I voted on the whole 100 song play list last year. I kept a lot of the ones in that I knew were going to be there but just added a little more Bing and traditional music. It didn't seem to make any difference.

I have written my local station before (PBR out of Killeen - knct) and asked them to start a little earlier. They used to start earlier but had started one week before Christmas the previous year. I don't know if my letter had any affect or not, but they went back to starting earlier.

Start date choices are:

Right Now
November 1st
November 15th
Thanksgiving Day
December 1st

Now, what do you really think B-101 would do if one million people voted "Right Now" in the next twenty-four hours? Has anyone ever even seen the poll results posted on the webpage?

From the webpage:

B101 is Philadelphia’s Christmas Music Station. Please tell us what songs we should (and shouldn’t) play this holiday season. Listeners choose every song we play on B101.
