We have been talking a lot about WHEN we should start playing Christmas music on the Mix. Get caught up on everything now:

PLEASE...start yesterday!!! Hey! Just a suggestion...the economy is NOT the greatest, help put people "in the mood" for heading to stores. Also, 10 months of the year is more than enough for music re-runs, so go for season-happy music. Oh Yeah! Please don't stop it when the clock hits 12:00 on the 26th. The Christmas Season is still alive then, too bad the stores start ripping apart their displays. Am waiting....!
now, start the christmas spirit already. i have on my own, so why can't everyone else.
NOW! Can't wait!
Play it now! Miss it desperately.
I think you coud make everyone happy by starting the xmas music now just don't play it exclusivly ease people into in with a few an hour and work your way up. Also if you play some of the new great xmas songs along with the classics it will hold interestlonger.
Yesterday. Seriously, our kids have been waiting for Nov 1 and the start of All Christmas Music All the Time, since Oct 1. They're sincerely disappointed.
Oh and I just saw that you're hoping to make "everyone in Southeastern Wisconsin happy". Good luck with that. I hope you realize that you'll never make everyone happy. If you find the perfect time for those that want Christmas music, you'll still havethe ones that are against Christmas altogether mad at you. :)
The day after Thanksgiving. I love Christmas music but when you play it before Thanksgiving people forget about the importance of Thanksgiving. Don't skip over one holiday because you think another one is more important. Thanksgiving is all about being with family and being thankful for what we have and everyone can celebrate that. Christmas is going to be hard for some families this year and I think we should focus on what we do have and be thankful for that instead of worrying about what we don't have and how we will get a gift for everyone. Thanksgiving is important so wait until Thanksgiving is over please!
We need a little Christmas, just this very minute. We need a little Christmas now!
I would love to start hearing it now, makes work lunch more enjoyable, but like some have said play some w/other music for now (for them), then full schedule from Thanksgiving to Christmas. If the stores want us to start shopping, it sure helps to get in the spirit.
please start it now....been checking since October 31st, I only listen to your station for the christmas music each year. Please light it up!
Christmas music makes me happy. You should start playing it now!
Please start playing Christmas music now. My daughter and I look forward to it.. For those who dont want to listen to it, thats what CD's are for...
I can't believe so many people want to hear it already--PLEASE wait until after Thanksgiving! I hate that we go from Halloween to xmas right away. There may be alternatives to listen to, but I want to listen to Kidd and Elizabeth, and the music they playnow. Jess--they have Christmas music CDs too...
Why haven't you started yet?? We were so excited on Nov. 1st and turned on your station first thing and were extremely disappointed... :-(
I boycotted your station last year when you starting playing Christmas music Nov 1st. The radio stations in Milwaukee are limited and by playing Christmas music so early people who aren't readyintrested have nothing to listen to. Sprinkle it in maybe next week. Solid Christmas music.... a few days before. I like the top 40!
OH NO! Please don't start it this early. I love Christmas music, BUT I listen to your station from 8am - 5pm Monday - Friday. It's way toooooo soon to start. I change stations when you start the all Christmas/all day long. And I miss you guys! Please wait until November 23rd. OK? That is still before Thanksgiving for those people that want to rush the season.
the sooner the better!!
I have been taunting my co-workers with the 24/7 christmas music for weeks!
I think that if Santa is going to start sitting in the middle of the mall and if the newest version of "The Christmas Carol" is going to be in theaters this weekend, you guys can start playing Christmas music. Being the pioneers of starting Xmas too early, you are kind of letting us down :)
NOW!!! I was so disappointed when I tuned in on Nov 1st and no Christmas music :(
Thanks for playing "games" with those of us who enjoy the Christmas music. My office now has tuned in to AOLradio, and will remain there for the season. You snooze, you lose.
ASAP (: i love the christmas mix
Start it as soon as possible. Its starting to get real cold, why not have some christmas music to go with it
It looks like the majority want it NOW. I agree. People need something to look forward to this year, it's been tough on many. Throughts of Christmas and the Holidays bring a sense of cheer and good times for most. If the stores can sell Holiday Decorations, seems like the right time to start the music!
Start the Christmas music!!!
If you guys aren't going to play Cristmas music, do you know when WRIT will be?
Now please...I've been waiting since the first of the month!
NOVEMBER 2ND!!!!! We were SO disappointed when we turned the radio on and there was no Christmas music. We don't listen to your station unless it's Christmas music, so please don't mix in other stuff. Those who want to hear other stuff can go else-where, or wait till after Christmas. C'mon, Christmas is only ONCE A YEAR!!!! Let's enjoy it while we can!!
Last year, didn't 99 start playing Christmas music right away in November? My girls dance in the nutcracker every year and begin preparing in late September. Once Halloween is over, we turn to your station to listen to Christmas music on the way to ballet. But it isn't there now.... hmmmm..... why?
Do you guys know when wRIT will start their xmas music?
Christmas music is good right after Thanksgiving. If you want to be first, if you want to add to the holiday season early because shopping is early, okay. But please 2 extra weeks is plenty. Last year was overkill. I turned off 99 until Jan.
NOW! I was so disappointed when you didn't switch over Halloween night this year. I listen WAY more when it's all Christmas than I do normally.
I would not like to hear Christmas music until after Thanksgiving. And then I would like to hear it mixed in with regular tunes, otherwise I just switch stations until January.
Play it now!!! I was hoping that I would hear it Nov. 1st. I need to get into the spirit ! Hearing it is a real energy boost for me and my family!
Please play it now!!!
Well, I can't play your game any more....Seeing as i can't stand the other music you play, you guys are off of my radio til i check the website and see the Christmas music has started. Maybe WRIT will start before you guys....I think there is one other Milwaukee station for Christmas, too.....See ya!!!
