I have not started my Christmas shopping yet and usually wait on the Christmas decorations until the middle of November. I can't wait until the Christmas music on the radio starts though! I wish it would start now! That is what really starts to get meinto the holiday spirit. Please don't make us wait any longer- start the Christmas music now!

5 days ago would of been nice! I want the Christmas Mix now and I know I'm not alone! The 99.1 Facebook page is filled with people requesting Christmas music! I know your getting emails and phone calls too! The stores are decorated for Christmas, Kohls is playing Christmas music, the Salvation Army red kettles are out with bells ringing and I just bought some Christmas lights today to hopefully put up this weekend!! It's time for the Christmas Mix!

While I would love you to play Christmas Music now, I would just like to know a date so that we can look forward to it. Christmas Music on the radio is so much fun for a lot of people and everyone looks forward to Nov 1st because you usually swiched then. If that is not the case anymore, advertise another date and say this is when we will switch every year or around this time. Thanks and hopefully we will hear a date soon or Christmas Music.

I want to hear the Christmas music now. I usually listen to a different station but I have been checking this one constantly just waiting to hear Christmas. Its so relaxing and cheerful and as we all know we could use more of that this time of year. Hurry up and switch to the holiday stuff please.

Want christmas music on the Mix NOW? Like us on facebook, and let's keep pressuring our favorite christmas music stations to make the flip NOW! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Christmas-Music-on-Milwaukee-Radio/163322077025487

I tuned in November 1st when I thought the Mix would be playing Christmas music. I was SO sad when I realized the Christmas tunes haven't started yet. However, I still love the Mix! Start ASAP though!!! On the flip side, I can understand why some wouldn't want it playing so early. People are focused on Thanksgiving right now. Even though I want the music on now... maybe waiting until the day after Thanksgiving would be the right time?
11/06/2010 6:40AM

Nah, I don't usually do my Christmas shopping until 2 weeks before the big day. Personally, I want to hear Christmas music on the Mix right now! But I know there are party poopers ;-) out there who don't want to hear it until after Thanksgiving. So I propose a compromise. How about starting the Christmas music November 14?
11/06/2010 4:48PM
Mike
WE NEED THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC NOW. AS SOON AS POSSABLE PLEASE PLAY IT. I went to target today it was all set up for Christmas AND the bell ringers are outside of the stores now!!!! PLEASE NOW!!!
11/06/2010 8:34PM
Martin
I have to say Nov 1st is the right time its the official start to the Holiday seasons lately. I would love for it to start anytime I enjoy it so much and since you have different music than I do on CDs its always a pleasure to do the Major holiday cleaning while listening to the Christmas mix.
11/07/2010 5:46AM
Mike
NOW PLEASE! As the weather gets colder it is nice to have christmas music to warm you up inside :) Even the guys at @thesantatracker (people behind santa-tracker.com) are calling you out!
11/07/2010 12:16PM
Jay
I'm so extremely happy to see other people want the Christmas music to start as badly as I do. I was all ready to go on Nov 1st and listen to that wonderful music only to have my heart broken. Come on, don't make me beg for it. Please start the Christmasmusic?
11/07/2010 9:25PM
Martin
Just dont judge who is asking for it on here check out your facebook pageand 99.1s you will se many many people want to hear christmas music why not just ive what the people want?
11/08/2010 2:44AM
Joelle
Can you please start playing Christmas music this week. You guys play the best music at Christmas and this anticipation is killing me!! I can't focus on anything because I keep thinking about this!!!
11/08/2010 6:07AM
Martin
I dont get it people what Christmas music and your not playing it. You disappoint me so much. I dont know what kind of idiot is your station manager? Stations over the country are playing but not in Milwaukee Wi cause 99.1 is being a scrooge. I say BAH HUMBUG to you. If any other Milw starts playing it I will be going to them and staying.
11/08/2010 9:20AM

Cannot wait to hear the Christmas music. I am already halfway through my shopping and starting dragging my decorations out of storage to go up around Thanksgiving. Really puts me in a happy mood when I hear holiday music.
11/08/2010 12:07PM
Chris
Alright either play it now or tell us when you are going to play it this is like not announcing a day and time when the packer game is you will just have to flip through and find out yourself. You guys are just ignorant and obviously don't care about the fans of your radio station who have been asking when and requesting christmas music for the past week. When you don't respond to your fans that have been asking that says that you don't care even though we all know you do put up a date so we can all know when to tune in and start enjoying our holiday season at that time
11/08/2010 1:16PM

