For years I only remembered bits of this special, but I also remembered how heartwarming it was. It was about how a Jewish congregation decided to help there Christian neighbors by that over their jobs on Christmas eve, so the Christians could have the evening off. I remember clearly Howard Gould volunteered his son, Barry Pearl, to take Wolfman Jack's place as DJ for the evening. Then his son who didn't want to be be volunteered, didn't show up, Gould himself took over, But the son, after hearing his dad's disc patter, decided to come down and do the job himself. I also remember a couple taking over a local pub, where the regular customers loved the Christmas stew that was always served. But an accident happened, and they only have a small amount of it. But the wife recognized the stew as some Jewish dish and made replacement stew and everyone was happy.
I would really like to see this special again, especially around Christmas. Maybe Halmark will finally release their old specials on DVD. I can only hope.
