    I'd file a complaint with the FCC. Radio stations are supposed to operate in the public interest.

    War on xmas, it's on! :D

    A very happy holidays to all.

    Not here yet. But when it comes, you hear the same songs in the PM drive time that you heard in the AM drive time.

    I'm a fast reader: 3.2 seconds.

    Not iTunes Radio that's for sure. Pandora's Christmas stations blow iTunes out of the water. Hopefully they're putting together a station as we speak in time for the holiday season :)

    I've actually never heard a public radio station play any Christmas music where I live. Maybe I just listen to the wrong (or right? :p) stations.

    Is this - playing music of the Yuletide Season - not just a little premature in early November?

    This year one of our local radio stations rebranded and became an adult contemporary station. They usually started their annual only Christmas playlist around now, but they've ditched that with the new brand. Thank goodness!

    It's rumored that it's going to be hosted on another station though, as it segments into becoming another top 40 station by the end of the year.

    A lot of folks complain about Christmas coming "too early," but I like listening to Christmas music. I usually wait until around the week of Thanksgiving to start listening, but if I go into a store and it's playing this time of year I certainly don't mind it.

    XM/Sirius will be starting up their Christmas music stations tomorrow. I've been listening to Christmas music for about 2 weeks myself :eek:

    :D

    I love the season so I enjoy the music

    Funny....not having to listen to that garbage this time of year is one of the reasons I pay for XM :p

    Presumably though, if they just limit it to a few stations you can successfully avoid it?
