Listen up, aspiring producers and seasonal music lovers alike! We're nearing Christmas time and with the enormous amount of jolly classical holiday tunes available to choose from, CBC Music wants your help producing a few hours of radio on Christmas Eve for a special show called All I Want For Christmas.


Airing on CBC Radio One and CBC Radio 2, host Katherine Duncan will share all of your favourite classical Christmas music to make your festive night. All you need to do is send in your request for carols, concertos, symphonies, whatever you can think of and make sure your specific in terms of the particular recording of the piece.


In addition, tell CBC Music a little bit about yourself and the reason for your choice. Give a holiday shout out to someone, share your favourite holiday tradition or even what you want from Santa this year. It doesn't need to be much, but just enough so Katherine can share something about you during the show.


Need inspiration? CBC Music has two live music streams - Classical Holidays and Seasonal Favourites - that can help you find the perfect Christmas song. Or, you get started by checking out this version of the classical holiday song O Holy Night sung by Mother Mother on CBC Radio 2:
