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
Ally S
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
Jen
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
Bob
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..
11/08/2010 5:08PM
Jordan
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!!

"I Think She Lost Her Mind in the Hollywood Madness"
So, this is interesting. The other night, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Miley Cyrus threw on a wig, big glasses and a business suit, and pretended to be a reporter from Australia. She grabbed a camera crew and went out onto Hollywood Boulevard to interview people about Miley Cyrus. It's actually pretty funny, and it ends the way you'd sort of expect a Miley Cyrus bit to end. Give it a look...

Knock Me Over With a Feather
When the Ashley Madison scandal broke, a lot of people looked to Noel Biderman, the company's CEO who co-founded the "cheating" site with his wife, for answers. In an interview that broke just this past weekend in which he was referred to as the King of Infidelity, he said that he and his wife did not practice the company motto: "Life is short. Have an affair." (The folks at Huffington Post Canada have the interview, and a video about it.) In a 2013 interview, Amanda Biderman had this to say about what would happen if Noel cheated on her: "I would be devastated if (Noel) did it to me. But I would not blame a website. Ashley Madison is not creating cheaters. It is servicing a need that is there, that exists. And unfortunately, it exists. It's sad.'' Well, guess whose emails got leaked as part of the data breach and have now been made public? And guess who's allegedly been having affairs? None other than the CEO himself. I wonder if Amanda has logged onto DivorceLawyer.com yet...?   Ashley Madison CEO's emails reveal he lied and had multiple affairs http://t.co/dkTim2w25U // guy creating cheating site cheats. surprised? — gavin richardson (@gavoweb) August 27, 2015

No More Anchor Babies!
Anchor babies. It's a term that's been tossed around like a hot potato early in this presidential season, especially among the Republican candidates. It's the way they've been describing children born in this country to illegal immigrants. Constitutionally, that grants the children automatic US citizenship, providing an "anchor" to which the parents will cling in hopes of being allowed to stay here. Many Republicans say that has to stop, no matter what the Constitution says. Finally, the folks at Funny or Die have found a way to explain why that should happen. And not one moment too early...   America Under Attack: Anchor Babies from Funny Or Die

The Most Unlikely Duet of All
Taylor Swift sold out five shows in Los Angeles. Throughout the run, she brought up a bunch of her friends to sing with her, to the delight of all in attendance. Folks like Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake and Lisa Kudrow. Yes, Lisa Kudrow. She joined Taylor on stage to sing "Smelly Cat," a song she sang as Phoebe on Friends. Not only did Taylor know the song, so did the crowd. Check it out.   .@taylorswift13 got @LisaKudrow on stage to perform 'Smelly Cat' 😍😍 pic.twitter.com/F90IsokXcB — The Rob Ellis Show (@TheRobEllisShow) August 27, 2015

"There's Been an Awakening"
The geekosphere erupted yesterday when the Disney folks released a teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It's all of 15 seconds, and available exclusively on Instagram. And it doesn't really show anything new, except for a guy holding a blue light saber, going up against the guy with the red Game of Thrones-style broadsword light saber. Which prompted all sorts of discussions and theories that will keep the Star Warriors busy until the next teaser trailer. Check it out.     There has been an awakening... #StarWars #TheForceAwakens A video posted by Star Wars (@starwars) on Aug 27, 2015 at 10:00am PDT

Betty White's Next TV Gig
Betty White could well be the hottest actress on TV right now. She's done all sorts of guest spots on all sorts of shows, and she just wrapped up a six-season run of Hot in Cleveland on TV Land. Now, she'll be guest starring on Fox's long-running Bones as a squintern. Don't worry, I had to look it up too. Squintern is the word Booth (David Boreanaz) uses to describe the people who assist Doctor Brennan (Emily Deschanel) in the lab. The folks at TV Line report that Betty White will play Dr. Beth Mayer,  an accomplished, sharp as a tack squintern who is brought in to assist in a murder linked to fantasy football — which just happens to be one of her many areas of expertise. With a half century of work under her belt, Dr. Mayer is considered the world’s most experienced forensic anthropologist..." You'll have to wait until the end of October for Betty to make her appearance. And no, they won't be renaming the series Old Bones. That would be wrong. Meanwhile, here's the incredibly sappy promo Fox created for the show's upcoming season...

"Oh, I WILL Take This on the Plane"
Some people are silly, I guess. Like this woman who tried to get on board a flight at Beijing Capital International Airport with a $200 bottle of Remy Martin XO Excellence cognac. When the airport security folks told her she'd have to leave it behind, she did what any logical human would do She drank the entire bottle. And got so drunk - fall-down drunk, in fact - that she wasn't allowed to board the fight. I guess she showed them, huh?