PLEASE PLAY IT ALREADY! It seems like a game of when it will start. Read the comments! Even channel 12 did the story because we're al wondering where are the bells!
I have been streaming this station at work for over 2 weeks now - but only in anticipation of Christmas music. Since last year you started on Halloween, I just assumed it would start the same time again. I've now had to resort to live365.com for my Christmas music instead.....
Thank you for waiting to start playing Christmas music. The day after Thanksgiving is great and even then, not all Christmas music. After all you are the MIX, so mix it up. I listen to you everyday except when you play only Christmas music. So, thank you again for waiting.
I was soo excited right before the 1st.All I have been talking about is three more days, two more days, then one more day. I woke up like a little kid on christmas turned on the radio. Nothing!!!!Like a lump of coal in my stocking. So I got bummed out and went back to bed.Seriously a true story.Jingo Bingo and the music some of favorite things. It brings peace and joy to the crazy season coming.
Please start now! I've been streaming a radio station from Cincinnati that went all Christmas a week ago... I'm a talk radio listener 10 months of the year, but look forward to switching over to wmyx every year on Nov 1st!
I must say I was very dissapointed when I turned on the radio Nov. 1st and did not hear the Christmas Mix. It seems to be a very sensitive subject in Milwaukee every year, and I understand your having to do what is in the best interest of your business.
What I don't understand are those that are so over-the-top against it! We're talking about a few extra weeks of Christams music. Its supposed to make you feel good, not angry! If the Christmas music gets you so upset, then I'm pretty sure WMYX is not your problem...
P.S. 94.9 in Madison is currently playing all Christmas music.
I just made a comment about this on my Facebook page. I love everything there is about Christmas, especially the music. My family thinks I'm crazy because as soon as the radio stations start to play Christmas music, that's all I will listen to until the holidays are over. I understand that not everyone is a "die-hard" Christmas music fan, so why not start it out gradually, mixing in Christmas music with the everyday playlist, until Thanksgiving and then go all Christmas after that. I think it's a good compromise for all!
please play those merry tunes soon! i was bummed when they weren't there november 1st. please put the christmas music on asap!
please please please play it now. im soooo in the christmas mood and on nov 1st i was waiting but nothing was on and i got pissed! who cares of what other people think that dont want the christmas songs to start....there is christmas stuff everywhere nowso why cant christmas songs come on too! :/ PLEASEEEE PUT THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC ON NOW!
I agree with a lot of people. MIX it up, since you are the mix and play regular music AND christmas music, then as it gets closer to christmas, go full time. BUT please, please, please play some NEW christmas music. I look the classics, but there havebeen a lot of great albums put out in the last coupe of years that deserve some rotation :-)
As much a I love Christmas music, I was shocked last year when your station began playing Christmas music the day after Halloween. It made me realize just how commericial the holiday has become. I think it's OK to start the Chrismas music a little before Thanskgiving, but please not yet, while Halloween is still a recent memory. And I do agree with Sarah, who said the Christmas music should continue several days after Christmas. It is so depressing to hear non-Christmas music the next day when the rest of us are still celebrating the season. Truthfully, that's when I turn off your station and switch to one of my many Chrismas CDs. One more thing - please continue to call it Christmas music. The word holiday is inaccurate and so overused!
Please play it now!!! I thought it would start on November 1st....but nothing. Stores are starting their christmas advertising....play the music!!! Please start now!!
start now i have been waiting a longgg time for it. It can make a lot of peopple more happy even if they are in tough times because all christmas music is joyful
Please start playing it now!! I stream the station at this time of year from Stockholm, Sweden, and I was extremely disappointed that there was no holiday music the 1st of November this year. It makes me so happy! Other people can listen to another station, right?
a lot of people are saying that they will NOT listen to your station because of the chistmas music" BAHHUMBUG scrooges".CHRISTMAS is only once a year.It is all about the kids and to see my sons face when " hey santa,hey santa" comes on makes me smile from ear to ear.if and when you find out can you please send me an e-mail?!!!!!!!!
I really would like you to start playing christmas music now. The Time Warner Cable Sounds of the Season music channel went to all christmas music on November 1st. And because I was looking for some christmas music to listen to at work I am listening toa station from Tulsa OK.
NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW WE ALL LOVE CHRISTMAS MUSIC AND I WANT IT NOW!
Now, now, now! I have been checking the station everyday waiting for the Christmas music to start! I was hoping you would have already started!
No. Please don't start Christmas music yet. It is just too much. After Thanksgiving is early enough.
Please start NOW!
Please play Christmas music asap! :)
I think the Christmas music should start asap b/c with the economy the way it is, I think it will put people in a little bit more of the Christmas spirit and maybe help them realize that even when times are tough, the holidays are all about spending timew/ family!
Yeah, Christmas is only once a year but we get it crammed down our throats earlier and earlier each year. If you want to hear Christmas music this early, play CD's at home. Christmas music shouldn't start till Thanksgiving. I'm by no means a Scrooge; I have children in the house but gee whiz, get real, people. The holidays are WAY too commercial. Christmas is about Christ, not about Frosty the Snowman.
At the earliest, after Thanksgiving. Love all of you people that want to start it ASAP, and want to skip over another great HOLIDAY. I do not listen to your station when you start it earlier than than thanksgiving. If you do, GO Lake FM.
I agree with the comment about playing Christmas music after the 25th of December. Remember the twelves day of Christmas start on the 25th, not end. Just because I don't want to hear Christmas music before Thanksgiving doesn't mean that I don't like it. I love it, but one Holiday at a time.
