Christmas Carol Returns!
We have a new “Christmas Carol” this year – it’s our own afternoon star, John Carroll (get it? – John Carroll? Heh, heh!). Beginning Monday, December 12th, John will play a special Christmas classic each afternoon between 3:00 and 6:00. When you hear it, be caller number three at 483-BEAR, and you’ll win a nifty prize! How will you know what song to listen for? Listen to our Morning Coffee program that day between 6:00 and 10:00, and Todd VanDyke will tell you.
Our prizes come from Calumet Floral and Gifts, Sayen’s Auto Ziebart, the MTU Campus Bookstore and University Images, Superior Tax and Accounting Services, and Harter’s Party Store and Outdoor Sports Center.