"See a Bus, Don't Move"
Deva Dalparto runs a web and YouTube site called MyLifeSuckers.com, dedicated to the moms of the world. But you don't have to be a mom, or even a parent, to enjoy the videos and blogs she posts. Her latest - just in time for Back to School Season - is "Bus, Don't Move," a parody of the 80s hit, "Bust a Move." It's pretty funny, and it also carries an important safety message to motorists: when you see a school bus, don't move.

Les Miserables = Less Miserable
You don't have to be a fan of Les Miserables - either the Broadway show or the movie - to appreciate this flash mob. The West Des Moines School District (in Iowa, of course) was holding its district-wide welcome to school meeting for teachers. And to put a little zest into the day, some teachers put together a teaching-oriented parody of one of the show's biggest ensemble pieces, "One Day More." At first, no one knew what was happening. But as more and more teachers stood up to sing their parts and join the others on stage, the rest of the audience really got into it. When it was done - and done quite well - the performers earned a standing ovation.

Ashley Madison, the TV Show?
One of the biggest data breaches going these days is the one involving AshleyMadison.com. That's the site where you can sign up and arrange an extra-marital affair if you're so inclined. Like they say, "Life is short. Have an affair." Now, a team of Hollywood producers has revealed they're working on a fictionalized show based on the website, about a single mom who launches the site as a way to make ends meet. Why now and why this, you wonder? “Anytime 30 million people are doing anything, it becomes worthy of a real discussion,” one of the producers told US Weekly. So, let's see if this ever makes it to air. The show is tentatively titled Thank You Ashley Madison. Meanwhile, the folks at Entertainment Tonight talked about what the breached data shows about the least- and most-faithful states in the USA. You might be surprised!

The End of SuM&Mer
I'm not in any hurry to get to fall, but apparently, the M&M people are. They just announced their newest flavor, and it has "fall" written all over it. New Pumpkin Spice Latte M&Ms, featuring the brown M&M on the packages wearing a scarf and holding a cup of latte. I'm sorry, it's too early. Take them back, M&M people! Just another month. That's all I ask. One. More. Month! Meanwhile,watch this hilariously awkward amateur food-tasting review about the new M&Ms posted to YouTube at the beginning of the week...

Space Oddity in Space
File this in your #TBT drawer: it's a video from a couple of years ago. I missed it, maybe you did too. Astronaut Chris Hadfield pulled a tour aboard the International Space Station in 2013. He was known as being media-savvy, steadily tweeting and doing other entertaining things. Like this little gem: performing David Bowie's "Space Oddity" in space. He tweaked the lyrics a bit - since space travel has changed a bit since Bowie recorded the song in 1969. The floating guitar and the floating singer really make this work. And Chris has a pretty decent voice.

Kim's Biggest Problem
The newly crowned queen of Instagram might have trouble in her kingdom. According to Star magazine - and you know they'd never lie! - Kim Kardashian has gained 65 pounds in her second pregnancy, and Kanye West is not at all happy about it. Kanye believes, according to the tabloid - and you know they'd never lie! - that Kim is gaining weight because she's using her pregnancy to binge on donuts and ice cream. And he wants her to lose the weight before she has the baby. If any of this is true, sounds like Kim's biggest problem is not the weight, but the maroon her got her pregnant.     RP: @carladibello GOOD MUSIC, GOOD TIMES!

The $1.5 Million "Ooops!"
Before we go any further, let me just say, I feel bad for the kid, okay? And now, the story. A 12-year-old visiting a museum in Taipei, China tripped and fell. No big deal, except he used a painting worth $1.5 million to break his fall. And in the process, he managed to punch a hole in the painting. Watch the video. And tell me this kid's face isn't on a warning poster at museums around the world by now.

"Go Back to Univision"
When it comes to freedom of speech, it sounds like Donald Trump believes it applies only to him. Okay, so maybe that's a broad statement to be making based on one little incident, so you decide. The Donald's holding a press conference in Dubuque. A reporter from Univision - a Spanish-language television network aimed at America's Hispanic population - tried to ask a question. The Donald told him to sit down, as he hadn't been called. The reporter persisted, and it turned into a bit of a verbal tennis match, which involved The Donald telling the reporter to "go back to Univision." Then The Donald made a duck-lips face to his security team, and the reporter was removed. What do you think? Freedom of Donald Speech? Watch the video - decide for yourself.

No Sex in the City for Sarah Jessica Parker?
So, here's an interesting revelation. Originally, Sarah Jessica Parker did not want to play Carrie Bradshaw in Sex in the City. She reluctantly filmed the pilot and forgot about it. And when she found out the series had been picked up a few months later, she begged HBO to let her out of her contract. The story comes from a Broadway actor who recently spent some time doing a show with SJP and hubby Matthew Broderick in Massachusetts. HBO prevailed, as we know. But imagine if they hadn't. It's hard to picture anyone else playing that role. Of course, that's always difficult in retrospect. I don't think it would have been the same, do you? In case you've forgotten the show, here's a trailer for the first movie that the series spawned...

