We're excited to bring you the 2nd annual Holidays on Highway 309 special, handcrafted by Ariele Jones.

This hourlong special, hosted by Ariele, is infused with the great music you're accustomed to on Highway 309, but with a holiday twist. This year, get holiday cheer from Langhorne Slim, The Pretenders, Anthony Hamilton, and many more.

Plus, WGLT and WCBU special guests drop in with their favorite holiday memories -- and their favorite holiday foods.

  • 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 15
  • 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 24

You can also listen on-demand here or just ride along on the Spotify playlist below:
