Campus radio star Wesley Hardin Johnson Jr., a Christmas buff in jingle bells mood at the beginning of the season, cheerfully offers to drive fellow student Megan, whose ride fell trough, home to New England and makes it an unforgettable fun voyage. Years later, she's a petty reporter at the local newspaper, which is being taken over so all jobs are at risk. He transferred home as California-vetted star to the city radio. They meet and she hopes to finally snatch the one boy she never forgot, as he had mysteriously left college before the next term, but he seems uninterested. Still she hopes to interest him by anonymously sending cheesy souvenir gifts, which he discards clueless, having mentioned the strange phenomenon his show, which actually bans all Christmassy elements. However their bosses get wind of the 'romantic mystery' and set them tasks requiring him to look for his unknown fan and her to report on the potential romance.
