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....!

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.
11/05/2009 4:29AM
Gina
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.
11/05/2009 5:05AM
ben bork
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!
11/05/2009 5:09AM
Sarah
Christmas music makes me happy. You should start playing it now!
11/05/2009 5:35AM
Jess
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...
11/05/2009 5:49AM
Heather
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...
11/05/2009 6:10AM
Tina
Why haven't you started yet?? We were so excited on Nov. 1st and turned on your station first thing and were extremely disappointed... :-(
11/05/2009 6:16AM
Pam
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!
11/05/2009 6:27AM
Terri
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.
11/05/2009 6:30AM

the sooner the better!!
11/05/2009 6:34AM
Sara
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 :)
11/05/2009 6:34AM
Christine
NOW!!! I was so disappointed when I tuned in on Nov 1st and no Christmas music :( We're ready!!!
11/05/2009 7:01AM
Marla
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.
11/05/2009 7:07AM
Sara
ASAP (: i love the christmas mix
11/05/2009 7:09AM
Mitch
Start it as soon as possible. Its starting to get real cold, why not have some christmas music to go with it
11/05/2009 7:23AM
Terri
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!
11/05/2009 7:39AM
AMB
Start the Christmas music!!! If you guys aren't going to play Cristmas music, do you know when WRIT will be?
11/05/2009 7:39AM
Tim
Now please...I've been waiting since the first of the month!
11/05/2009 7:39AM
Aliisa
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!!
11/05/2009 7:41AM
Lisa
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?
11/05/2009 7:42AM
Andy
NOW!!!!
11/05/2009 7:44AM
Andy
Do you guys know when wRIT will start their xmas music?
11/05/2009 8:17AM
nicole
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.
11/05/2009 8:36AM
Katie
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.
11/05/2009 8:49AM
Linda
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.
11/05/2009 8:57AM
Becky
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!
11/05/2009 8:59AM
Trevor
Please play it now!!!
11/05/2009 9:10AM
Drew
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!!!
11/05/2009 9:24AM
Dave
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!
11/05/2009 9:39AM
Laurie
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.....
11/05/2009 9:46AM
Liz
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.
11/05/2009 9:48AM
kathy
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.
11/05/2009 10:12AM
Maggie
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!
11/05/2009 10:17AM
Nate
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...
11/05/2009 10:19AM
Nate
P.S. 94.9 in Madison is currently playing all Christmas music.
11/05/2009 10:43AM
Katie
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!
11/05/2009 12:03PM
christine
please play those merry tunes soon! i was bummed when they weren't there november 1st. please put the christmas music on asap!
11/05/2009 12:30PM
Stacy
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!
11/05/2009 12:35PM
Jim
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 :-)
11/05/2009 12:56PM
R
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!
11/05/2009 1:01PM
Heidi
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!!
11/05/2009 1:16PM
Chris
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
11/05/2009 1:17PM
Ingrid
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?
11/05/2009 2:28PM
jennifer
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?!!!!!!!!
11/05/2009 2:29PM
Jeff
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.
11/05/2009 3:05PM

NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW WE ALL LOVE CHRISTMAS MUSIC AND I WANT IT NOW!
11/05/2009 3:40PM

NOW!
11/05/2009 4:55PM
Jamie
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!
11/05/2009 5:52PM
kathy
No. Please don't start Christmas music yet. It is just too much. After Thanksgiving is early enough.
11/05/2009 6:22PM
Connie
Please start NOW!
11/05/2009 6:37PM
Amanda
Please play Christmas music asap! :)
11/05/2009 6:37PM
Morgan
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!
11/05/2009 9:07PM
Nancy
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.
11/05/2009 9:41PM
Rod
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.
11/05/2009 9:47PM
Rod
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.
11/06/2009 5:04AM
John
Now indeed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
11/06/2009 5:25AM
Kylie
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.
11/06/2009 5:54AM
Judy
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!
11/06/2009 6:17AM
Drew
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!!??? "WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS......RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE....... WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS NOW!"
11/06/2009 6:25AM
julie
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!
11/06/2009 6:35AM
Jen D
still no Christmas music? I am very disappointed!
11/06/2009 6:47AM
Laurie
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!!!!
11/06/2009 6:49AM
Rod
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.
11/06/2009 7:16AM
AMB
Just checking in for my office....Back to WRIT and/or 94.5 til tomorrow....See ya!!
11/06/2009 7:21AM
Jessica
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.
11/06/2009 7:32AM
Trevor
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.
11/06/2009 7:37AM

