It's time for the Sixth Annual "Christmas/Holiday Radio Programming & Schedules" thread!
This thread will keep track of stations airing seasonal programming.
Many commercial broadcast stations will become “Your Official Holiday/Christmas Station” in November. Some may even start in October!
Likewise, many Public Radio Stations will air special programming for the entire holiday season, starting with Halloween and Thanksgiving themes. Personally, I like these type programs because they explore music other than the top 100 or so Christmas tunes that commercial broadcast radio wear out every year. (NOTE: these are RadioJonD's words from last year, but they match my own thoughts!)
As you learn of stations making the switch to all Christmas, post ‘em here. List the station call sign, frequency and city. Also be sure to include a station link, especially if they stream their audio online! Here are a couple of starting places that list as many all Christmas stations as they can:
(it's blank for right now, but hopefully soon...)
(includes broadcast and online stations)
Sirius XM and their associated Satellite TV channels should be included here too!
I’m hopeful that folks in other countries will research and post all Christmas radio/audio related content with station links so that we may partake! I still haven’t developed a method for researching sites such as BBC Radio of the UK.
Christmas music is going to start showing up on the airwaves more and more in the days to come, so let's talk about it here!
