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

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

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

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!!

Don't Believe It? Just Watch!
"Uptown Funk" is one of the hottest tunes in the country. It's one of those songs that gets your blood pumping and toes tapping. Until now. Thanks to Alex Bove and the Dancing Grandpas, "Uptown Funk" got slowed down - well, a little bit. It's called "Oldtown Cover," and everyone in the video is at least 65 years old... So some of the moves are way slower than the Bruno Mars version. Naturally.

Making the Most of Nothing
Steve Harvey has proved himself a master of making the most of some of the ridiculous moments on Family Feud. But this one from last month takes the cake. Simple question: "Other than fruit, name something you might choose by squeezing it first." But neither contestant would buzz in. Because neither one could think of an answer. And that left Steve to fill the gap while the show sort of reset itself. Watch!   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Family Feud 2.

Live Long and Prosper
Leonard Nimoy, best known for playing the iconic Mister Spock in a variety of Star Trek movies and TV shows, passed away on Friday at the age of 83. Four days earlier, he posted his final tweet, which sounds like he knew he was leaving... A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP — Leonard Nimoy (@TheRealNimoy) February 23, 2015 Since he passed, a lot of media outlets have been posting tidbits about him and Spock. One of the more interesting is this interview from several years ago where he explained the origins of Spock's famous hand gesture that went along with the Vulcan salute, "Live Long and Prosper."

Kelly Quits the Cops
Kelly Osbourne went through with her threat to leave Fashion Police. Last week, she was pretty upset over a comment her co-host Giuliana Rancic made about Zendaya's dreadlocks that created quite a stir. She made her departure official on Friday, and instantly, her mother - Sharon Osbourne of The Talk - applauded her. .@KellyOsbourne, I am so proud of you. You can never be bought. You always wear your heart on your sleeve. #ProudToBeYourMum — Sharon Osbourne (@MrsSOsbourne) February 28, 2015 Meanwhile, Billy Bush from Access Hollywood took a few shots at Kelly before her departure, and that angered the other half of Kelly's DNA pool - her dad, rocker Ozzy Osbourne - who had a choice tweet for Billy... @BillyBush stop acting like a bitch. Act like a man. Lay off Kelly or we'll be going to hospital to get my foot out of your ass. God Bless. — Ozzy Osbourne (@OzzyOsbourne) February 27, 2015

When in Chicago...
On Sunday, thousands of people jumped into Chicago's Lake Michigan. It was time for the annual Polar Plunge, which raised close to $1 million for Special Olympics On hand were a few celebrities. Vince Vaughn, an area native, jumped in wearing a Chicago Blackhawks jersey. Lady Gaga showed up and took the plunge with her fiance, Taylor Kinney, one of the actors from Chicago Fire. Ironically, Gaga was covered pretty much head to toe, wearing more to take a dip in the lake than she wears to perform...     ❤️ feels so good to do things for a good cause like the Special Olympics. It's great donate money, but also great to donate a gesture of love for those who deserve to be showered with it. A photo posted by @ladygaga on Mar 1, 2015 at 9:24am PST Check out the video from The Chicago Sun-Times that includes some stills of Vince, Gaga and Taylor...

50 Shades of SNL
Dakota Johnson, star of 50 Shades of Grey, hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Her opening monologue wasn't bad. She poked fun at 50 Shades - actually took a couple of good shots at it. And interestingly, she introduced her parents - Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson - who were in the front row. Only Don spoke. Probably just as well...

Growing Scented Geraniums Indoors and Out
Add a bit of aromatherapy to your indoors with scented geraniums. Give the leaves a gentle pet and enjoy the lemon, rose, apple, peppermint or pine fragrance. Place the plants in areas where you brush by the leaves or can easily give them a pat to release and enjoy the fragrance. Though grown for the fragrant leaves, these plants will produce attractive, but less showy flowers than the popular bedding geranium. Both are truly Pelargoniums, but most gardeners know them by their common name of geranium. Grow these as houseplants in a sunny window or a sunny location outdoors during frost-free weather. Scented geraniums are hardy in zones 10 and 11 and must be moved indoors for the winter in most areas. Use a quality potting mix for indoor plantings or grow them outdoors in well-drained soil for best results. Remove the faded flowers and pinch back the stems as needed. A bit more information: Start new plants from cuttings taken from healthy plants. Take a 4-inch piece of the stem with leaves, remove any flowers, and root. Or use trimmings made when pruning back your plant. For more details, listen to my audio tip on Starting New Plants from Cuttings.

Showing Your True Colors
It's entirely possible the world went insane on Thursday. Someone posted a picture of a two-toned striped dress to Tumblr on Wednesday, and asked simply: “Guys please help me - is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can't agree…" And then the digital world exploded. Is it white and gold? Or blue and black? It's turning into an almost uncivil war. All sorts of people weighed in, and their opinions are strong. Some, like Taylor Swift, are simply confused. I don't understand this odd dress debate and I feel like it's a trick somehow. I'm confused and scared. PS it's OBVIOUSLY BLUE AND BLACK — Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) February 27, 2015 The folks at The Today Show have the skinny. Or do they? You be the judge.   Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Working Out with Queen Bey
Ever wonder how Beyonce keeps herself fit and toned? Wonder no more. Because on Wednesday, the Queen herself released an Instagram video to show herself in action, keeping fit and getting toned. The video is speeded up to the tune of "Eye of the Tiger," but it shows Beyonce moves. Think you can keep up?     Celebrating the 5th anniversary of Let's Move! #GimmeFive @michelleobama 💪 A video posted by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on Feb 25, 2015 at 1:52pm PST

Llamas on the Lam
A couple of llamas got loose in Sun City, Arizona yesterday afternoon, and the helicopter-shot video of the event quickly went viral. Fox News picked it up, and (sorry) ran with it. Shepard Smith provided running commentary on the "llama trot," and some of it is pretty funny. It's just not clear that it's intentionally funny. "Were they someone's, like, backyard llamas?" he wondered. "Were they babysitting?" "This is something I've not seen recently in New York," he said, "and we seem to see all kinds of weirdness up here in the New York." We'll call this a slow news day phenomenon...