I think about a week before thanksgiving would be appropriate however let it play a little bit into the new year or at least until new years. People start getting into the holiday mood around thanksgiving but are still in the mood on December 26th. Also throwing in a few christmas songs before going to 24/7 christmas would be nice so we get a little bit of both and gradually phase into and out of the holidays. Thank you for the wonderful mix.
Please start playing the Christmas music now! We have been waiting for it since November 1st! It puts everyone in a good mood and we need that with the way the world is right now!
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!!???
"WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS......RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE.......
WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS NOW!"
Not till Thanksgiving and NOT 24/7, otherwise by the time Christmas rolls around, I'm so sick of it. Your station is called the mix, so please mix it. No need to be continuous!
still no Christmas music? I am very disappointed!
The debate over this is crazy. The answer is obvious.....The people that do NOT want to hear Christmas music have dozens of other radio stations to listen to. However, those of us that DO want to hear Christmas music have absolutely no other radio options in Milwaukee. We are relying on you, WMYX, to fill that void!!!!
If you start it November 1st like in the past. Virtually two whole months out of twelve, is just nauseating. So much for the Mix.
Just checking in for my office....Back to WRIT and/or 94.5 til tomorrow....See ya!!
Please start playing Christmas music as soon as possible...it's my favorite part of this time of year...it really puts the Christmas spirit in me. I was disappointed not to hear it on November 1st.
As I write this I am Listneing to Charter "Sounds of the Seasons". I think its hilarious that the nay sayers are so against the christmas music. I dont likle jazz music so you know what i just dont turn on 106.9. Its not that hard. If you dont want to watch Nascar you dont put it on. Its really easy, nobody is forcing you to listen to 99.1 all christmas mix. Start playing the chriustmas music now, there is a ton people that want to hear it. The others who dont just put on another station and enjoy the holidays. Its a time for family and friends, the christmas music seems to put people in a good mood. And above all stop complaining about the music, if it was every station in milwaukee I would agree with you but its only one, change it if you do not want to hear it and grow up.
NOW!!!! I was looking for it last weekend and was very disappointed to not hear it. Please. Right away!
Was looking for the Christmas last weekend! I'm so ready to hear the Christmas music!!!
bring on the Christmas music
My co-workers and I are extremely disappointed that the Christmas music isn't playing already on the Mix!!! We were looking forward to coming to work on November 2nd and hearing the sweet sounds of the Christmas season. Please start playing the music soon!!! We don't want to wait until Thanksgiving is over! LOVE THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!!
I agree with the person who said we should take it one holiday at a time. If you have Vetrens day music, I would love to hear some of that. If you have Thanksgiving music, I would love to hear that too.
I also agree with the person who said that Christmas begins with Advent, and the season ends in January with Three Kings. So I say wait until after Thanksgiving to start, and continue to play it after Christmas Day.
The best things in life are worth waiting for, so lets wait until the Christmas Season is truly upon us.
Really ready for it now!
Kohls has there own system playing it now.... and so should YOU!
Have one or two an hour starting now and then Thanksgiving evening go total Christmas music!
Please start it on Mon.Nov.9th,2009
94.9 WOLX of Madison made the switch and is playing Christmas music all the time. They win!!!! They have my ears for the rest of the season. Not sure if you guys can get this in Milwaukee but if you can its playing NOW!
For heaven's sake, quit talking about it and start playing it! I have been waiting...and waiting...and waiting!
Please play it NOW! My daughter and I were sooooo disappointed November 1st! START NOW 24/7 PLEASE.
We look forward to this all year.
I think Christmas music should be playing by the downtown Christmas parade. If you're going to wait at least start it then
Any time NOW yesterday would have been better!!!!!!!
Would LOVE to hear Christmas music played now and was disappointed when I was hyping it up to my kids how WMYX starts on Nov. 1st. We woke up that morning and were sad, but anxious to hear some Christmas music, but PLEASE rotate in MORE of a selection this year. EVERYONE and their brother has a Christmas album out! Thanks :) can't wait!
Where is the Christmas music? I have been waiting patiently. Please play it NOW!
Doesn't matter when YOU start playing Christmas music because I started listening to WOLX Madison 94.9..They are all Christmas all the time now.....A REAL CHRISTMAS STATION
There are people who need the Christmas music to start already! All the Scrooges can bah-hum-bug their way to another radio station!
I enjoy the Christmas music like anyone else. However listening to jingle bells while taking my daughter trick or treating last year was too much. In my opinion, it should start at Thanksgiving and continue thru New Years day as THIS is the Holiday season when people are visiting.
I think you should switch over as soon as possible due to the fact that santa is already at southridge, all the local stores are having their christmas sales already, and time warner cable channel 933 is already non-stop christmas music and as ben bork said 94.9 WOLX is too.
Hello, I e-mailed last Sunday when there was no Christmas Music. To heck with those that don't like it. Why are we always catering to the FEW that it offends to be politically correct? I AM CORRECT!!! I wait all year for this. Start as soon as you receive this comment. Thankyou. God Bless. Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year and stop putting it off!
94.9 WOLX? Hmmmmm never thought about that station. Maybe I should switch. C'mon, get on the train. I want to hear Christmas music when I get up tomorrow morning and have my coffee. Love YA!
Play it now! I get so excited on Nov. 1st when hyou usually start it. I'm disappointed that it's not on yet. I vote Christmas Music NOW!
PLEASE START ASAP!!! You guys are the reason why I start getting in the Christmas spirit. Please I beg you start you Christmas music as soon as you can, who cares what those non-believers say that November is too early to start, it's never t early to start Christmas!
Was so disappointed when I tuned in on the 31st ready to hear the Christmas tunes and...nothing. I love Christmas music and I think you should start right away. Besides, those who don't want to listen can turn it off. I think you've got enough fans that want it now.
