Too Early For Holiday Music?

Patch asks when Christmas jingles jive with you.

It may be mid-November, but local radio stations already are dusting off their holiday records in preparation for seasonal Yuletide spinning. But is it too early for B101 and BEN-FM to "Rock Around the Christmas Tree," if Tom the Turkey hasn't been properly stuffed?

What's your favorite Christmas carol? Do you prefer the holiday classics or more modern Christmas tunes? Let us know you think by voting in our poll and sharing your comments.

Stations switch over to the Christmas format because it consistently spikes their ratings. It becomes a competition between them to be perceived as "the" Christmas music station. Personally, I don't want to hear it until that Thanksgiving drive to Grandmother's house - or maybe the ride home.

Sirius XM channel 147 spins holiday music by the likes of Crosby, Sinatra, Ella, Peggy Lee, Torme, Jo Stafford and other artists of the 'Great American Songbook' era. They bring style, musicianship and great arrangements to their performances no matter what they sing. To me, it is pure joy to hear them sing the songs of the season. Play on!

I'm not familiar with that album. Looks like it could be good. Thanks for sharing. Anyone else have a favorite holiday album to share?

I prefer to make my own Christmas music playlist from songs I personally like. Then I can play them anytime, anywhere by burning a CD, on an .mp3 player or computer. Radio is just too annoying nowadays.
