Community Radio Show To Showcase The Holiday Spirit

COLUMBUS, OH, Nov. 21, 2011- “The DJBC Happy Hour”, a locally produced talk-variety radio show in Columbus, will ring in the holiday spirit with several themed programs over the remainder of 2011.

“There will be four new shows, and an encore presentation of an older show in the five Mondays leading up to Christmas,” said show host and executive producer Bryan Curtiss.

The Nov. 21 show, entitled “I’ve Got Plenty to be Thankful For: Buckeyes and Wolverines” celebrates Thanksgiving and the greatest college football rivalry- The Ohio State-Michigan football rivalry, in anticipation for the latter matchup on Nov. 26 in Ann Arbor.

“Lampooning the greatest rivalry in all of college sports is going to be the highlight of the Thanksgiving show,” Curtiss added. “I’m not going to just predict the game, I’ll going to refer to the game all over- with comedic skits, and there will be skits for both Buckeye and Wolverine fans, because I want the show to be inclusive.”

There will be no new episode on Nov. 28. Instead, “Deck the Halls, It’s Christmas In July” will be re-aired instead to introduce new viewers to a popular earlier installment.

“With the Thanksgiving holiday, I felt the need to take a week off, and instead air a show that I did in July with the classic ‘Christmas in July’ theme,” Curtiss added.

The Dec. 5 show will feature classic holiday tunes that are not heard on mainstream commercial radio. The Dec. 12 show will feature some spoken holiday word.

The Dec. 19 show is going to be based on an experiment that Curtiss came up with.

“The last show before Christmas will be picked on by the listeners. This will get more listeners to not only this show, but to WCRS as a whole,” Curtiss said.

The theme for that show will be holiday songs from a decade (in the 20th century), that the listeners will get to vote upon for two weeks, starting on Nov. 28.

“The DJBC Happy Hour” originated at WOBN-FM at Otterbein University from 2008 to 2009. The show was revived for WCRS in April 2011, and celebrated its six-month anniversary on the show’s Oct. 17 installment.
