All American of the Week:
     Ron Lundy - Midnight - 6:00AM, Tuesday-Saturday

SPECIAL NOTES:  The Derrik Roberts single was added as a Hot 
Prospect, rather than as a Christmas add, as it was a new release.

The album cut this week is from the album, "Rubber Soul."

Additional Christmas music was added on Christmas Eve through 
Christmas Day (when only Christmas music was played).  The songs 
on this week's Christmas Music list were played on or before 
Christmas Eve.
