    KOST 103.5 FM is in full holiday mode

    They are playing their Christmas Music now 24 hrs 7 days a week. It's great I leave it on almost all night long and up until I turn on the TV for the day. I love this time of year!

    You know, I love that they do this. And in the past they have started on or around Nov. 25 and had a month of holiday music. But they started, yesterday. Nov. 16. Five and a half weeks before Christmas.

    I just can't listen until AT LEAST after Thanksgiving.

    Same with me. Bad enough Victoria Gardens was playing Christmas music when I was there two weeks ago!!! When I have my iPod on Shuffle mode, it'll play Christmas music but I quickly change it to another song. When it's still 80 degrees outside, it just is not Christmas time. Now I am going to have to wake up to Christmas music cause I have KOST on my alarm clock.

    I have Sirius radio and they have THREE stations having 24 hours of christmas music. I like holiday tunes but I may just fall into a syrupie holiday music diabetic coma.

    I'm with you! I love that they do this, but seriously...can't we do one holiday at a time? I also wish that they would start after Thanksgiving; it would make it not so sick of the music by the time Christmas comes around...

    Oh My Gosh.
    Last night i was just so exhausted and I turned on the radio and heard a Christmas song thinking they rotated it in.... then this morning I realized they'd already flipped th switch. UGH.

    I KNOW it's almost Thanksgiving but it's still WAY too early. Now I have to find a station that will come in on my clock radio. They lost this listener for a few more weeks!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I guess I'm the grinch here.

    I liked it the old way when we did celebrate one holiday at a time, and didn't start so early. That's when radio stations started filtering in a few songs in maybe the first week of December, and added to the mix more and more until Christmas Eve, the only day it was non-stop.

    I don't recall stations doing Christmas 24/7 in November until after 9/11, when we as a group were said to be looking for "comforting" things.

    But these radio stations are owned by corporate conglomerates, and they wouldn't program the format unless it was making something more than jingle bells ring for them.

    To each, their own.

    Happy Kwanzaa. I think that's in January. Surely there's an internet station if nothing else doing all Kwanzaa 24/7. I'll report back.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    we have a popular station here in DC that does the same thing. They started early this year as well. Honestly all it does is make me turn the station off for 2 months...

    I discovered the KOST start yesterday. And I've been listening to it on Cable for a week or so. Can't listen all day, yet, but it is nice for a few songs.

    It was weird because going up the 330 Friday it was Fergie "Glamorous" and then the next was a Christmas song...

    The only two AC stations here started Christmas music on Thursday 24/7. Now, if I want regular, decent music, I just plug in my ipod in the car.

    I've been looking forward to the nonstop Christmas music. I'm glad it's that time of year.

    Just watch. In a few years, Thanksgiving will just be "another day."

    I love this season though. It encourages giving.
