Harry Wagner's Off the Wall Christmas Special


The late Harry Wagner was a WYEP DJ from the late’70s into the early ‘90s, known for championing punk and new wave on his radio shows when they were new styles of music. Harry “The Wire” (as he was nicknamed by members of the local music scene for his tireless enthusiasm for music) was also known for his extensive collection of offbeat Christmas music, and he would put together WYEP specials of “Off the Wall” holidays tunes. As the final event of WYEP’s 40th anniversary celebrations, we have created a new Harry Wagner Off the Wall Christmas Special from archival recordings. Hear Harry Wagner as DJ on WYEP one more time, and celebrate both the season and WYEP’s history in one unexpected hour of music.