NOW! Didn't it start earlier last year?
I think the Christmas music should play as soon as possible. I understand Oct 31 is a LITTLE soon, but now it's a little into Nov and all the stores already have most of their Christmas things out and i'm sure people would love to turn on some tunes and get those holiday spirits going. I know that I love listening to your station during this time of year because you are the only ones that really play a good mix of the songs. Well thanks, I hope it gets started soon.
Im thinking mid november is a good time to start, so theres a small buildup to Thanksgiving.
Thanks for the info about 94.9 - I've made the switch to them on my computer at work during the day. I think the Myxx is going to miss out on a lot of listeners as people will find other places for Christmas music and then just stay there.
Day after Thanksgiving! They way it used to be.... Let us enjoy the holiday (and turkey) and be thankful before we start in with Christmas.
Start the week of Thanksgiving but keep playing the music until New Year's! You always started to early in the past and ended to early.
Play it now, have to say I was pretty disappointed when it wasn't on the air like it has been the past two years. Obviously the majority likes the idea of having Christmas music on early, and all these Scrooges obviously don't see the irony in having the music end either the day after or a few days after. It's a joke, and so are those Scrooges.
Please play the Christmas music now!!!:)
Please start playing Christmas music NOW!!! We could all use some holiday cheer. I am disappointed it hasn't started yet; I was hoping it would have begun on November 1st. I look forward to it every year, and I know a lot of other people do to! The sooner you start it, the better!
Um, hello, I was so sad when I turned on the station to not here xmas music. Start it like 8 days ago already.
I think that it should start between this week and next week. Christmas music just makes me happy and puts me into the spirit. For the people that don't want to listen to Christmas music this early, just listen to your own music. Also, make sure you DO play Christmas music 24/7. The sense of Christmas spirit and happiness would not be the same if you went from a Christmas song to Taylor Swift or Kanye. It just would not work.
Yes, We Need A Little Christmas, NOW! The Christmas Mix Rocks My Christmas Socks! It also made Wikipedia so it's popular and people love it... I made a few cassette tapes last year and have to settle for that I guess. Quit doing the Waffling thing like you know who and play it already!!!!!
Stop Waffling like you know who! Just play it like Immediately. It's so popular it made Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia
Well, I agree, Nov. 1 could be a bit too early. However, now that the retail stores and tv are now advertising Christmas...PLEASE start playing the music. Actually, the REAL Christmas does not begin until Dec. 25th and continues 12 days from that point. BUT, I love Christmas music and considering what this country is going through right now, we could all use some uplifting music! GO FOR IT!
ABOUT 160 POSTS...
About 30 for waiting and
130 for playing xmas NOW!!!
What part of this dont you guys understand?
Please start the Christmas Music SOON!!! My family was soooo disappointed on Nov 1st. I will keep listening, however please don't wait until after Thanksgiving. Those people who will quit listening aren't loyal listeners and need to take their anti-Christmas opinions elsewhere and not destroy the beauty and peace of Christmas for the rest of us. The World needs this!!!
I also think you need to play Christmas at least until Jan 2nd (After New Years) as holiday parties continue that week as well. Thanks! Love it!!!
Please begin playing Christmas music now! So many of us are really looking forward to it and were so disappointed when it didn't start on November 1st. Thank you. We love you WMYX !!!
Christmas music from Madison here:
I am SO dissapointed they haven't started playing yet. My tree has been since the second week of October and I was anxiously waiting the Mix's start the music. The Mix has been KNOWN for starting early...that's part of the charm in the first place!
Thanks for sending out the Madison station Natalie! Now if only I could stream it into my car... :)
I am, along with others, disappointed that the question even came up and that you aren't playing it already. If the information is true, you had very high ratings last year as soon as you started Christmas music. Please start playing it today.
Start this week. I think you need more VARIETY in your christmas music selections but I want to hear it now!
I agree that part of the charm of the MIX is that it's always started early. I'm decorating this week and am looking forward to hearing the music soon too. I do wish however you'd have a little more VARIETY in your christmas music rotation. START TODAY!
Christmas Music from Madison...
The station from madison is
Those out west of the Milwaukee area migh be able to pick it up
Please start playing as soon as possible. Green Bay and Madison already have stations playing exclusively Chistmas music, why can't we?
i recently moved to south dakota and been waiting for you to start the chrisatmas music. i lived in the listening area for almost 32 years. please start soon i listen via my internet.
Heres the TWO green bay area stations .....
Please start now!!! You said last week it would be very soon. All of the malls are playing it and running Christmas sales, and waiting till now should take care of the 10% of Christmas Scrooges that have chimed in. I really hope it will be on tommorow after another disappointing morning today.
Please start playing the Christmas Music. I have to listen to the same 30 songs that my husband has on a CD and we need to hear some new songs. I know some people wont be happy listening to the Christmas Music, but it is time to start playing it. So please start playing the music NOW!!! thanks
I think Christmas Music Should be Started the Day After Thanksgiving Since the is the First Real Christmas Shopping Day!!!!!!!!
I want Christmas Music. You guys have always played it right after Halloween.
Start playing it now!!!! I love Christmas music and alot of people want to start listening to it now and the people who don't, probly don't wanna hear it at all. So please start playing it now.
Please start playing Christmas music. ASAP!
Be Different. We can hear regular music on every other station. I think every station even has the same playlist, :( I started decorating 3 weeks ago... I Love Christmas!... Does anyone from WMYX even bother to read the comments? Say Something, Say Anything, before it's too late and Thanksgiving is too late.
we all have been waiting!! tell ur big wigs to listen to the public and play what we wanna hear!! the few that will leave will not be missed! MARRY CHRIRTMAS!
oops might to type..........MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
hey i am 13 and i have been waiting for you people to get off your butts and start playing what we really want to hear COME ON! this is my b-day month and you people wont play my music who cares what those people think.BRING ON THE CHISTMAS!!!!!!!!!