NOW!!!! I was looking for it last weekend and was very disappointed to not hear it. Please. Right away!
11/06/2009 8:14AM
Stacy
Was looking for the Christmas last weekend! I'm so ready to hear the Christmas music!!!
11/06/2009 10:16AM

bring on the Christmas music
11/06/2009 10:56AM
Tina
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!!!
11/06/2009 11:50AM
Sas
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.
11/06/2009 11:58AM
Cindy
The best things in life are worth waiting for, so lets wait until the Christmas Season is truly upon us.
11/06/2009 12:15PM

Really ready for it now! Kohls has there own system playing it now.... and so should YOU!
11/06/2009 12:38PM
Dan
Have one or two an hour starting now and then Thanksgiving evening go total Christmas music!
11/06/2009 1:08PM

Please start it on Mon.Nov.9th,2009 Thanks
11/06/2009 2:42PM
ben bork
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!
11/06/2009 2:51PM
Jean
For heaven's sake, quit talking about it and start playing it! I have been waiting...and waiting...and waiting!
11/06/2009 3:35PM
Rhonda
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.
11/06/2009 3:47PM
Chris
I think Christmas music should be playing by the downtown Christmas parade. If you're going to wait at least start it then
11/06/2009 4:31PM

Any time NOW yesterday would have been better!!!!!!!
11/07/2009 3:22AM
carrie
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!
11/07/2009 6:21AM
Sarah
Where is the Christmas music? I have been waiting patiently. Please play it NOW!
11/07/2009 6:45AM
Larry
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
11/07/2009 9:44AM
Andy
There are people who need the Christmas music to start already! All the Scrooges can bah-hum-bug their way to another radio station!
11/07/2009 11:35AM
Jennifer
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.
11/07/2009 12:52PM
Joey
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.
11/07/2009 1:42PM
scott chartier
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!
11/07/2009 1:53PM
scott chartier
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!
11/07/2009 2:26PM
Alyssa
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!
11/07/2009 3:32PM
Ryan
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!
11/07/2009 9:01PM
Angela
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.
11/07/2009 9:48PM
Marisa
NOW! Didn't it start earlier last year?
11/08/2009 4:14AM
Sarah
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. -Sarah Racine, WI
11/08/2009 7:41AM

Im thinking mid november is a good time to start, so theres a small buildup to Thanksgiving.
11/08/2009 8:08AM
Katie
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.
11/08/2009 9:23AM
Katey
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.
11/08/2009 9:31AM
Sandy
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.
11/08/2009 10:00AM
Bob SANTA
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.
11/08/2009 12:46PM
Brandon
Please play the Christmas music now!!!:)
11/08/2009 1:32PM
Jenny
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!
11/08/2009 5:40PM
Jeanette
Um, hello, I was so sad when I turned on the station to not here xmas music. Start it like 8 days ago already.
11/08/2009 6:37PM
Nicole
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!!!!!
11/08/2009 7:51PM
Dave
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!

Hmmm ABOUT 160 POSTS... About 30 for waiting and 130 for playing xmas NOW!!! What part of this dont you guys understand?
11/09/2009 7:16AM
Jennifer
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!!!
11/09/2009 7:22AM
Jennifer
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!!!
11/09/2009 7:27AM

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 !!!

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!
11/09/2009 7:55AM

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.
11/09/2009 9:44AM
maggie
Start this week. I think you need more VARIETY in your christmas music selections but I want to hear it now!
11/09/2009 9:46AM
maggie
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!

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.
11/09/2009 12:31PM

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

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.

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*

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.
11/10/2009 3:34AM
Amy
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!!!!!!!!!!!!
11/10/2009 5:16AM
Maggie
Keep tuning into the Mix every morning to check, and keep getting disappointed. When's the Christmas music starting??
11/10/2009 6:26AM
Jimbo
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!!!!
11/10/2009 6:28AM
Jimbo
Be nice if someone from the MIX would blog and at least give us some info!!!!!!!!
11/10/2009 8:42AM

STILLLLLL nothing? VERY disappointed in this radio station.........
11/10/2009 8:45AM
John
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.
11/10/2009 8:45AM

Please start the Christmas music soon! Kinda disappointed that it isn't playing yet!

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.....
11/10/2009 10:24AM
Lisa
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!
11/10/2009 10:47AM
Nancy
START IT NOW!!!!!
11/10/2009 11:21AM
chris
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.
11/10/2009 1:19PM
linda
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 :)

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.

