What is your favorite holiday movie of all-time, and what is your favorite all-time holiday song?

Frankie V, KSSX: A Christmas Story is the must watch every year! My favorite Christmas Song is “Dominick The Italian Christmas Donkey”, which just happened to be my college Frat pledge name.

Reid, KZZP: Christmas Vacation. Leroy Anderson “Sleigh Ride” and “Dominick the Donkey” by Lou Monte.

Java Joel, WAKS: A Christmas Story. Some of the filming locations are right here in Cleveland, including the house and exteriors. They do tours and have a museum and gift shop across the road. Pretty cool. Song? “The Christmas Song” by Nat “King” Cole is the perfect Christmas song. Merry Christmas!

Alex Tear, Y100 / iHeartMedia Miami: White Christmas is #1 with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye along with Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. I have tie for song: Bing Crosby “White Christmas,” and Dean Martin “Let It Snow.”

Fish Boy, WKRZ: The movie has to be The Muppets Christmas Carol. I grew up on the Muppets, I absolutely love them! “Old Lang Syne” by Dan Fogelberg.

Rick Vaughn, Power 94.9: The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”

Chris “Hollywood” Mann, WERO: It’s A Wonderful Life, and Nat King Cole “The Christmas Song.”


Jimmy Steal, Power 106: Family Man. “Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy” David Bowie & Bing Crosby.

Gina Gray, WERO: Elf.  “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole.

Kobe, WWHT: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, “Last Christmas” by WHAM!


Josh Reich, WB Records: Die Hard.

Mase, WWCD: Trading Places. It’s a tie between “Father Christmas” – The Kinks, “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)” – Ramones

Kevin Kash, WIYY: Bad Santa. Favorite holiday song (tie) – “12 Pains of Christmas” & “Christmas Eve Sarajevo.”


Chase Daniels, WMHX: Home Alone (I’ve seen that movie way too many times for a Jew). Dan Folgelberg – “Same Old Lang Syne” (Dare you not to listen to the words and not feel for the dude!)

Kobi, WNRW/WLGX: A Christmas Story. The Temptations “Silent Night” and Wham! “Last Christmas.”

Rich Davis, KDWB: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989), Band Aid “Do They Know It’s Christmas.”

Erik Bradley, B96: ELF and Four Christmases and Mariah Carey “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (shocker!).

Bob Patrick, WXLK: A Christmas Story. “Christmas In Hollis” by Run-DMC.

Matt “MJ” Johnson, KUDD: Definitely has to be National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, that is the jam. For the song, Andy Williams “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” which always puts me right in the holiday spirit, and for close second it would be “Sleigh Ride” by The Ronettes.

Jon Zellner. iHeartMedia: The movie is It’s a Wonderful Life, and it’s a toss-up for the song between “Sleigh Ride” by The Ronettes and “Last Christmas” by Wham!

Jonathan Shuford, WRVW: I love the original The Santa Clause with Tim Allen. I’ve never been a big fan of holiday music so I have nothing there.

Heather Deluca, WSJO: Movie is Charlie Brown Christmas, even though that’s technically considered a Christmas ‘special’. Favorite holiday song is “Holly Jolly Christmas” by Burl Ives.

Jeff Hurley, WHKF/WLAN: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” by Bing Crosby.

Chris K, 106.5 The End:  A Christmas Story for movie, I don’t think I can do better than that, and for song it would be “Last Christmas” by Wham!

Bailey, KTCL: Elf!!!  Favorite holiday song – There’s so many…but “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” “It’s the Most Wonderful time of the Year,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” and of course, “The Chanukah Song!”

Brian Michel, iHeartMedia/Atlanta: Holiday song: “The Chanukah Song” by Adam Sandler.

Terry Stevens, WOZZ: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. We all have a Cousin Eddie in our family. Holiday Song – “F**k Christmas” by Fear.

Max Volume, KOZZ: WKRP in Cincinnati‘s Thanksgiving episode. “As God as my witness, I thought Turkeys could fly!”

Jammer, B97: Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. Mariah Carey “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

Joey Brooks, WHYI/WMIA: My favorite holiday movie is Home Alone. I still crack up laughing every time! I love Bruce Springsteen’s version of “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town” and turn up the radio every time that one comes on.

Brian Mack, WXXL: Movies: Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, Scrooged. Songs: John and Yoko “Happy Christmas,” Paul McCartney “Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time,” Band Aid “Do They Know It’s Christmas,” Bing Crosby “Christmas in Tulagee,” U2 “Baby Please Come Home.”

Chris Michaels, FM100: A Christmas Story is my favorite holiday movie. My favorite all time holiday song is “Wonderful Christmastime” from Paul McCartney.

John Kuliak, Lava Records:  It’s A Wonderful Life…never get tired of it. Trans-Siberian Orchestra – “Sarajevo”…one of the greatest rock songs/arrangements/performances of all time!

Reed Phillips, Sun Media-Paducah, KY: Miracle on 34th Street, hands down THE BEST one out there. Plus it has to be the original, none of this remake B.S.
Normal holiday song – Barenaked Ladies – “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.” Non-traditional song – Ben Folds – “Bizarre Christmas Incident.”
