You're welcome! Gotta take care of the cult! We need more members!

To further understand when, if and why radio stations flip to all Christmas music see the second post down (by Seltzer) from a radio forum: http://boards.radio-info.com/smf/ind...ic,154025.html

I think he’s on to something.

KESZ - Phoenix, Arizona USA

Also contained in the previous post’s link Seltzer says that KESZ in Phoenix, Arizona is going to all Christmas on November 1, 2009. We need a member in that area to confirm.

I didn’t see any mention of it on KESZ’s web page - www.kez999.com However, I did find that going all Christmas was a tradition on KESZ since 1996.

They made the 2008 list on November 8:

Over 2,000 Views!

Thanks everyone for well over two thousand views of this thread thus far!

Today is Monday so I would like to remind everyone to check their favorite station’s web page for anything Christmas related! Of course, we still have Halloween to get to at the end of the week. I expect next Monday (November 1) to be the first real start of the 2009 Radio Christmas Season. By mid month there will be more and then Thanksgiving (U.S.) will open the flood gates!

If you don’t check your station’s site daily, at least make a stop once a week!

This applies double to public radio stations because most actually publish a complete holiday schedule with a synopsis for each show! Post yours as soon as it hits!

Syndicated - “A Country Christmas” 2009

At the risk of a repeat (I quickly scanned the thread and didn’t see it), here is another of those syndicated shows that your local Country station may air this season.

http://www.cool-broadcasting.com/shows.html

According to the website “A Country Christmas” features fifteen songs an hour and country artists sharing Christmas memories, etc. The show runs twelve hours and is designed to play one hour a day leading to Christmas and/or all twelve hours together on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. 2009 marks seventeen years for “A Country Christmas.”

A sample begins playing from a player at the bottom of the page upon opening the website.

Be sure to check the public radio schedules included in this thread. (First two are just above with, hopefully, many more to follow!)

If you don't normally listen to public radio find one in your area and check it and their web page out - http://www.npr.org/stations/ Public radio stations carry unique programming, especially during Christmas.

Tell us where the station is and be sure to include a listen link if applicable. We especially need non US input!
To find a public radio station in your listening area, simply type your zip code (US & Canada) into the search window at http://www.npr.org/stations/ and find a station. Then find the station web page and start looking. Post your findings here! This will be where the more diverse seasonal programming is offered. Do it for the children!

IF ONLY BINGER READ THIS THREAD! Countdowns, while fun and interesting, AREN'T EVERYTHING!
