock N Soul New Year.

Happy holidays to you and your family.
