So were there any other stations that went "Christmasy" back on July 25th?!?
I haven't gotten wind of any others, KWasser.

Listening to KQLA from their listen link is all Christmas. When I recorded KQLA via DAR.fm a total different non Christmas station plays. While I was disappointed, the music was/is a quirky mix that I found quite appealing! The DAR station identifies as KQ-Lava.

I did manage to manually record (via Adobe Audition) a couple of hours (?) of KQLA Christmas for my Christmas music archives.

Just found out WJSJ 105.3 in Jacksonville is playing Christmas music I'm guessing their changing formats but I'm enjoying it while I can .

A quick google search shows that to be a Latino station. Is it playing Latino Christmas music? That'd be unique...

Bankruptcy receivership.

WJSJ isn't in the DAR.fm station list. Really no point in adding it right now either. Hopefully there is an oline listen link at the station webpage (The page is blocked for me at work). If so, i'll record a couple of hours with Adobe Audition from home.

From Radio Insight:

WJSJ Brings Christmas Fun In Jacksonville

July 28, 2013 at 8:09 pm By Lance Venta

As bankruptcy receiver Scott Savage sells off some of the former Tama Broadcasting stations, another one is preparing to launch a new format.

Spanish Tropical “Caliente 105.3” WJSJ Fernandina Beach/Jacksonville dropped its format this afternoon and began stunting with Christmas music. In explaining the motives behind the change to their listeners on Facebook, the station stated it was lack of advertiser support that did the former format in.

In terms of what’s next, Fun105.com and Fun1053.com were registered by station OM Joel Widdows earlier this month. Based on the current makeup of the market, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a Classic Hits format.

So were there any other stations that went "Christmasy" back on July 25th?!?

I just tuned in for the first time today, and they apparently have switched formats - they're now a Country station. When did it switch over? Probably this morning sometime, I would suspect...

So...it looks like that's pretty much just about it for "Christmas in July" this year (depending on whether or not this WJSJ in Jacksonville is advertising itself as a "Christmas in July" event).
