The Sounds of Christmas is back on the air!
I just finished loading up the first thousand songs (actually 1064), and set the whole things to randomly shuffle while I get everything else set up. Like a great big iPod.
Because of the way it's running right now, there's no song or artist separation. So you might hear a couple "Santa Baby's" back to back, followed by three in a row from Scotty McCreery's new album, then a few versions of "Do They Know It's Christmas" and a pair from the Polyphonic Spree. All that should be taken care of shortly, but if you do hear something like that, at least now you know why.
I turned the station on Halloween night and was amazed to see that some were already tuning in! By midnight, the Sounds of Christmas already had listeners in five states, plus Canada and Bangladesh! Thanks so much to all who are already listening!
And if you're thinking that you still have half a bowl of Halloween candy, plus pumpkin residue on the porch, and you aren't ready for Christmas music, yet, I understand. Come back whenever you are ready, and we'll be ready for you!
For those who are ready, and already listening, please let me know if you hear something amiss. Wrong or defective songs, or even misspellings. This may be the fastest I've ever gotten the first thousand up, and there could easily be some mistakes!
Otherwise, thanks so much for your support, and welcome to the sixth season of the Sounds of Christmas!
And may you always believe in Santa Claus!