You should of started Nov 1st like you use to. We need the x-mas spirit in these tough times.
I was only visiting your site to see WHEN the Christmas music would start!!! LOL Why not NOW??? Please??? I love to tune in and hear the newer songs... I can always make up a playlist on my mp3 player of my "have it" tunes, but I need to hear some NEW STUFF!!! So, in other words... Now would be fine to start playing Christmas music. Yeppers!!! *Angel*
WHERE IS MY CHRISTMAS MUSIC???
Please/please/please/please/please/please/please/please/please/please/ oh what the heck... PRETTY PLEASE???
This is the only time of year that I turn on the myx day and night. I am very anxiously waiting the Christmas music. It helps people budget their time instead of being rushed by christmas. And even Scrooge came out at the box office with record numbers. It is time to start the Christmas music. Please.
This is the one holiday that everyone is just a little nicer, a few more smiles, and even more caring. Please start it now.
Another hugely disappointing morning. One of the things that make your station unique is the Christmas Mix. The majority has obviously spoken and the results are in, you have waited long enough, please start the Christmas music today!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep tuning into the Mix every morning to check, and keep getting disappointed. When's the Christmas music starting??
WHERE IS THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC! I actually think I am not going to listen to your station now. I have found stations on slacker radio, 94.9 (Madison) and charter tv. I looked forward to the Mix's christmas music every year. I am very uspet that a few scrooges out there ruin it for everyone. So start playing, this is your most active blog with 95% of the people saying they want it NOW!!!!
Be nice if someone from the MIX would blog and at least give us some info!!!!!!!!
VERY disappointed in this radio station.........
The dissapointing feeling I have every morning I check to see if the mix had changed over to XMAS music is beginning to get to me. Please start it now. It has been long enough. 99.1 could have had my ratings since November 1st, instead it is my Ipod of Xmas music and 94.9 out of Madison. I promise to stop with the Ipod and the other station if you cross over.
Please start the Christmas music soon! Kinda disappointed that it isn't playing yet!
Please start asap. i am from milwaukee but go to school in la crosse so i listen online and since nobody plays christmas music up here, i would like to hear it from you guys soon
The majority has spoken. The sooner you start the Christmas music....the better!!
PLEASE START PLAYING CHRISTMAS MUSIC NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE SOONER THE BETTER!!!!!!!!
I emailed WRIT and mentioned that they could probably win the hearts of the christmas listeners if they start now (i'm sure they know that)....i hope they aren't as deaf to their listeners wants as WMYX it to their (former) listeners.....
I say start now. I don't listen to your station very much but I listen all the time when you play Christmas music. I am ready now. At least start mixing some in with the regular music. And I consider Thanksgiving part of the Christmas season so starting after Thanksgiving is late to me!
START IT NOW!!!!!
just respond to all of these people and stop playing around. It is obvious that people are ready for the music by the looks of this blog. At least one response would be nice so we can stop being disappointed day after day. Waiting until the Christmas Parade is way to late if that is the thought.
I've been waiting since Oct 31 to hear Christmas music. I want to hear the music NOW!! It makes me happy. Every day I check and every day I am so disappointed when I don't hear it. Please stop with the teasing and let's get on to the music :)
PLEASE NOW!! I've been waiting since halloween. please please please start it :(
please start playing it asap! i was pretty disappointed to not hearing it on Nov. 1! Please start NOWW! :) lol!
Now! Looking forward to it:)
Now!! Who is the grinch who stole it anyway?
I LOVE Christmas Music!! PLAY IT NOW!!! PLEASE
Now! I don't listen all the time, but it's disappointing that it hasn't started yet....
Another day without Christmas music in Milwaukee. I am currently listening to WOLX out of Madison. Whoever makes the first move in Milwaukee will have my ears for the rest of the season.
Pleeeees play it asap
PLEASE- PLEASE-PLEASE Start x-mas music asap!!! By the looks of ALL the comments, the people have spoken! We all could use alittle Christmas now, and your station can make it happen. Happy Holidays!!!
I have been looking forward to the Christmas music for weeks and I have to say I was pretty let down that I haven't heard it yet. I think anytime now would be a great time to start playing it!
Twas the month before Christmas and all through the MYX, Not a Christmas song playing, not even a hint... Though the listeners all waited in glee anticipation, it seems we'll just have to switch to a new station. Now it's almost time to stuff the bus, with no holiday cheer, I think I'll just stay home and slam down a beer. I anxiously await for those magical words to appear, and starting to chime... All Christmas Music, All Of The Time... And to All A Good Night
Last week, Kidd said that Christmas music was going to start "soon". Can someone please define "soon"? So disappointed that it's not on yet. :( PLEASE start playing Chritmas music TODAY!!
What a bummer...no christmas music and its November 11th...It would be nice if you guys would get that started..
Really dissapointed seeing as the christmas music has not started and its already November 11th..Thanksgiving is coming up and I really would like to listen to christmas music for the long drive to see my family..Kind of a tradition..so i hope I wont be dissapointed.
I am starting to get angry with you guys. It's all about the ratings and nothing about the Holiday Spirit. The more people talk about the fact they aren't playing it, the more they like it. Trying to make everyone happy with when they start??? Give me a break. Whatever keeps people talking about their station. "Kepp Listening for the start" No thanks, keep toying with your customers and they will leave, just like me. Can't wait until WOKY and 95.7 start their XMAS music. Adios 99.1, you have toyed with me long enough this year.