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!!!
11/11/2009 8:12AM
Nicole
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!
11/11/2009 10:27AM
Dave
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
11/11/2009 10:44AM

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!!
11/11/2009 1:25PM

What a bummer...no christmas music and its November 11th...It would be nice if you guys would get that started..
11/11/2009 1:28PM

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.
11/11/2009 2:54PM
John
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.
11/12/2009 10:27AM

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.
11/12/2009 5:18PM

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!
11/12/2009 6:06PM
Kari
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.
11/13/2009 4:47AM
Hallie
Please start now! My co-workers and I have been waiting and waiting...
11/13/2009 5:40AM

ASAP. I think everyone could use a little help getting into the holiday spirit early so by the time Christmas comes they're ready.
11/13/2009 5:49AM
Terri
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.
11/13/2009 9:45AM
Brittany
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...
11/13/2009 11:54AM

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!

HAHAHA, "this is getting pathetic" haha, a few hours after this joke writes this is gets turned on haha. Thanks guys!! HO HO HO

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?

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! :)
11/17/2009 3:10PM
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.)
11/17/2009 3:13PM

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???

Goodbye, Dr. Huxtable... Hello, Mr. Hyde
It's one of the saddest falls from grace ever. Bill Cosby, one of the most respected entertainers of the 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond, is now one of the most reviled men on the planet. To date, 46 women have come forward, accusing the comedian of heinous acts. This week, New York magazine pictures 35 of them on the cover - along with an empty chair, for the next victim. A sad story all around.     So far, 46 women have come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault, in some cases, according to a recently unsealed deposition, with the aid of quaaludes—a powerful sedative that can render a person functionally immobile. But these allegations are by no means new, with some stretching back decades—to a time when the culture of rape in America left victims little recourse but to suffer silently, and in shame. Today, the way we think and talk about rape has evolved, creating a safer space for survivors to feel empowered by speaking up and reclaiming their victimhood. And that’s led us here. Of the 46 women who have come forward to accuse Cosby, we spoke to 35 of them — “a sorrowful sisterhood” of women united by their dark experiences, steadfast in their resolve to remain silent no more.

Hut One, Hut Two, Boo Boo BOO!
This is a pretty funny video. One of the coaches of the Ohio State University football team dressed up like one of the mannequins in the hallway at the training facility, and waited for unsuspecting players to pass. Then, he pounced! Most of the players jumped. One guy was pretty nonchalant about it. But the last guy not only jumped, he tumbled over. Very funny prank. Nicely played, Coach!

Shoop for Me, Bobbi Kristina
There's a video makiing the rounds in the wake of Bobbi Kristina Brown's passing on Sunday. It shows Bobbi Kristina on stage with her mom, Whitney Houston, when she was perhaps three or four years old. Whitney was in concert in Washington, DC. The year was 1997. The quality of the video's not great, but the video itself is amazing. It's good to see the two of them in much happier times.

Lime Juice & Sunshine Do NOT Mix
I've never heard about this medical condition before, but after extensive research - okay, I Googled it - it seems like there might be something to it. It's called phytophotodermatitis. Here's the clinical explanation: Phytophotodermatitis (PPD) is a cutaneous phototoxic inflammatory eruption resulting from contact with light-sensitizing botanical substances and long-wave ultraviolet (UV-A 320-380 nm) radiation. The eruption usually begins approximately 24 hours after exposure and peaks at 48-72 hours. The phototoxic result may be intensified by wet skin, sweating, and heat. Got that? According to other sources, it's caused by lime juice being dripped on your skin followed by your body's later exposure to sunshine. So, if you happen to be drinking a margarita at the beach, and you spill it on yourself, the next day, you could wind up with phytophotodermatitis. From all accounts, it looks and acts nasty - sort of like poison ivy, but caused by the unlikeliest of produce. There's a lesson to be learned here, people. From now on, margaritas in sippy cups!     This morning v. this afternoon. Progress! A photo posted by amarysuelife (@amarysuelife) on May 13, 2015 at 1:34pm PDT

Eyes Everywhere!
So a woman is sitting next to her hubby at a baseball game, (allegedly) sexting another man when a pair of young ladies over her shoulder figure out what's going on. It's the Braves versus the Dodgers on the field, but in the stands, it's Upright Citizens versus Lying Hoe. That's the characterization of the Upright Citizens, by the way, not mine. Their names are Brynn and Delana Hinson, and when they saw what was going on, they snapped some pix of the explicitexts. Not only that, they wrote a note to the hubby on the night's player roster that read: "Your wife is cheating on you. Look at the messages under Nancy! [It's] really a man named Mark Allen. There [are] pictures on my phone. [I]f she has deleted the messages... Sorry, just thought you should know!" That was Delana, and she even gave the guy her phone number. They say he called for the pix later on. Uh oh...   @LUV2BCH_ for the people saying this is old and we didn't do it .. That's me bihhhhh what pic.twitter.com/pViqMUSv0S — Delana W Hinson (@lanabaybee8) July 23, 2015

