OK, minor rant, lets not make this political or something its not. I love Christmas, its the holiest day of the year and very special in our house, traditional, its the way we were raised. The season for us starts the day after Thanksgiving, we don't spend a lot, our parents didn't spend a lot. I love traditional and some newer CHRISTMAS music, carols if you will, I like secular music too, some. Anyhow with all those caveats in place let me tell you about a radio station here in Cleveland. It started playing what they call Christmas music 2 weeks ago, non-stop, all day, 24/7. Hey, its about ratings which is about money, its your station. I think that maybe there has been at most 60-70 Christmas songs ever written, the others come under what I'd call "holiday" music. You can't escape now, all day long everwhere you go its this "music". I'm done, I dread this time of year now, I can't wait for it to end. Its very hard now to really keep the whole reason for Christmas focused in your life and brain. I have a hard time believing they are making money, oh, they aren't they are being subsidized by......corporations here because nobody is listening that matters so for this time period in the Nielson ratings, they have like a zero audience. Oh, folks listen, we will too, ON CHRISTMAS DAY. Again, its their station, but for me it cheapens the whole day by ramping up folks to spend, spend ,SPEND! OK, thats all I have to say about that. I'm going to go listen to Perry Como.
