Christmas Tree Radio

I'm hardly a celebrity, I'd put me in the ELF Worker class!

Yes, I like your Live 365 station, just heard Lou Rawls "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". That's a great version of the song!

I have to sit on this thread each year or I would start it too early. February? Wow!

Not that we are in any competition to you, but check out our own Merry Christmas Radio on Live365.

Thanks for the tip on the 2009 loop!

Thanks for that, I just put it up a couple of weeks ago. I've been so tunnel visioned on the actual show, that I don't always "market" it as well as I should. Plus the 2 songs..whew!

You've got a winner there Randy.

I'm like a rock most of the time and I'm suddenly feeling quite puddly (new word) after hearing that. It'll become more famous than The Christmas Shoes. You can quote me on that!

Gary Berkowitz On Holiday Music: Think About January

Here is a very interesting piece about radio stations switching to all Christmas.

An industry consultant is cautioning stations not to make the switch too early in 2010. The article contains a good lesson about understanding ratings and revenue or the lack thereof.

Wonder if you're local station will bite?

Of the thirty-six posters in the 2009 Schedule thread, only twelve can now access this area of MMC. Of the twelve, only three posted more than once in the thread. I know that folks from other forums came over here for a look as well. Iím sure none of them can now see this.

Iíve always wished for more participation and contributions in locating and posting schedules and listen links to unique Christmas radio programming. Those of you that know me well recognize the OCD that comes over me in developing a personal listening and recording schedule. Iíve always hoped to find someone with which to trade ďair checksĒ but havenít.

Also, part of the enjoyment of these annual threads is using the ďwhoís on lineĒ feature to see guests looking at the threads. Of particular satisfaction is seeing guest IP addresses from the very stations I listed! I caught at least three last year with one being a regular! As I understand, guests wonít be able to look in anymore.

Everyone able to contribute this year is very much encouraged! Check for your local commercial station by listening and/or clicking on this link. http://www.100000watts.com/specials.asp However, I am really most interested in unique public radio programming and hope that you will check local stations for their schedules and report in here!

As always, I look forward to seeing what I miss. However, without mass appeal most of the luster for me is dissipated. Iíll post Alabama Public Radioís and other selected other public radio station schedules when they become available and I find them. Again, feel free to beat me to the post! Radio schedules arenít ever in any kind of guide like TV programs. Thatís why I issue the yearly request.

Iíll also post when my top five or so favorite radio shows will air their seasonal shows.

As for commercial stations that make the 100000 watts list, Iíll leave that for others. There will be plenty of stand alone threads for these too. Plus I expect there will be a lot in the free forums this year.

The stations near me are merry downers. They rarely play Christmas music all day, a few don't play them for all of Christmas Day. I'll look around the GTA stations South of me, but from what I've heard most of them play Christmas tunes for an hour here and there, but don't play it exclusively "during the season". I'll see if I can dig anything up.

Guess I could toss them an email to ask them why they aren't switching, I'm sure I'm not the only local wondering why we're still hearing the current music or the stuff from the 80's instead of Christmas tunes. Sadly, that's why I turned to internet radio stations.

The article touched on the realities of the business of listeners. I guess they have the STATS to back it all up. I don't know anyone who actually listens to the ads on the radio, it's just like ads on TV, people talk through them or switch to another channel and then back again.

I'd like to hear the music play into mid-January rather than have it all slam down on Boxing Day. Locally, I'd like to hear it for at least a full week.

Another radio counsultant, Dan Vallie, seems to have a different view of stations going all Christmas. Check this article.

Maybe it is just me, but seems like commercial radio stations are struggling with the decision of if to go all Christmas and the timing to start if they do.

From what I've read in commercial radio forums/boards and public radio equivalents, the holiday season isn't so easy for them.
