Gold, Frankincense and Mayor!

Steve Lord and Sue Taylor will be live in the studio on Christmas morning from 10am. Ron Berekeley will be entertaining patients and staff in the Live From The Bridge Christmas Special from noon.

The Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Gerry Ellis, records his Christmas Day programme with Dave Harvey

This year the Mayor of Wirral is one of the stars of the line-up. Cllr Gerry Ellis will be playing an hour of his favourite songs on Christmas Day at 2pm.

The peninsular's top dignitary will be explaining why the tunes are special to him and sharing some of the memorable events from his Mayoral year so far.

There's plenty of gold too - with classic hits from former BBC Radio One presenter Gary King in the Totally 80s Christmas Special from 4pm.

Listen out for Clatterbridge's Greatest Bits of 2012 on Christmas Eve as Andy Bonner recounts some of the station's best outside broadcasts from 2012.

Dave Harvey will be celebrating a half century of the 007 films on Boxing Day at 2pm with 50 Years of Bond.

New Year's Eve wouldn't be complete without the 2012 Request Chart. Paul Johnston will count down the most wanted songs of the last twelve months from 4pm.

And the Jingle Belles, Natalie Kelly, Bethan Meredith and Holly Youlton, make their annual return to the airwaves from 4pm on New Year's Day.
