Although we’re on air on Newstalk ZB for 18 hours across Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, there are some parts of the show that shine a little brighter - and this section really sparkles.
We’d love to share with you: “A Dolly Parton Christmas Eve Special”, written and hosted by John Cowan. This show will air live and nationwide on Newstalk ZB on Christmas Eve from 11:32pm, but you can hear it anytime in the next seven days by clicking this link.
Dolly Parton has sold more than 100 million records and has won 11 Grammy Awards from 50 nominations. Now aged 75, Dolly has been writing and performing Christmas music her whole life.
John takes listeners on a fascinating ride through Dolly’s life starting with her humble roots growing up in a one-room cabin on the banks of the Little Pigeon River in Tennessee.
Dolly has a beautiful Christian faith which she talks about enthusiastically - and which is expressed through her music, and her love of the Christmas season.
We hope you enjoy listening. Thank you for making this show possible, and many others like it, through your generous support.
