Christmas 103

Why not?  Contemporary music stations play the old holiday standards and 
the Motown stuff right along with the newer material when it's time to 
play Christmas music.  As far as this music goes, the hits are the hits, 
and they seem to cross most demographics, young and old.  If an AC or 
even a CHR can play Bing Crosby or the Supremes, then an oldies station 
can play Whitney or Wham.  I'd get a little nervous if WODS starts 
playing stuff from Britney Spears or N'Sync though....:)
