OMG is it xmas already??? Where did the rest of the year go?

 

LoL

 

To me, I would play xmas tunes maybe a week before, coz everywhere you go someone is already playing it and it can get a bit repetative. it can get a bit repetative. it can get a bit repetative. it can get a bit repetative.....

 

Oh the joys of hearing Slade one more time followed by Roy Wood!

 

(Both of which I bought the 12" versions of back in the 80's, only so I was playing a different version from everyone else) hahaha

Honestly, and this is my opnion:

 

There's one station down here with an Alt. AC Format that has already started XMas music, and it really drives me nuts hearing it this early....our station does a 48 hour special Christmas Eve and Day, before and after those days, that kind of music doesn't exist on my station....

 

I'm just not much for the holidays, but I give our listeners the right to be happy, that's why those two days have special music

We start the say after thanksgiving, but keep it on the low end, then each week add more to our hourly playlist culminating with a full 24 hours of it on Christmas eve and Christmas day, only to remove all of it the day after Christmas.

We pretty much do what Bigloo does, but we're waiting until December 1st. We'll start off slow, and progress to a full slate of Christmas music and programming on Christmas Day. The day after, it all comes down, and back to regular music and programming.

I am honestly not sure whether my station will be playing christmas music. This my station's first christmas, so I cannot rely on what I did last year like u guys. Probably not since it is an urban station, and plus the day after christmas my station is changing names to 99.9 The Beat and will be down christmas day to prepare for the name change so it isnt like i can play the christmas songs on christmas day only. I still have not officially decided what i am gonna do though about the christmas music.

GKRadio Europe starts also the day after Thanksgiving, even the project is European orientated, but the project gets a lot of visitors from the US continent.

 

The XMas music is playing random every X-tracks and is located at a directory outside of the general playlist

so you .. and Me also :) never know whats coming up

but with the XMas promos this works out very well

 

The XMas promos has 3 categories : wishes made by artists, fun XMas edits and Santa Claus shouts

 

We start Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving

Visit and listen @ BW !

At the station I manage we started November 30th (All Christmas). We know there are some that tune out in December, but we also know there are many more who tune in who don't normally listen because they want Christmas music. Truth is people listen differently than we do. Doesn't mean I have to be deeply enthused about 100% Christmas, but it hits an audience who appreciates it.
