Aaaargh!! The Christmas carols have arrived!!

I'm at work and the local station has switched over to all christmas carols. It's not even 11:00 oclock and I've heard Paul Mccartney's "wonderful christmas time" twice already.

I am doomed!!

I have to admit, I love Christmas music, and look forward to the switch-over.

Gee, you started late. Due to work, I cross the broadcast area for 2 1/2 stations, one of which started the 8th, the 2nd started a week ago. The 1/2 is a station that at least 3 of the regular stations created to compet w/the traditional station. It's a low wattage station that will be gone the 26th.

As for the songs, it seems like this is the year of the myriad versions of "Baby, It's Cold Outside". I think I've heard at least 6 different versions.

Atleast your getting to listen to them. We don't have piped in music here, if you want it you have to have a radio in your office.

And steaming on line is a HUGE NO NO. While everybody upstairs has multipule channels they can tune in, us basement dwellers are left with 1 - ONE - measly station that comes in clear. And guess what they don't broadcast live anymore. Christmas songs. Starting last year, they only do Christmas via their internet feed.

I want my Christmas music!!!!!!!!!!!

I was listening on the way to work today. I love Christmas music but that song grates on me. Heard it already.

I think Sirius XM started last week. Ugh. Between the ridiculously early Christmas carols, the pre-pre-pre Black Friday Sales, the crazed mobs in the stores and the decorations up in the middle of October in some places, the Christmas season becomes longer and more unpleasant every year. My very favorite day of the holiday season is New Years Day, because that means it's finally all over.

Can anyone tell me why, with hundreds of years of songs from which to draw, we still wind up with basically 20-30 songs that get played incessantly?

Seriously. I found a station in Detroit on iHeart that seems to have more variety. Better than our local station!

I love christmas music. We don't 'overdo' christmas IRL (not a big family, not big shoppers, not big stress people) so I love me my christmas music time!

I once watched the Christmas Shoes movie. I did not realize it at first. If mommy was wasting her shoes when she met Jesus, how did the boy, now a man, end up with the shoes. Did Jesus throw those shoes back to earth or did momma kick them off when she saw them?

It's simple. The first radio station in a city to go all Christmas music always gets the biggest bump up in ratings.......and the station that sticks to the "classics" gets another bump up. People are funny, they complain about it, but if the radio stations mix it up, people tune out, they want the classics only.

Me, I have my Dr. Demento CD.

Our station started about a week and a half ago. I started listening over the weekend.

I am off work this week and love listening to the carols while I cook and clean getting ready for the holidays. It just gets me in the spirit knowing Thanksgiving is coming up and then we move into Christmas. It is my favorite time of year.

However, I wish they would stop playing the "shoes for Mama who is meeting Jesus tonight" song. I am trying to shampoo carpets and can't get much done while I am blubbering.
