Supposedly both stations were getting a lot of emails asking when the
Christmas music would start. No word on how many of them were from
sponsors, and managers at Greater Media and CBS...

Back to Chri$tma$ has 2 S's in it and they're both dollar signs. Yes
it is early but while some will "take it off the presets", many others
will welcome the news. Listeners...also maybe some stores who will put
these stations on as background music (provided they've paid the
BMI rights). The laundromat I go to usually has Magic...106.7...on, so
I won't be bombarded by the Yule stuff.

Supposedly it could have been earlier but they wanted to wait as the
weather was still kind of warm (plus there was election day &
veteran's day). They have gone from 2 wks before the holiday to the
start of Dec  to Thanksgiving, all the way back to the first or second
week of
Nov. But hey, the holiday stuff may have been in the stores around the
same time the Halloween candy went in...
