WHERE: The Message, SiriusXm 63

WHEN: Saturday, December 24, 6:00 AM through

All times ET

The Message has brought Michael W. Smith to Message listener's homes for the past two years and the new Christmas tradition continues! Michael loves the Christmas time of year and the music that goes along with it so much that over the last two decades he has performed hundreds of Christmas shows and released three Christmas albums.

Who better, then, to share his music, his stories and his family's favorite Christmas music? "Smitty" himself will be your Christmas DJ delivering music and stories, including songs from all of his Christmas albums. Plus, like all Christmas traditions, they're not nearly as meaningful unless they're shared with others. This year, Michael invites his friends from the elite of Contemporary Christian music to each contribute a story and a song to the mix.

Among those joining Michael for 2011 are Brandon Heath, Steven Curtis Chapman, NEEDTOBREATHE, Natalie Grant, Tenth Avenue North and several others.

Even if you don't have a subscription to SiriusXM, you can still listen online or on your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android or Blackberry with a 7 day free trial. Go to or more info, go to, or visit their Facebook page: twitter @HearTheMessage