Kids asked why Christmas music wasn't on the MYX. How do you explain that? I don't want to even turn on the radio in the car anymore. Can't stand to hear the disappointment in their little voices and see it in their sad little eyes.
WOW this was painful i have been waiting like everybody else it only happens once a year at this time of year. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR; Christmas?
The day after Thanksgiving. Last year, starting on Halloween, was ridiculous! If not the day after Thanksgiving, the Monday before. But no earlier!
I think this group of comments is biased toward the people who want the Christmas music now. When Kidd asked the same question on Facebook, a huge majority wanted it to start after Thanksgiving.
Please start now! My co-workers and I have been waiting and waiting...
ASAP. I think everyone could use a little help getting into the holiday spirit early so by the time Christmas comes they're ready.
Why do people forget about Thanksgiving? It is the most stress free holiday we have. I know that retail has to start early, but Christmas music and Christmas special should not start until after Thanksgiving. That is what it was like growing up and made the Christmas season special. Also Christmas music should run until January 6th (Ephiphany). That is my 2 cents worth.
I do not know what the big deal is. We are already ending the 2nd week in November... START PLAYING XMAS MUSIC ALREADY!!! I do not listen to the radio at all during the rest of the year but come November 1st, 99.1 was all that I listened to... but very soon if it does not start playing I will not listen to you and go to the other radio stations that will play. Madison stations are already playing Christmas music... so lets get going here... otherwise you will loose me and my family as listeners...
You guys are being really stubborn and this is getting pathetic. If I have to wait any longer, you've lost me as a listener. Your "compromise" is only hurting yourselves and your ratings! YOUR fault!
SANTA says BK is a joke
HAHAHA, "this is getting pathetic" haha, a few hours after this joke writes this is gets turned on haha. Thanks guys!!
HO HO HO
SANTA says BK is a joke
it's not xmas, its Christmas Brittany, you're a joke too.
you guys are not stubborn or pathetic, I admit, I was Jonesen for the Christmas music, and now its here! I just hope u play it thru New Years! Not mixing it up, just Christmas music thru new years! You guys did great! Thank You!!
Some people say things like: "PLAY IT NOW! For those who don’t enjoy it, turn the channel. For those of us who do, what choice do we have? BRING ON THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!" OR "The answer is obvious…..The people that do NOT want to hear Christmas music have dozens of other radio stations to listen to."
Do these commenters realize that this is a business? They don't want their normal "customers" to change the channel. And that's what many of them do. Most of the regular listeners choose to listen to this channel because it's a station that prides itself on the VARIETY of different songs/music. By focusing ONLY on Christmas music, it essentially eliminates the "variety" aspect that people are looking for.
It's not a matter of being "Scrooge" like. There are plenty of people who like Christmas music, but don't like to listen to it for months. Do I like to eat steak for dinner? Yes. Would I get sick of eating steak for dinner if I had to eat it every day for over two months? Definitely!
Obviously if the Christmas music helps the ratings, they will/should keep doing it. But I am curious what the ratings are AFTER the Christmas season. Many of the folks commenting here seem to ONLY listen during the Christmas music marathon and then seem to disappear once the station moves back to "normal" music. Again, this is not something a logical radio station would like.
Play it all year long. I love the santas and ho ho ho. I love the crowded stores and the jingle bells. Christmas should be a year long holiday. We can all just buy stuff all year round and give cheap made in China junk to each other and keep the made in China tree up all year! More more more. Ho Ho Ho, reminds me of fun and being a little one. Oh I want it to be all year long. Please lets never stop. It is so much fun. I want to buy more stuff and get more stuff and feed myself and drink and get fat and stupid and lazy. Christmas is so mind numbing. I love it!!!
I listen to the morning show daily, and am often highlighted on the show. WMYX has the only morning show I can tolerate, and I have been so thankful that up until, WMYX hasn't been playing Christmas music. Christmas is a great time of year, but Christmas music is not something I can listen to all day long at work. Remember, the Mix is an "Adult Alternative / Top 40" station. The fact that they play Christmas music at all is a strange choice, so instead of all of you complaining, go out and get some Christmas CD's or load up an iPod with Christmas music. To the person who said, "I do not listen to the radio at all during the rest of the year but come November 1st, 99.1 was all that I listened to…," why should a radio station cater just to you? What about the people who actually listen to the station for the other 10+ months of the year? Should't the Mix cater to it's regular listeners rather than a select few?
Thanks, its about time!
Listen only 24/7 - not bad at all
Thanks for finally starting Christmas music! We've been waiting for a few weeks now wondering when it's starting.
RE: Santa Says BK is a Joke:
You know what, your a joke. Santa loves Christmas you hater. I'm glad they switched over for people like Brittany and me. Scrooges should not be catered to in this time of giving. You are getting coal! Thanks MIX for listening to the people who matter MOST! :)
SANTA says BK is a joke
Haha, I'm a "hater" because I thought you saying they weren't playing it was pathetic and that you wouldn't listen to them anymore BOOHOOO :( tear tear.....one listener? I love the Christmas music too, but whenever they put it on is when they decide to and I'm glad it is now too. I'm no Scrooge, I'm frickin' Santa, the Christmas lover of all Christmas lovers, Kris Kringle, Saint Nick, the big guy from the North Pole, whatever you want to call me. I shouldn't have called you a joke, just your impression that them not putting it on early for you was pathetic. So BK is not a joke, his statement was!!!
Ho Ho Ho
(and PS - just for saying Santa was getting coal, you get a golden turd for Christmas.)
SANTA says BK is a joke
MC IS A JOKE!!!! Now that's a Scrooge!! He gets TWO golden turds.
