Santa Herb: A Christmas Eve tradition

Captain Herb Emory loved the giving spirit of Christmas and he loved children. So this may not surprise you to learn that he combined those two energies every Christmas Eve for many years.

Captain Herb and his wife Karen would take time out of their Christmas trip each year to call into WSB and converse with WSB’s youngest listeners.

The Emory’s and Buzzy the Elf would answer kids’ calls and Captain Herb in his best Jolly Old St. Nick voice, would hear their wishes and have them sing songs to everyone. Then he would promise them Christmas cheer, if they went to sleep and were good.

Listen to their last Christmas Eve special from 2013 and hear Captain Herb’s wonderful rendition of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Put it on, pour some hot chocolate, gather the kids around, and enjoy the spirit of Christmas. Captain Herb would want you to do that. Merry Christmas from all of us at WSB!
