2011 Christmas/Holiday Radio Programming & Schedules

On the occasion of my one hundredth created thread at MMC we kick off the Fifth Annual "Christmas/Holiday Radio Programming & Schedules"

2007 * 2008 * 2009 * 2010

Happy Half Christmas 2011 & June 2011 Rudolph Day!

Last year, 2010, this thread was included in the Platinum only area (for posting). This resulted in way less participation and view count. 2011 will be no different. All members may read but only Platinum members are able to post. So, if you wish to contribute as a non-Platinum member, shoot me a private message and I'll copy and paste your information in this thread.

The usual:

Like its annual Christmas TV counterpart thread, this Radio version will keep track of stations airing seasonal programming.

Many commercial broadcast stations will become “Your Official Holiday/Christmas Station” in November.

Likewise, many Public Radio Stations will air special programming for the entire holiday season, starting with Halloween and Thanksgiving themes. Personally, I like these type programs because they explore music other than the top 100 or so Christmas tunes that commercial broadcast radio wear out every year.

As you learn of stations making the switch to all Christmas, post ‘em here. List the station call sign, frequency and city. Also be sure to include a station link, especially if they stream their audio online! Here are a couple of starting places that list as many all Christmas stations as they can:

http://www.100000watts.com/specials.asp (still showing the 427 stations of 2010 at post time)

http://www.web-radio.fm/christmas/ (includes broadcast and online stations)

Sirius XM and their associated Satellite TV channels should be included here too!

I’m hopeful that folks in other countries will research and post all Christmas radio/audio related content with station links so that we may partake! I still haven’t developed a method for researching sites such as BBC Radio of the UK.

As always, I reserve the right to quote anyone starting another thread or posting anywhere else about their station(s) “going all Christmas” here in this thread. In their initial excitement, some folks will overlook this thread!
