    Seems like I saw where the online North Pole Radio is now only seasonal. Makes me wonder if KNBQ became an "affiliate" of the online station or came up with the same name themselves.

    I just tried to get North Pole Radio to work (one of my favorite year-round stations until last year when I couldn't get it to work ever!) and it has a "Now Playing" list under the players but none of the players work! Oh well. Back to Santa 93 until the season...

    According to this article at Radio Insight, 103.9 K280DD Las Vegas has signed on the air as
    “Christmas 103.9."

    The real format will be coming sometime before Labor Day (U.S.). No online stream that I could find.

    From the Duluth News Tribune:

    Billed as "The Northland's only year-round Christmas music superstation" WEBC-AM 560 in Duluth, Minnesota dropped it's ESPN Sports format Wednesday, September 30, 2015. A translator (W293CT) was added on 106.5-FM.

    Radio Insight says it's a stunt. True, but for how long? Will WEBC be the first 2015 all Christmas station?

    Check Ho Ho 106.5's (mistakenly labeled 160.5) FaceBook page for some less than enthusiastic comments. Beware! Strong language.

    From Radio Insight we learn that KAUU. 105.1 FM is stunting with Christmas music.

    This is before a move from simulcasting KEGA, 101.5 FM's Country format. Whatever the new format is will debut November 1, 2015.

    Until then listeners in the area can listen to "The Gift." No online link was found. All the KAUU links in apps such as Tune In are still of KEGA.

    Happy News! Lite105 Internet Radio out of Dayton has been having some issues recently with upgrades-that's not the happy news. Because of some downtime, they're playing CHRISTMAS MUSIC for about a week or so! It's not a terrestrial radio station, but hey-I'll take what I can get! 8 months til the Big Day!

    Former 'Star 92.1' is now 'Christmas Star.'

    WMYB in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina will reveal "the gift" aka the new format Thursday, September 15, 2016. Until then, listen to all Christmas music on 92.1 & online.

    While you're at it, see the yeas and nays on Star's FaceBook page.

    103.7 PLAY WURV out of Richmond, VA will be playing Christmas music all day tomorrow just for the day! It's for a a giveaway it says, but still-it's a flip (and flop back)!

    Spring has Sprung for 2017 and so has Santa-FM in Panama City, Florida.


    [​IMG]

    After some frequency switching around after lightning struck their tower, station WYYX in Bonify, Florida has returned to 101.1 FM. After the Spring Break stunt, call leters will change to WWLY while WYYX will go back to the sister station on 97.7.

    Got that?...Me either. Listen live at http://streamdb4web.securenetsystems.net/v5/WVVE

    And don't forget to like the 101.1 Santa-FM FaceBook page.

    From RadioInsight:


    With Rock “97X” WYYX relocating back to 97.7, Magic Broadcasting has launched Christmas Music “100.1 Santa-FM” WWLY Panama City Beach FL.

    The station has gone beyond the usual Christmas stunt to at least give the appearance of its promise of “Christmas Hits All Year”. The station is running live remotes this weekend including “Rudolph’s Foam Party” on Saturday, March 25 described as “Christmas music? Check! Glow sticks? Check! Reindeer hats? Check! 10,000 gallons of foam? Check!”

    Prior to WYYX’s tower being struck by lightning and 100.1 becoming the temporary home of “97X” last August, the station was Rhythmic Oldies “Groove 100.1” WVVE.

    And, just like that (finger snap), Santa-FM gives way to Wild Willie 100.1, Real! Country! Legends!

    The Santa-FM stunt format file awaits its next station.

    Stay tuned here!

    Ooooh yeah, I remember this online radio station! I saw a few months back that that website had closed down (along with Santa98, the spinoff station). That was depressing. So I guess Lite105 is back up and running?!? And (for now) it's playing Christmas music?!? Awesome!! I'll be tuning in!

    We all know Lite 105 Dayton is stunting as a christmas music station as Santa 105. but that's not the only radio station stunting with christmas music.. This one is 107.3 FM. it's not in Dayton. It's in Northern Colorado.

    Here's the article (source: https://radioinsight.com/headlines/118538/christmas-june-northern-colorado/ )

    iHeartMedia has dropped the Christian AC “Up 107.3” format on K297AK Loveland CO/97.9 KXBG-HD2 Cheyenne WY in favor of its usually seasonal “Santa 107.3” Christmas identity.

    W297AK has used the “Santa 107.3” moniker each of the past three holiday seasons. In 2014 and 2015 it predated a format change, which will be the case here as well.

    This is the second of iHeartMedia’s three “Up” branded Christan AC stations to drop the format in recent weeks. 103.7 W279AQ Mascoutah IL/KLOU-HD2 St. Louis flipped to Urban AC last month. The format remains on 1280 KZFS/99.3 K257FX Spokane WA.

    Take a listen: http://up1073.iheart.com/

    That counts as the start of "Christmas in July", in my book. ;)

    ....As I look over that 107.3 website, they haven't changed the website to reflect the Christmas theme. That kinda sucks. But still, it's Christmas music on terrestrial radio...

    Okay, but what's the actual link to the new Magic 105 website? Or to their online radio feed? And are they going to split off and have a "year round" Christmas radio station? (like they used to have)?
