Happy Holidays from America’s Country!!

I am a huge fan of Holiday Music! In the past, we’ve played all Holiday music for the entire month of December. While my family, a few others, and myself have really enjoyed it, it’s not always the best strategy. This year, beginning the day after Thanksgiving, we will begin to slowly add Holiday songs to the normal rotation of Hot Country Hits. As we get closer to Christmas Day, we will have up to 4 or 5 songs per hour. For Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I will be playing 48 hours of Christmas Music and hopefully some long-form specials from our providers.

I want to share my love of the Season without overwhelming you all. Holiday music can sometimes be a very polarizing thing. A lot of people really love it, some folks really don’t like it at all. And yet further, some folks are just kinda OK with it. I hope to strike a good balance and provide the best to everyone.

I will be playing some of the well known classics from Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole that you all know and love along with some of the best from our stable of incredible Country artists like Blake Shelton and Martina McBride. As always, I will ask for and encourage your constant feedback. Please post on Twitter, Facebook, or on this post if things need to be adjusted. “Play More Holiday Music!”, “Don’t play so much Holiday Music!”, etc… I want to know!

Again, we wish all of you Happy Holidays and thanks for listening to America’s Country!

Love ya,
Timmy

More Christmas Music!!

Thanks to the creator of IMS, we got the song duplication issues addressed! I’ve also continued adding more titles to the library. I am heading to the store tonight to get a hold of more Christmas Music. If you have any specific songs you’d like to hear, please comment here or email: kxrt-studio@marinifamily.org. Thanks to all of you who listen day to day! Help us out by sending your coworkers, family and friends to us. Thanks, also, to Erika and Wyatt for their on-air Christmas wishes! Don’t they sound cute?

We love you and wish you all a safe and happy holiday season! Merry Christmas!
