WYTZ Z95 would go commercial free Christmas music from drive time Xmas eve until the next morning. I have a mostly unscoped aircheck of it from 1986. Their regular rotation was Elmo & Patsy, Band Aid "Do they know it is Christmas", The Beach Boys "Little Saint Nick", Bobby Helms "Jingle Bell Rock", Bob & Doug "12 Days of Christmas", Bruce Springsteen "Santa Claus is coming to town", Brenda Lee "Rockin around the Christmas tree" and Madonna "Santa Baby".
Outside of Bruce Springsteen and Band Aid, I do not remember what B96 would play in the 80s and 90s!
WXXY 103.1 The 80s Channel I remember Run DMC "Christmas in Hollis", The Waitresses "Christmas Wrapping", Bobby Helms. I think Jeffrey T Mason would be more able to fill in the blanks here as I do not remember much more.
