Gene Mueller and friends find the Christmas spirit at WTMJ's annual live holiday show, playing on the radio for the first time this afternoon.

LISTEN: WTMJ finds the holiday spirit in "The Night Before Christmas" radio show

Last month, the 620 WTMJ radio team took the stage at the Turner Hall Ballroom for its annual live Christmas show.

But don't feel despondent if you missed it, because starting this weekend, you'll be able to hear their goofy holiday good times on air.

"The Night Before Christmas" will hit airwaves for the first time on Saturday, Dec. 15 at 4 p.m., telling the story of "Wisconsin Morning News" radio host Gene Mueller hosting the company Christmas party only for things to go wrong with a snowstorm, a whole lot of testiness between coworkers and nowhere near enough drink to get them all through it.

Along the way, all sorts of special guests and friends of TMJ make appearances – from YouTube sensations to beloved local businesses to even the culture editor for a certain Milwaukee arts and entertainment website.

Best of all, the show benefited Kids2Kids Christmas, an annual charity drive from WTMJ and Kapco Metal Stamping which aims to not only provide toys to children who may not otherwise receive any this season but also teaches the gift of giving to children on the other end. So not only is "The Night Before Christmas" a good time, it's all for a good cause.

If you miss today's on-air debut, the radio show will play again on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
