Ho Ho Holy #%*$! Christmas radio is here?


I’m listening to WWIZ, Youngstown, Ohio’s Oldies Z-104, now Christmas 104. As much as I hate rushing the season, the music mix sounds pretty good. Liners acknowledge that they might be just a little early. No d.j., just music. I’ll turn it up loud for the trick or treaters.

Last hour or so:

Band Aid, Do They Know It’s Christmas?

Nat King Cole, The Christmas Song

Jackson 5, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

Brenda Lee, Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree

Hall & Oates, Jingle Bell Rock

James Taylor, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

John Lennon, Happy Christmas (War Is Over)

Andy Williams, Happy Holidays

Stevie Wonder, Someday at Christmas

David Foster, Carol of the Bells

Mariah Carey, All I Want for Christmas is You

Josh Grobin, Holy Night

Gene Autry, Here Comes Santa Claus Cut off in the middle of the song for seven intrusive commercials!

Wham!, Last Christmas

The Ronettes, Sleigh Ride

Whitney Houston, Do You Hear What I Hear?

Ray Conniff, Ring Christmas Bells

Seven mood-busting commercials

Jose Feliciano, Feliz Navidad

Amy Grant, I’ll Be Home for Christmas

Vince Guaraldi, Christmas Time Is Here