I enjoy listenting to Christmas music as much as everyone else. But this early, I think the day after thanksgiving is best. Yes it does help get me in the spirit of the holidays. Listening to christmas music makes me want to bake. OH Yea when will you start Jingle Bingo???
Lets play Jingle Bingo

Ellen vs. Matt Escalates
We're at war, people.
Well, it's an early morning versus daytime war, between Matt Lauer and Ellen DeGeneres.
The most recent salvo is Matt's.
This comes after Ellen started jazzing up Matt's mornings with some racy Photoshopped clips.
Matt retaliated by filling Ellen's car with 20,000 ping pong balls.
Ellen sent her viewers to Rockefeller Plaza to test for Matt's tickle points.
And now, Matt paid to have billboards erected around Los Angeles, showing Ellen as a plumber, butt-crack and all.
Funny stuff. Even Ellen thinks so.
No telling what will be next though...
Look what I saw on my way to work today. Good one, @MLauer. #MattsRevenge pic.twitter.com/8QCUw5wqJM

Referee Trip & Fall Makes Highlight Reel
It's always funny to see someone take a fall - as long as the only thing hurt is a guy's ego, right?
The other night, NBA referee Joey Crawford took a center-court face-plant during the Toronto Raptors home game against the Charlotte Hornets.
It's tough to tell what he did - probably tripped over his own feet - but he did make a nice headfirst slide.
What better way to watch than with a continuous Vine, right?
Scary Road to the CMAs
Lady Antebellum's singer Hillary Scott was on her tour bus, heading to Dallas for a week of shows culminating in the Country Music Awards this Sunday night.
On Interstate 30 in Garland, a tire blew out and caused a fire.
Everyone got out safely, but Hillary lost many of her personal belongings.
Scary moments indeed. Glad to hear everyone's okay though.
50 Shades of... Wait! What Did You Do to Your Hair?
Dakota Johnson is between films right now.
She completed 50 Shades of Grey and was just about everywhere on the promotional tour.
And the word in the industry is that the sequel will start shooting fairly soon.
So what's up with the new haircut?
What has become her trademark Anastasia Steele long brown hair is now a bob.
Boom. Let's hope she had permission.
Check out the report from MM1 News. The read by the robotic and accented voice makes it almost hilarious.
The Force Continues to Awake...
Another official trailer is out for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, coming to theaters in December.
In this one, Luke narrates over a variety of images - "The force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power too."
No one's saying who that you is - but I guess that's why they call this a teaser.
It's great to see Han and Chewbacca ever so briefly at the end.
I'm ready. How about you?
What's Going On at ESPN?
Seems like the folks who work at ESPN need to learn to keep their thoughts to themselves.
You'll remember Keith Olberman got in some trouble not too long ago for tweets he made about Penn State and a fundraising effort there.
Now ESPN reporter Britt McHenry got herself suspended for launching a tirade against a tow company's employee.
It's pretty nasty - if you want to watch it, you'll have to go to this link - but don't do it at work.
Britt apologized, but too little too late. She'll be off the air for a week.
Others are calling for her to be let go entirely. What do you think?
In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and (cont) http://t.co/Wx37XF2QtM

The Newest Avenger
Ellen DeGeneres breaks another Hollywood secret.
This time, it's all about the newest Avenger - the Honker.
Okay, it's Ellen, inserting herself into the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron as a joke-telling horn-honking superhero standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk and the rest of the gang.
This could make the movie even more interesting, don't you think?
Hard Enough to Play Real Drums...
It takes years to learn to play the drums. Even longer if you want to play them well.
Imagine how much more difficult it must be to play the drums well if you're a marionette.
Well, if you're the puppeteer manipulating the marionette, and the marionette is playing a drum set made of tin cans.
And the marionette has to keep up with Rush's classic "Tom Sawyer."
Impossible, you say? Think again and witness... It's pretty cool what's happening in this video.
Ah, Yes, the Buckingham Banana Peel!
The royal guards stationed outside Buckingham Palace in London are famous for their crisp movements and fierce focus.
Tourists try all the time to get them to laugh - even just to crack a smile - to no avail.
Which makes what happened on Tuesday even funnier.
During a routine changing of the guard, one soldier somehow managed to slip and fall while shifting to one side.
He got up quickly, but he was smiling a bit.
He stopped very quickly, but it was caught on someone's cell phone - of course - and now it's gone viral.
Have a look...
Carpool Karaoke, the Latest Craze
James Corden is starting off strong in his new gig on CBS's Late Late Show.
Strong guests, strong performances, and strong skits.
Like this one, where he's carpooling with Jennifer Hudson.
When songs come on the radio, they have no choice but to sing along, now do they?
And when they pull in to a drive-through, why not let Jennifer Hudson sing the order for you?
All that and more. Funny stuff.
Josh & Kelly Team Up for Phantom Duet
If you're a fan of musical theater, you're of course familiar with Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera and one of its more beautiful tunes, "All I Ask of You."
It's a haunting tune, really, and somewhat operatic.
Enter Josh Groban and his new album, "Stages" - his salute to musical theater.
He tackles the role of Raoul, opposite Kelly Clarkson's Christine.
This is not your typical Phantom, and there's not a thing wrong with that.
Give a listen.
The Epitome of TMI
Okay, maybe E! is starting to reach on its reality shows.
Their show, Botched, features plastic surgery nightmares.
And last night's season premiere focused on Tiffany Pollard, the self-professed queen of reality TV.
The star of VH1's Flavor of Love decided to get breast augmentation surgery when she hit the big time - no pun intended - inspired by Dolly Parton.
She's none too happy about the outcome, and of course, being the queen of reality TV, she doesn't mind sharing her story.
I'm sort of wishing she hadn't...
Hail to You, Robin Williams
Jamie Costa is a comic/ actor from South Carolina.
