My favorite radio station started playing Christmas music this morning! What's with that?!? I'm not talking about the occassional song - it's every song, 24 hours a day, until noon on Christmas Day. It's way too early, in my opinion.

Time to find another radio station...

Each to his own.....Thankfully there are always a few more choices available, at least around here.

Just turn the dial or push the button.

Our NPR station is all talk, all the time, except for Prairie Home Companion.  I manage my own Xmas music when and as I like.

Though, since my Mom was always a choir director, she'd start the Xmas music early, listening to stuff to help decide what the choir would learn. So I'm kid of okay with two months or more of it. But only the good stuff.  No Little Drummer Boy.

Kool 105 and Kosi 101 are both playing nonstop Christmas music......which means I will not listen to either station for another two weeks.

Lots of stations with other music, than Chirstmas music.  I listened for a while this morning, then on to other stations.  I get tired of most any station after a while.

No, it is late.  According to Gwen, they start with the Christmas music in the Philippines in late August!