First of all. I will take a guess and say Christmas music will start on Nov 12th. Which around the same date it started last year. All of those people saying the station doesn't care about its listeners are being silly. They DO care. But, a radio station is also a business. With the new methods for radio ratings, stations need to be careful not to alienate existing users who are not ready for the format flip. I'm pretty sure the audience who isn't ready for christmas music is bigger than the audience who is. I for one LOVE Christmas music, but...it is WAY to early for that. I'd prefer they don't start it until Thanksgiving, but doubt they will wait that long..

Christmas music ASAP!! I would love to wake up tomorrow to christmas music! I have been in the christmas mood since september!!!! Don't let me down please and thank you!! :)
11/09/2010 6:16AM
Jordan
THANK YOU! haha I woke up to them previewing Christmas music! I guess i got what i asked for, but now how about some continuous Christmas music. :)
11/09/2010 3:33PM
Paul
I agree with some. You know when your going to start playing it, just inform people so they don't have to worry about it. Enough with all this "Santa tells us when to start"! Just inform people! I'm ready but why wouldn't you start? 2 years ago the Mix was the highest rated station around the time they were playing Christmas music.
11/10/2010 7:17AM
Paul
The least you could do is let everyone know the day you are going to start. WMYX knows exactly what day and time but enjoys the attention. They were the highest rated station 2 years ago around the holidays because of Christmas music. Enough with the "it's up to Santa" nonsense.
11/10/2010 1:56PM
Tara
NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW! PLEASE!! This is just plain mean! I need the Christmas music! How can you not listen at ALL to your listeners!?
11/12/2010 8:19AM
Cal
If it was up to Santa or your listeners. The Christmas music would of started November 1st!! My guess is some Scrooge there is delaying the start of Christmas music! Last I checked, the Grinch and Scrooge lost out to Christmas!!

Great visit from Mom-Mom!
My Mother-In-Law’s been in town for the last 10 days, visiting from Phoenix.   There are 2 reasons that Mom-Mom came to visit:  to see her Grandchildren  and …to see her grandchildren!  Seriously!  That’s perfectly fine, we KNOW she loves us too!  Wait, make that 3 reasons…our house is spotless now too…THANKS MOM! I think we’ve shown Mom a great time during her visit.  Sarah and the kids took her to the Milwaukee County Zoo, then a pool day at Cool Waters and the last thing we did was Festa Italiana!  THAT was her favorite! Festa Italiana was AMAZING!  We went on Friday night and HOLY RICEBALLS!  And lasagna sticks!  And zucchini sticks!  And eggplant sticks!  And calamari!  And CHOCOLATE CANNOLIS!  SOOOO many great foods to eat, music to hear, things and people to see…was a great experience!  Can’t wait for next year! As always, THANK YOU for reading and for listening to 99.1 The Mix!  Hope you have a GREAT week!   -Mark Summers

Celebrate National Watermelon Day with Proper Harvesting of Watermelon
Take a break and enjoy a refreshing slice of watermelon as you celebrate National Watermelon Day on August 3rd. This tasty fruit is high in Vitamins A, B6, C and potassium. It contains even more lycopene than tomatoes - the red pigment thought to reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease and age related eye disorders. Eat it fresh, blend it into a smoothie, create a cocktail, add it to a salad or pickle the rinds. And don't forget to save the seeds for a seed-spitting contest. If you grow your own watermelon, harvest it when fully mature. This is when the curly tendrils near the stem turn brown and dry, the side touching the ground turns from light green to yellowish-cream, the rind turns dull and is hard to penetrate with your thumb nail. Or visit your local farmer's market and buy a few to enjoy. Then plan on adding one to next year's garden. A bit more information: Watermelons can be grown in a pot or trained up a trellis to save space. Allow vines to crawl over the deck or patio to add greenery at ground level. Or train the vines up a trellis to save space. Support the fruit with a cloth sling to prevent it from breaking off the vine.

