So Many, So Soon !!!

Feel free to explore any or all stations looking for listen links & logos to share here. Listing each one separately is time consuming for one person, especially with so many so soon!

I also felt that I needed to record a few hours of each station (available on DAR.fm) but probably just won't be able to keep up there either. Anyone wanting to pitch in to start/schedule stations may do so! Contact me for log in details. I'm thinking that five hours per station may be enough although the first few recorded/recording are way longer.

If you don't feel comfortable working in DAR.fm but want a few hours of a particular station recorded, shoot me a pm and I'll be glad to set it up.


November 1, 2013 From Radio Insight:

Among the known stations also making the switch this morning:

Clear Channel Classic Hits “Classic 93.1” KHLX Sacramento
“True Oldies 1170” KRUE Waseca, MN
Pillar of Fire Christian AC “Star 93.3” WAKW Cincinnati
SJ Broadcasting AC “Sunny 95.3” WJEK Champaign IL
“97.7 Guess-FM” 1430 WOWW/W249BN Memphis
Clear Channel Hot AC “Mix 93.1” WSVO Staunton, VA
Bristol Broadcasting Classic Rock 94.7 WQQR Paducah ditched its branding for “Christmas 94.7“
Clear Channel’s “Oldies 107.3” WODX Rochester
Clear Channel Hot AC “Mix 94.5” WMXL Lexington
Clear Channel Hot AC “Mix 95.7” W239BV Winchester, VA

Listen Report WZTI - Milwaukee, WI

I've just started listening to a bit of WZTI. First tune heard, James Brown - "Santa Claus Go Straight to the Ghetto". The second, Bing's "White Christmas." It also seems to have a real station DJ. Yeah, I'll enjoy this one!

Straight to the listen link - http://www.1290martiniradio.com/listen.html

And sure enough, I checked today, and WZTI (1290 AM - "Martini Radio") has switched to an all Christmas music format! (they probably launched it this morning, it was still playing "Frank Sinatra" music as of a couple days ago).

Here's their website (which does have an online listen link). Enjoy!

Listen Report: Tinsel & Tunes - NET

Not your typical Top-100 Christmas Tune station, for sure! Many recognizable tunes by lesser heard artists. Tinsel & Tunes does have a somewhat of a contemporary Jazz flavor but with a mix other genres as well. Like!

Tinsel & Tunes kicks off tonight at Midnight Eastern (in a few minutes from this post).

...And

“Magic 93.7” WMJY Biloxi, Mississippi with online listen link (iHeart Radio).

105.9 KGBX Springfield, Missouri with online listen link (iHeart Radio).

I assume all iHeart stations will be carrying the same programming. These two are the same. Perhaps there are local commercial and station drop ins though this is an indication that your local commercial broadcast station isn't really local at all.

Yes, this is my local "Christmas station" each year (and I'm not usually satisfied with their playlist). Still, I enjoyed discovering Christmas music playing yesterday when I turned on the station. It wasn't playing christmas music the day before - so I wondered "Why launch Christmas music on a Saturday?"

The DJ came on inbetween songs at a certain point, and declared this was just a weekend of Christmas music - a teaser ahead of when they actually do go "All Christmas" (probably in another 2 or 3 weeks). Bah, I was hoping they were "All Christmas" fully committed as of now. Still, this is the first time in many a year in which they played Christmas music this early.
