When Should Radio Stations Start Playing Christmas Music? [POLL]
Most everyone agrees - People start celebrating Christmas earlier and earlier each year. Oddly enough, via our survey, we're going to jump on board ourselves by bringing up Christmas in mid-November. We do this, however, with a goal in mind. We would like to know if you feel radio stations start playing Christmas music too early?
Historically, radio stations across America begin playing Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving. They start slowly, with maybe four or five Christmas songs a day. The ratio of Christmas music to regular programming increases steadily until December 25th, by which time many stations go entirely to Holiday programming.