He's making a name for himself with celebrity impressions.
And this week, he released a reel of impressions of Robin Williams in a variety of roles.
Twenty of them, to be precise - from Mork to Teddy Roosevelt and many others in between.
He calls it his "tribute to the man whose spark ignited my passion."
Pretty good work, if I do get to pass judgment...
Oh No Pokemon Didn't...
File this one under Seriously?
A number of websites are reporting that the Creflo Dollar Ministries - that's a guy's name, by the way - has conducted a study that determined that Pokemon, the cartoon of the 80s and 90s, pointed children who were teenagers in that era toward homosexuality.
The quote most often seen: teens ”had their sexuality warped by Ash and his fruity friends.”
How about that?
And here I thought it was Tinky Winky the Purple Teletubby who was responsible for turning kids gay...
Milk Milk Lemonade
Amy Schumer's the hottest thing in comedy these days.
Her concerts sell-out. She was a hit hosting the MTV Movie Awards over the weekend.
She wrote and starred in Trainwreck.
And her Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer, starts a new season.
They're calling her the new Queen of Shocking TV Comedy.
And here's the promo for her show - "Milk Milk Lemonade" - sort of a very grown-up version of "All About That Bass."
Think twice before opening this one up at work...

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
Jake Caputo's a man with an idea.
He tweeted out a message to the world asking people what they'd pay for a standalone HBO streaming service.
He even set up a website in 2012 called takemymoneyhbo.com.
And it looks like HBO was listening. And now they're ready to talk seriously with Jake - and take his money.
Who better to collect, than Paulie Walnuts and Big Pussy from The Sopranos, am I right?
Check out this promo!
Game of the Holy Grail
Game of Thrones is back, and all is well with the world.
Well, unless you live in Westeros. Or on The Wall.
But it's Game of Thrones.
In honor of that, here's a little Throwback Thursday fun.
What if Monty Python & The Holy Grail were a real fantasy film, instead of a comedy fantasy film produced by the coolest comedy troupe of all time?
Would it look something like this? Why yes, I think it would...
Cookie Meets Cookie
When Taraji P. Henson hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, some writer had a stroke of genius.
Insert her character from Empire - Cookie Lyon - into a show that already had a character named Cookie - Sesame Street.
The result is pretty brilliant, with a new Cookie Monster shaking thinkgs up on the street we all know and love.
Them's Fightin' Words
It didn't take long for Hillary Clinton's potential Republican opponents to come out swinging after her Sunday announcement that she'll be running for President on the Democratic side.
Rand Paul published a slickly-done apocalyptic message, warning about what would happen if Hillary weren't defeated.
Very Orwellian, or Hunger Games, or something like that.
Check out the picture they use of Hillary at about the 10-second mark.
Does she remind you a bit of Auntie Em from The Wizard of Oz?
How Yucky Was It?
Coachella's known for having some weird things happen.
Could be the weirdest thing happened this weekend, when Madonna shared the stage - and more - with Drake.
In the middle of a song, Madonna grabbed the seated Drake's head, tilted it back and locked lips big time.
We're not talking a peck here, or a friendly little kiss.
No, it was more like mouth-to-mouth.
And when it was done, Drake doesn't look any too happy.
Check out the video... and be sure to listen for Drake's heavily-bleeped response...
The Kardashian Invasion Continues
Kim and Khloe Kardashian continued their whirlwind tour of Mother Armenia - that's what they're calling it.
They met with the Prime Minister of Armenia, because, as you know, they are quite important Armenian American dignitaries.
At some point, Kim spotted an elderly woman in the crowd. According to the story, the woman had been waiting for 12 hours to meet the Kardashians, leaning on her cane the whole while.
No word from the woman if she thought Kim's hug was worth the wait.
It was an honor to meet the Prime Minister of Armenia, Hovik Abrahamyan who expressed how proud they are that we are proud Armenians and we have not forgotten our roots! #NeverForget

Something Bugging You?
Seems like Hollywood is cranking out every Marvel comic character in the library.
Next up: Ant Man, starring Paul Rudd.
Paul plays a thief turned hero who's able to shrink in size and increase in strength and speed.
And of course, he has to save the world.
Otherwise, what's the point?
And having Michael Douglas on board as the scientist who makes Ant Man possible - that's just a bonus.
Pink Puts the Haters in Their Place
People think it's okay to take shots at anyone for anything.
On Saturday night, Pink went to a benefit to celebrate a friend's recognition "for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer."
But all people could tweet about was Pink and her black dress and how she looked fat.
Pink took it in stride and issued the most polite "shut up" in history.
"While I admit that that dress didn't photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don't worry about me. I'm not worried about me. And I'm not worried about you either:)… I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern. Love, cheesecake."
And then a little frosting on the cake...

"I've Been Trying to Teach Him to Blend In"
I've got to admit it. When I heard they were making a new Terminator movie that included Arnold Schwarzenegger, I wasn't expecting much.
I mean, the guy's 67, and the original Terminator came out over 30 years ago.
But watching this trailer for Terminator: Genisys, I might have to change my mind.
Some mind-boggling time-travel sci fi here, but the moment when now-Schwarzenegger goes toe-to-toe with then-Schwarzenegger could be worth the price of admission.
Who's with me?
Watching It Live Takes the Glamor Away
Every time you see a glamorous photo, don't you think how cool it must be to be a celebrity on the red carpet of some posh event?
Look at the photo of Jennifer Lopez that's part of this blog.
It was taken on the runway of last night's MTV Movie Awards. Breezy, serious, all-business but stylish too.
Now watch the footage of her as that shot and a whole bunch of others are snapped.
Poor woman must need a break by the end of it all. And she still has a whole awards show to sit through...
