Way Too Early for This

Every year in SoCal, KOST 103.5 FM broadcasts Christmas music. At first, some years ago, they'd start this on the eve. Then, years later, the week of... followed by the month of the yuletide season--or right after the Thanksgiving weekend. And, I think last year, they began it during the T-day* weekend.

Last night, on the way home from picking up my teen from his after-school program, I discovered, to my horror, that the radio station had started it that day (Nov 21st)!?! So, they jumped over that Fall holiday altogether to get the Xmas season underway. Un-believable...

* to borrow Corey Wilde's family term for Thanksgiving ;-)


  1. Nope, not unbelievable at all. 93.3 here in Columbus has been playing Christmas music for at least a week now. And the stores are already playing it also. I love Christmas music but I like to have it with the things that go with it: tree-trimming, wrapping prezzies, unwrapping prezzies, etc. I don't want to be burnt out on it before it's even time to enjoy it.

  2. What can I say? This city is built on the twin sins of materialism and consumerism.
