Things are crazy-busy here at the Sounds of Christmas, as I'm sure it is at your house. So much to do, and the time seems to be flying by! How can we already be halfway through December???
Thanks so much for listening to the Sounds of Christmas, and making us part of your holiday season! We're now being heard in all 50 states (plus Washington, DC), as well as 110 other countries!
The All-Request Hour continues. Still trying to get everyone's favorites on, but sometimes there are just so many requests for the same artist that it's a little tricky. Hope you got to hear yours, and if you didn't, the new Request Blog will be up later this weekend. If you click on REQUESTS at the top of this page, you'll find it, and you can comment with your requests and find out when they'll be on!
The All Request Hour runs from 12:00pm to 1:00pm (Eastern) each weekday.
The New Music Hour is going strong, too! From 8:00pm to 9:00pm (Eastern) each weeknight, you'll get an entire hour of the latest Christmas music! I'm still adding lots of new music, so you'll always get to hear something new! This week, you can catch new songs from Kris Allen, People On Vacation and the Cast of GLEE (among many, many more)!
You can also hear the singers and bands that are sponsoring us this season, as well as those who have been a big part of the Sounds of Christmas in years past, on the Stars of the Sounds of Christmas. That airs four times a day, at 1:00am and 7:00am, and 1:00pm and 7:00pm. You'll hear from Richard Kincaid, Scotty McCreery, the Prog World Orchestra, Judy Pancoast, Chuck Cape, Frank D'Angelo, Luanne Hunt and the Polyphonic Spree, as well as Tommy James, Shelby Lynne and Mannheim Steamroller (just to name a few).
Speaking of Scotty McCreery, the Scotty McCreery Song of the Day Contest continues this Monday! You can win a CD Prize Pack including Scotty's new CD "Christmas With Scotty McCreery"! You can get the details on that RIGHT HERE!
And every Tuesday in December is a Two For Tuesday, with two songs in row, all day long, from all your favorite Christmas music artists, all day long!
That's the news for now, so let's move on to this week's top ten. Since the Sounds of Christmas plays thousands of songs, all the top ten's for the rest of the season will have at least twenty songs. It just seems hard to limit it to only ten, when we play so many!