Wine Bottles – Out of the Recycling Bin and Into the Garden
Stop! Don’t recycle those wine bottles, instead give them a second life in your garden. Use wine bottles to create a colorful edge along a path or around a planting bed. Set the bottle, top-side down in the ground.  Individual bottles make great hose guides.   Or create colorful outdoor lighting. Remove the bottom of the bottle with a glasscutter. Place over LED bulbs. Strategically place individual wine bottle lights throughout the garden or use multiple bottles over a string of lights.   Put your glasscutter to work creating a planter. Remove a section from one side of the bottle. Lay the bottle on its side, secure in place, fill with soil and plant.   Or remove the top of the bottle. Invert and place in the bottom of the bottle. The original opening is now your drain hole and the bottom of the bottle is your saucer.   And of course you can always place them on a bottle tree.   A bit more information: Convert wine bottles into watering devices. Punch a small hole into the soil of your container garden. Fill the bottle with water, invert and place into the soil. Plant Nannies are hollow terra cotta spikes that can be set into the soil to hold the wine bottle in place.   For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Leaf Spot on Rudbeckia
Once thought to be the answer to low maintenance perennial gardens, Goldstrum Rudbeckia’s reputation has been tarnished by several leaf spot diseases.   A bacterial and several fungal leaf spot diseases cause purplish-black spots on the leaves of rudbeckia. Severe infestation can totally blacken the leaves and cause the plants to dieback a bit earlier in fall.  Fortunately most of the diseases are cosmetic and the plants will continue to flower and return each year.   Reduce the risk of this disease by providing adequate light and air circulation around the plants.  Use a soaker hose or watering wand to apply water directly to the soil when needed.    In fall, remove and destroy all diseased plant parts.   If disease is a yearly problem, plant more resistant cultivars like Becky, Cherokee Sunset, Irish eyes, or Prairie Sun.   A bit more information:  Or keep the plants and hide the diseased leaves. Plant something slightly shorter in front of the Goldstrum Rudbeckia plants to mask the discolored leaves, but allow the flowers to show through.   For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Crown Rot Causing Sudden Wilting and Death on Ajuga (Bugleweed)
Sudden wilting, yellowing and death of ajuga, also known as bugleweed, means crown rot may have invaded the planting. This fungal disease is most common in warm wet or humid weather. It first appears as sudden wilting and dieback in colder climates and yellowing and death of plants in warmer areas. The stems of infected plants turn brown or black and rot.    This disease can be introduced into the garden on infected plants or soil or spread by tools and water. Since the disease is in the soil it is difficult to eradicate.   Remove and destroy infected plants and the surrounding soil immediately. Be sure to disinfect your tools with a one-part bleach and nine-part water solution during and after the process.   If the disease continues to spread or has destroyed much of the planting, it is time to start over in a new location with disease-free plants.   A bit more information:  Reduce the risk of crown rot to healthy plantings by thinning groundcover plantings every few years or before they become overcrowded. And avoid planting crown rot susceptible plants in the bed where the Ajuga died.  Consider amending the soil with compost, peatmoss or coir to improve drainage before planting.   For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Cool Splash Diervilla Shrub for Shady Gardens
Brighten up the shade with a Cool Splash Diervilla.   This cultivar of the southern bush honeysuckle was selected for its creamy to yellow leaf margins. The variegated leaves are topped by fragrant yellow flowers in midsummer. They help attract hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden.   Cool Splash is hardy in zones 4 to 8 and grows equally well in full sun or partial shade with moist well-drained soil. Once established, it is heat and drought tolerant.   This small-scale shrub suckers, forming a dense mass of cascading branches. It eventually reaches 2 to 3 feet tall and wide, making it suitable for small space gardens as well as mixed borders and shrub beds.  Use it to mask leggy stems or visually anchor taller trees and shrubs to the ground.   And don’t let the common name honeysuckle fool you. Though a member of the same family, this is not the invasive honeysuckle taking over our woodlands.   A bit more information: Combine Cool Splash with shade tolerant perennials. Hosta, astilbe, Brunnera, coral bells and ginger are just a few. For more shade tolerant shrubs watch my Shrubs Made for the Shade video.   For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com
