I'm incredulous. Astonished. Flummoxed. Amazed --- that this format
actually draws good ratings. IMHO, Christmas pop music is so ubiquitous this
time of year (people can hear the same thing when they go into Walmart or
any other store) that after a short time it gets tiresome. Makes me wonder
how many people actually LISTEN to music on the radio, or whether it's just
background noise while they do something else.
