First, to all who celebrated, hope you, your families and friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It's hard to believe the turkey and the Macy's parade are already done!
Thanks so much to everyone that has already tuned in! We now have listeners in 49 states, Washington DC and 80 other countries! If you know someone in Alaska, give them a nudge to listen so next week we can say we have all of the United States!
We're still loading music, including new Christmas singles from Natasha Bedingfield, Cyndi Lauper (with Norah Jones), Paul Anka, Bowling For Soup and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals (just to mention a few) Closing in on 2000 songs, and it seems like I'm just scratching the surface!
This coming week, I'll be bringing back a couple special shows, and adding something new!
Weekdays at noon (Eastern), it's the return of the All Request Hour. So if there's something you want to hear, make sure you send an email to me (or comment below), and I'll do my best to get it on for you!
Weekday evenings at 7:00pm (Eastern), it's the New Music Hour, featuring an entire hour of the latest Christmas releases!
And starting Monday, each weekday we'll be spotlighting the Stars of the Sounds of Christmas, featuring songs from the singers and bands that have supported us for the last five years, along with those who are helping to make this year's broadcast possible! You can hear the Stars of the Sounds of Christmas each weekday at 1:00am and 7:00am, and 1:00pm and 7:00pm (all times Eastern)!
It looks like this week's Top Ten is once again completely different from last week's. Pretty soon, I expect the Top Ten will change almost every day!
If you want to help and rate the music we play, you actually have to go through Live 365, which you can get to by going here --> http://www.live365.com/stations/soundsofchristmas
I also wanted to mention that whether you listen through our website here or over at Live 365, you don't have to stay on the page. If you click on the little double box in the upper right hand corner, the player will pop out, so you can go wherever you want on the web and still listen to the Sounds of Christmas!
So with all that said, here's this week's Top Ten...
1) The Embers "I Love Christmas Music”
2) Vanessa Peters "The Christmas We Hoped For”
3) Cheap Trick "Come On Christmas”
4) Carolyn Sills "George Bailey”
5) Harry Connick Jr. "Parade Of The Wooden Soldiers”
6) The Monkees "Christmas Is My Time Of Year”
7) Lisa McClowry "Before The Tree Comes Down”
8) Kenny Vance and the Planotones "Doo Wop Christmas”
9) Chicago with Steve Cropper "Rocking and Rolling on Christmas Day”
10) She and Him "Christmas Day”

Yes, I know there are twenty. Since we play so much more Christmas music than anyone else, I just thought our Top Ten list should be bigger, too!
