My light rock station has switched over to Christmas music already. Grrr. It gets earlier every year.

KUDL or Star 102?

I remember a couple of years ago one of them switched over to Christmas music ON Halloween! I agree, it really is too early.

KUDL. I didn't check Star, though. They'll be soon if they're not yet.

Whoa, ALREADY? That's nuts! I don't know it is in Connecticut (guess I'll find out), but back home it didn't start until the beginning of December. Hopefully it's just the occasional Christmas song and now ONLY Christmas music.

Yeah, it sucks. I like your back home station's policy. It makes sense. I don't want to hear only Christmas music for 2 freaking months. How does that not alienate their Jewish/Muslim/Atheist audience?

How does it not alienate the Christian audience too? ;)

Well, it does, but I'd think it'd be more offensive if you don't even celebrate the holiday that your radio station devotes 2 months of its playlists to.

Oh, I wasn't disagreeing with that. I totally agree. Some of my most cherished holiday memories as a child on the south side of Chicago was playing dreidl and helping my friends pat the latkes and stir applesauce when I went over to their house during Chanukah. And it was very fun last year when I was teaching at an African-American middle school to learn Kwanzaa songs and learn about the meaning of that holiday. :)

But I generally don't like the music that they play during Christmas, anyway. I always listen to choral and orchestral arrangements of hymns and stuff during Christmas myself. (And of course the Peter, Paul, and Mary holiday CD.)

Yet another reason I don't listen to commercial radio anymore unless it's a sports event. I remember writing in a snarling fit last year to complain to one of my stations for starting the Christmas music on November 1, and their reply was a polite "we don't care what you say, our advertisers want this".

*rolls eyes* Yeah, that's probably why they do it. That, and for the stores that pipe them in who are already trying to shell Christmas gifts and stuff.

I seriously can't stand that. It's impossible to listen to the radio in November. I belong to the school of thought that says you can't start Christmas until after Thanksgiving!

I know what you mean. Actually, our family's rule was always that you couldn't start decorating and stuff 'til my Mom's birthday, which is December 5.
