Christmas music

I was in my car with my wife this morning and WODS was taking calls from
listeners who were very happy to have the holiday music playing now.  My
wife shares their sentiments.  I've decided that I do like it this year, but
since I spend most of my time listening to internet radio, I have many more
choices ... including very particular types of holiday music.

I agree it's too early for Christmas music. Being that I'm out of touch with
the radio industry - except this list and Broadcast Digest - my "druthers"
would be: 1st week of December - 1 holiday song every half-hour.
          2nd week - 2 or 3 per hour.
          3rd week until the day before - 4 to 6 per hour.
          Midnight of the 24th - every other song.
          noon or 6 p.m. of the 24th - all holiday music.
I use the term "holiday" because I'd include Hanukkah music in the mix. And,
Kwanzaa may or may not have its own music. I figure, holidays are holidays,
and it's interesting to have three occur at the same time of the year.

But then, what do I know? I'm just the 800-pound gorilla on the list.

Happy....whatever....(generic and all-inclusive holiday greeting)
