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!!

Your Name is Neil Diamond...
Neil Diamond's kicking off a new concernt tour, and he's started on the talk show circuit. He popped into The Tonight Show to chat with Jimmy Fallon about his legendary career - he's a member of both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, you know. But the conversation turned to his name. "Neil Diamond" is his real name, but early on in the business, he thought about changing it. Listen to the conversation for the full story. Then play it again, but mute the video, and tell me if this guy isn't looking a little bit like Sean Connery these days.

Slogans Can Hurt
Ellen Degeneres is all over the Red Bull class action lawsuit. You'll recall that the makers of the energy drink settled their case recently, offering a $13 million payout to consumers who may have been duped into believing that Red Bull gives you wings. On yesterday's Ellen, viewers got to meet a man who believes most slogans, and is suing everyone from Nike to Exxon to Ellen herself. Check it out.

Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?
There's a company that sells giant stuffed plush versions of various microbial organisms - among them, the Ebola virus, which they call "the T. Rex of microbes." And guess what? With so much talk about Ebola these days - and by "talk," I mean "panic" - the entire stock of Ebola toys has sold out. That includes the small Ebola doll ($9.95), the gigantic Ebola doll ($29.95) and the Ebola Petri Dish ($14.95). Yup, that's exactly what we want our kids playing with these days, isn't it? The video below was made about three years ago - but check it out anyway.

Kooking with Kardashian?
Kris Jenner - aka Mama Kardashian - showed up on The Today Show yesterday, hawking her new kookbook. Because when you think of kuisine, your mind instantly goes to "Kardashian," am I right? In her defense, she says she's been feeding her khildren since she had Kourtney when Kris was just 22. "They give you a baby, you've gotta feed it." If that doesn't get her some sort of Mom of the Year award - well, it will just be a travesty.   Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Man on a Leash?
Jada Pinkett Smith showed up to audition for the role of Fish Mooney on Fox’s Gotham with a man on a leash. Her character is a shady club owner in Gotham who has relationships with a lot of underworld characters – and maybe a less than honorable relationship with some of Gotham’s finest as well. Last weekend, she told folks at the PaleyFest that she wanted to show the producers that she understood her character. So instead of talking about Fish Mooney, she decided to show them. She showed up in a short wig and a long flowing gown with a shirtless man on a leash. She says she went “method.” The dude on the leash went “canine,” I guess. She also has a strong presence on Twitter, keeping in touch with her fans by tweeting.   Happy #FishMooney Monday Gotham is off the hook 2night. One of my favorite episodes. I'll tweeting 2night at 8 pm EDT pic.twitter.com/JBw4EPeHBp — Jada Pinkett Smith (@jadapsmith) October 13, 2014

Breaking Bad Action
A mom in Florida has started a petition to get the Toys ‘R’ Us chain to take Breaking Bad action figures off their shelves. The mom doesn’t like the message that the figures send, saying that kids mimic what their action figures do. The Walter White doll, for instance, comes complete with bags of cash and methamphetamine. The mom admits that she liked the series – even found it riveting – but she wants the figures out of Toys ‘R’ Us Bryan Cranston, who played Walter in the series, had an interesting take on the whole thing, with a fun tweet yesterday.   "Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures." I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest — Bryan Cranston (@BryanCranston) October 20, 2014

Fight at the Kardashian Corral!
Step aside, Kim, Khloe et al. According to a new survey and report, the most influential Kardashian right now is... Drum roll, please... Kylie Jenner.     Loading 1 too many selfies View on Instagram @-webkit-keyframes"dkaXkpbBxI"{ 0%{opacity:0.5;} 50%{opacity:1;} 100%{opacity:0.5;} } @keyframes"dkaXkpbBxI"{ 0%{opacity:0.5;} 50%{opacity:1;} 100%{opacity:0.5;} } A fashion website says that Kylie's popularity is consistenly rising - compared to the peaks and valleys experienced by the other young ladies in the Kardashian Kompound. And last week, Time magazine called Kylie one of the 25 Most Influential Teenagers list for 2014. People are saying this is the Kardashian to watch - and she'll eclipse her siblings soon enough.

Something's Amiss in the Sullivan Theater
Bill Mendez, a long-time cue card guy on The Late Show with David Letterman, lost his job recently. According to the reports, he got into an argument with one of the show's writers over the cue cards. The fight allegedly ended with Mendez grabbing the writer by the front of his shirt and pinning him to a nearby wll. So that's it - the cue card man has been fired. If you've got cue card experience and don't mind a short-term position, be sure to send in your application. Letterman is retiring in April. Maybe it would be better to apply with Stephen Colbert...

She Ain't Heavy, She Also Ain't My Brother
The head of the Russian Tennis Federation has been fined $25,000 for referring to Venus and Serena Williams as “the Williams brothers.”   He’s also been suspended for a year after his comments on a talk show on Russian TV.   Funny how the world works.   This guy’s got to pay a hefty fine and lose his job for a bit for saying that same things that earn guys like Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien and Jon Stewart millions.

It's Not Shoplifting - It's Scoring an Endorsement!
Last week, Joseph Randle, a running back for the Dallas Cowboys, was arrested for shoplifting at Dallas-area mall. He allegedly walked off with underwear and cologne. He's facing legal action, and the NFL hit him with a fine of $29,500. Not to worry. A marketing company in Los Angeles just signed Randel to a contract to help them market underwear. The company - MeUndies - will pay Sticky Fingers at least enough to cover the fine from the league. I guess there will be a separate cologne deal to cover the court costs. Yeah, this is a great example for kids everywhere.

Now That's a Good Start
If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you undoubtedly remember Khal Drogo, the Dothraki war lord who dominates and is then dominated by Daenerys Targaryen. He was about as intense as they come - dark, brooding, completely the opposite of Daenerys. Until his appearances on GOT as Drogo, Jason Momoa was a relative unknown. Now, thanks to GOT, he's getting all sorts of opportunities - not the least of which is he recent casting as Aquaman in an upcoming DC Comics film. His GOT audition tape has been making the rounds lately. He landed the role after performing a fierce Maori dance. After watching the tape, I can't imagine ANYONE saying no to this guy. Ever.

Egg on Your Faces!
So again, the folks at The Tonight Show sat around a production meeting, and came up with a game plan. "Let's have Jimmy and a guest play Russian Rouelette, but with eggs! So, they grabbed a carton of eggs. Hardboiled eight, left four raw. The idea: Jimmy and his guest will smash those eggs against their own foreheads until someone has smashed two raw eggs. But who to get? "I know! Let's get Bradley Cooper! He'll do it!" And they did. And he did. And it's done. And it's hilarious. Check it out!

Party at My Mom's House!
Actor Paul Rudd is a big fan of the Kansas City Royals. He spent the latter part of his childhood in Kansas, even studying at the University of Kansas. So the other night, when the Royals won the American League Championship Series and earned their way into the World Series - on the strength of eigh consecutive playoff wins, no less! - Paul was there. A local reporter caught up with him afterwards, and for whatever reason, the reporter let Paul ramble on about his activities as a fan this season. And then, Paul invited the world to party at his mom's house. Why not? I mean, he's a movie star, he can afford a few kegs, right? Imagine what he's going to have to do if the Royals win the World Series...

"There Should Be No Fan"
This is one of the most insane things you're likely to see this campaign season. On Wednesday, there was a debate scheduled between Florida's incumbent Republican governor, Rick Scott, and his challenger, former Democratic governor Charlie Crist. Charlie placed a small electric fan under his podium to cool him off. The rules of the debate said "there should be no fan." And because there was a fan, Rick refused to come out. Yes. That's what happened. The incumbent finally came out, but minutes later, after leaving the moderators of the debate twisting in the wind, trying to decide what to do. Very awkward and extremely insane. Check it out.

Panic Much?
The Ebola virus is scary. No doubt about it. And things are pretty rough in western Africa. That's for certain. And there are cases of Ebola here in the US. But some of the stories we're hearing are - what's a good word? - sensationalized? That's the tack taken by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. He pretty much skewers media coverage of the Ebola "crisis."

Veep's Son Out
The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that Hunter Biden, son of the US Vice President, was discharged from the US Navy Reserve in February. The Navy's not saying why, but the WSJ says it's because he tested positive for cocaine. Through his lawyer, the younger Biden stated, "It was the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge." A lawyer by profession, Biden joined the Navy late - signing up with the Reserves in 2013 at the age of 43. His dad, Joe Biden, hasn't made any comment yet. Check out the whole story by clicking here.

Fury-ously Funny!
There's never been any doubt that Brad Pitt has a sense of humor. Just watch any of the Ocean movies, or Mr. & Mrs. Smith. He's a funny guy. But he's on the circuit now promoting his new WWII film, Fury. Not so funny. But that doesn't stop him from being funny while promoting the movie - it's not like there's some sort of rule on that, right? Check out his breakdance conversation with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. Very funny indeed!

