Thread: When is it too early for Christmas music?

    Pre-Halloween is definitely too early. Post Thanksgiving is ideal, but I think there will be some flips on or near November 1st.

    Christmas Music Playlists

    I enjoy Christmas/Holiday music after Thanksgiving. The issue as I see it is that the playlists are the same 100 songs no matter what station you listen to in a certain area. Expand the playlists as there are so many variations of excellent music for the season.

    How can there be any pressure on stations to expand the playlist or start the ho-ho-ho earlier when ratings always jump no matter when the switch is flipped and no matter how frequently certain songs get played? The average AC listener -- you know, female, 25-54, not a music or radio geek -- loves the Christmas format and doesn't want it to change. I assume the advertisers feel the same way. Want deeper playlists and later starts? Try internet streams or pay radio (SiriusXM).

    I don't want to see the playlists expanded. There were plenty of good performances from the 1940s through the 1960s, and maybe a few traditional sounding ones since then.

    The ratings go up, I believe, because people with my musical taste don't have a radio station in the traditional sense the rest of the year.

    I tend to do both to get deeper playlists as well as my own favorites from my personal electronic media. On the terrestial front, I'm interested in listening to what Gold 99 in Ocala/Gainesville as they now live and local.