The Guy Who Got a Whole Lot of Things Right
I just stumbled on this trailer for what appears to be an epic documentary about Walt Disney. The folks at PBS are presenting Walt Disney as part of their American Experience series. They call it an unprecedented look at "the life and legacy of one of America’s most enduring and influential storytellers." Watch the trailer. It looks fascinating. And mark your calendars for the premiere on September 14 and 15.

Looks Like the Devil Went Down to Congress Instead
County music legend Charlie Daniels posted an open letter to the Congress of the United States yesterday. To say he's not a happy camper is a darned accurate statement. He writes about how the courage that our country's leaders have shown in the past, and bemoans what he sees as the loss of that courage... "The courageous politicians that once championed this nation have been replaced, for the most part, by a breed of milksop, politically correct, scared of their own shadow, pushover, pathetic excuses for public servants who are supposed to be representing a constituency of citizens who have to live with the circumstances of their timid folly." Not happy in any way. He thinks the members of Congress should just pack up and go home, as he doesn't hold them in high esteem. "You're no longer men, you're puppets, you're caricatures, jokes, a gaggle of fading prostitutes for sale to anybody who can do you a political favor." Charlie's got an awful lot to say. Check it out, if you like, on his Facebook page. You can even react to it, if you like.

So This is a Preview? Not in Your Wildest Dreams!
So Taylor Swift tweeted a 15-second preview of her newest tune, "Wildest Dreams," on Sunday. It shows a variety of shots of animals running or flying, Taylor getting up close and personal with a guy, a biplane flying into the sun, and a close-up of Taylor's eye. And that's it. Guess what it doesn't feature. Music. Shouldn't a teaser for a music video feature - oh, I don't know - music? Want to see the full version - perhaps with music included? Tune in to the Video Music Awards on August 30.   Wildest Dreams music video preview. Full video debuts VMA night.

Welcome to the Legion of Honor
Three Americans were praised and awarded France's highest honor on Monday, as thanks for their actions in thwarting a gunman aboard the high-speed train from Amsterdam to Paris last Friday. France's president, Francois Hollande, awarded the Legion d'Honneur to the three - two of whom are servicemen - plus a British citizen who helped in the takedown. "We are giving you the highest distinction of the country to show you how much we appreciate what you did. So this Legion d'Honneur is representative of your courage and also your incredible act of humanity … to save those also on the train." Pretty amazing story...

We Had Karate Kid All Wrong!
Thirty-one years ago, The Karate Kid made a bit of a splash in the movie world. Since then, it's become something of a classic. But, according to this retrospective, we've had the whole movie wrong all along. Daniel (played by Ralph Macchio) is the villain here, not the victim. "Wax on wax off" will never be the same again...

"Cain't Nuthin' Happen to You!"
Over the weekend, a video surfaced showing former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Chris Carter speaking to the 2014 NFL freshman class. Ordinarily, no big deal. Veteran passing on his knowledge to a bunch of rookies. Until... "Just in case y'all gonna decide not to do the right thing, if y'all got a crew, you got to have a fall guy in the crew." That's right. If you're new to the NFL and you're going to do something you shouldn't be doing, make sure you've got a hanger-on who'll be happy to say he did whatever it was so that you're off the hook. Wow. Just wow. Chris has apologized since the video hit. So far, the NFL says they don't condone that - but notice the logos on the walls behind Chris - and ESPN, where Chris works as a commentator, says it doesn't involve them. So he gets off, without even having a fall guy.

Meet the Creepy Meat Guy
So this is one of those weird stories. Residents of an apartment complex in Gastonia, North Carolina reported seeing a mysterious cloaked figure lurking in the area, possibly dropping raw meat near playgrounds. Police are investigating - so far, no clues. People are scared - and not just because he looks like the Emperor from the early Star Wars trilogy either. The computer-generated voice with this video makes it even creepier...

Hurry Up and Don't Panic?
Yesterday was not a good day for the global economy. The major stock markets took a major hit, thanks mostly to China's economic distress. So, why not take that as a sign of the financial apocalypse? That's what a former advisor to England's former prime minister did yesterday, offering three bits of advice to anyone biting what he was tweeting: Get hard cash in a safe place Stock up on bottled water, canned goods enough household essentials for a month Agree on a spot where you and your loved ones can meet in case phones and other bits of infrastructure break down This is what happens when you go to sleep watching Fear the Walking Dead and wake up to an instant 1100-point plunge on the Dow Jones. I love this reply to his third point... @DPMcBride So, is this happening in the next hour or so, or should I still get lunch? — Hank Single (@Hanksingle) August 24, 2015