Did They Put a Ring On It?
Rumors are flying that Lady Gaga and her Chicago Fire boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, are prepared to tie the knot. Of course, neither of them is confirming that, so the tabloidetectives are piecing things together. It started a couple of weeks ago when actress Sophia Bush guested on Chicago Fire and posted a picture to Instagram that shows Taylor wearing a ring – that she says is not a prop for the show. Then The Daily Star reported that the two of them had a small family ceremony where they pledged their devotion to one another. And the famous “unnamed sources” say that Gaga and her boy plan to get married next year. Et voila! Lady Gaga’s engaged! Right?     Loading I'm REALLY excited to be on @nbcchicagofire tonight!

Coolest Sound Ever?
Cory Williams is a blogger and filmmaker who writes and talks a lot about Alaska. His commentaries are free-wheeling, and in the middle of one of his episodes, he and his girlfriend found a frozen lake outside Anchorage. Naturally, he had to try to skip a rock across the frozenness - I mean, you just have to, right? The skipper/ bouncer makes a very unusual and pretty amazing unexpected sound. But the best part is the unbridled glee Cory shows at the discovery, and at each rock skipped after the first. That's a lot of fun to watch! Skip ahead to about 3:45 for start of the rock skipping section...

Are They or Are They Not?
Star magazine's cover screams about "Ellen & Portia's Baby Joy! They're Finally Starting a Family." They're talking about Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi, married now for six years and rumored to be expecting a child. Who better to address those rumors than Ellen and Portia themselves? And where better than on Ellen's daytime TV show? No one and no place are the correct answers. Consider the topic put to rest - or is it?

Seriously? You're a Clown!
A club claiming to represent professional clowns in America (these are the dress-up kind of clowns, not the ones we send to Congress every couple of years) is very upset with the producers of American Horror Story. Why? Because of the show's use of a killer clown in its story line. The spokesperson for the club, Clyde D. Scope (that's his clown name, say it out loud a couple of times and you'll get it) says that he and his buddies "do not support in any way, shape or form any medium that sensationalizes or adds to coulrophobia." That's the clinical term for the fear of clowns. Which is a pretty common fear. Interesting that Clyde D. Scope and his pals are picking on AHS. Clearly, they missed Stephen King and Pennywise in "It." As for the club, if any members ever run into any AHS producers, they'll likely douse them with a bit of seltzer water - or at least ask them to smell the daisy on their lapels.

"... A Possible Blown Air Duct..."
You’ve just settled into your seat as your plane – carrying you and 189 other humans – takes off from San Francisco, on the way to Dallas. Suddenly, you hear a “loud popping and ripping noise” and the plane’s cabin walls start to buckle inward. We’ve all seen that movie, right? Except this was real life, this week, on an American Airlines flight… I’m sorry, but if this happened to me, I’d be taking a train for the rest of my life.

We Want Christmas! We Want Christmas!
Halloween is still two weeks ago, and already, the Christmas chant has begun. Not for a particular toy, not for a visit with Santa. But for calling December "the Christmas season" instead of "the holiday season." The residents of Marshield, Massachusetts - just south of Boston, near Plymouth - took up a petition demanding that their school committee reverse a ruling that turned Christmas vacation into a holiday break. Those who voted for the change said that old name celebrated only one tradition. The new name, they say, promotes inclusion, diversity and tolerance. At a meeting this week, the head of the school committee said they would listen to residents' concers, but would not engage in any dialogue on the matter. Because, you know, that might be too democratic, and insulting to other forms of government.

"I'm Not Gonna Miss You"
Back in the early 70s, country singer Glen Campbell hosted The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, one of the last true variety shows on TV. He had a string of hits like “Galveston,” “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “The Wichita Lineman,” many of which crossed into the pop music world. He’s a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. This week, Glen released his last recording – “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.” Sounds like a true-blue country title, but it’s more than that. It’s a love song dedicated to his wife, with the subtext of Glen’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Very touching, in so many ways.   “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”

Tackled With The Goods
Wow. A linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys was charged with shoplifting on Monday. While at a mall in Dallas, Joseph Randle is alleged to have picked up $123 worth of underwear and cologne. This is a guy who's making $495,000 for maybe five months' work. And he's got to grab up free tightie whities? Too bad he's playing for the Cowboys. Any other team's linebacker might have been able to outrun the security guards...
