Thread: Do we really need 4 christmas stations?

    Do we really need 4 christmas stations?

    4 stations is too much:

    89.7 (rimshot?)
    94.9 KLTY
    98.7 KLUV
    102.1 KDGE

    98.7 may do it every year but is there another Classic Hits station in DFW?

    102.1 listeners can probably deal with 102.9 for a while (most 102.1 listeners probably listen to it anyways) or listen to 102.1 HD-2

    89.7 is a DFW rimshot i think but they play a crap ton of christmas music I've never heard. Their signal does make it in to texoma though better than 102.1, 94.9 and 98.7.

    94.9 has done it every year like 98.7 i think and plays more christmas music than just christian christmas music.

    What do you guys think? We really need 4 stations blasting Christmas music?

    If you don't like it, don't listen

    I'm fine with the Christmas music but i think 4 stations playing it is too many.

    Here in Boston, we're lucky to have one of them in the city itself. The others are rimshot stations from New Hampshire and Rhode island.

    At one time Dallas had five stations (maybe even 6 with the rimshots) playing country. Not any more.

    It's just for a few weeks. It's not permanent. And for some of those stations, its a breath of fresh air.

    I've never heard of 89.7 out of Dallas. Do you mean KEOM 88.5 - 61k watts of near flame-throwing power out of Mesquite? They seem to play a good amount of Holiday based songs ignored by their commercial radio counterparts.

    No i mean 89.7 KAWA (WAY-FM). Its a rimshot station probably so that may be why you have never heard it.

    I remembered when 89.7 used to be "The Power" and played hard Christian rock. Too bad it flipped to be a KLTY/Air 1 clone.

    Aside from that, 89.7 also serves the Texoma market so technically we have 3 stations in the immediate DFW area probably playing the same "All I Want For Christmas is You" or one of the millions of other versions of it.

    89.7 doesn't play stuff like "All i want for Christmas is you" i think they play more christmas music that talks about the Lord or God. They play a whole bunch of "Christmas" music i have never heard in my life. I think they don't even play Christmas songs that most other stations in the country do.

    KEOM on 88.5 is Classic Hits. This is the first year for 89.7 to go all Christmas as far as I'm aware, 102.1 is newer as well. For the longest time we had 103.7 doing it with 94.9 and that seemed like a healthy mix. It made sense for KLUV to pick it up after KVIL flipped but 4 might not seem as excessive as it appears, they're all doing it differently from one another. 102.1 is going to be more currents based, KLUV more classics. KLTY is more than likely playing tracks KLUV and Star will not, and certainly KAWA is going to be the most removed from them all.

    I have absolutely no idea if one of our Spanish-speaking broadcasters go all Christmas. I'd assume one of them do.