If You Plan to Fly - Ever! - Do Not Watch This Video
I'm already a terrible flyer. When I do fly, I have to buy another ticket for my flying companion, Xanax. But even he couldn't have helped with this landing. A KLM pilot brought an airliner in for a wobbly landing at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport on Saturday, and the video has gone viral. Getting pushed from side to side by strong winds, it looks at one point that the plane might actually tip over. The touchdown was uneventful, but you couldn't pay me enough to be on the KLM clean-up crew for that particular flight...

RIP, Bobbi Kristina
Bobbi Kristina Brown's family reported that she passed away last night at the age of 22. The daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found unconscious and unresponsive in her bathtub six months ago. She never regained consciousness. The Houston family issued a statement: "Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months." Sad news of a life cut tragically short.

Don't Cry - I Dare You
Sometimes, you just have to give in and let yourself cry. The school chorus at PS22 on Staten Island sang a song in honor of a teacher battling breast cancer recently, and the video's gone viral. It's Martina McBride's "I'm Gonna Love You Through It." Try not to cry. You'll fail. I guarantee it. Such a touching and warm tribute.

This may be the best - and by best, I mean funniest - headline I've read in a while. It's an article from US Weekly. Headline: "Snoop Dogg Arrested in Sweden on Suspicion of Drugs" Suspicion? That's it? Suspicion? And the funniest part of the story - he apparently passed the pee-in-the-cup test. Yeah, me too. I'm shocked. Check out the story in US Weekly. There's an Instagram video there that Snoop posted about the incident. He's not happy, so it's Not Safe For Work!

Competing with the Kardashians?
Okay, we get it. Kylie and Kendall Jenner aren't really Kardashians, but they're part of the clan. They're usually facing stiff competition from their older half-siblings - Kim, Kourtney and Khloe. But now, competition from outside the family. Jessica Simpson posted a picture to Instagram, showing her wearing a bathing suit also worn on Instagram by Kylie and Kendall. Jessica's about twice as old as the kids, but she seems to be wearing it just as well. What do you think?     Yacht Life #FBF @jacquieaiche @agentprovocateurofficial 📷 @kristingram A photo posted by Jessica Simpson (@jessicasimpson) on Jul 24, 2015 at 3:59pm PDT     🐬🐳💦💙💎 A photo posted by King Kylie (@kyliejenner) on Jul 19, 2015 at 3:49pm PDT   me and my lil monkey inside my @Allure_Magazine cover shoot. shot by @mariotestino A photo posted by Kendall Jenner (@kendalljenner) on Feb 12, 2015 at 8:31am PST

Epic A-Rod Wipeout
Say what you will about him, Alex Rodriguez is still good for a chuckle now and again. Check out this sequence of pix as A-Rod tumbles over home plate - scoring in the process - in a recent game between the New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles. The folks at NESN break it down...

Let It Go in the Shower
You learn something new every day. Today, I learned two new things. (1) Gwyneth Paltrow runs a website called goop.com. It was "launched" from her kitchen in 2008. According to the website, "goop has become a place for GP to introduce some of the incredible experts who have mentored her throughout her life to a wider audience, and a place where readers can find suggestions about where to shop, eat, and stay from a trusted friend—not from an anonymous, crowd-sourced recommendation engine." (2) Gwyneth and goop recommend that women pee in the shower for their inner health. This from the woman who consciously uncoupled late last year. Directly from the site, so you know I'm not making it up: "Try peeing in the shower squatting down. When you squat to pee as opposed to sitting up straight on the toilet, you automatically engage your pelvic floor and it naturally stretches and tones. Because your urethra is pointed straight down in this position all you have to do is relax for urine to flow out easily—as opposed to sitting up straight and having to strain to empty your bladder." So what do you think, ladies? Can you do it? Will you do it? Here's a link to the whole article, in case you're interested...

They're Called "Wild" Animals for a Reason
I guess some people see warning signs and say, "Well, yeah, but that doesn't mean me." Here's a story that could have ended up with a much more horrible ending. A woman and her daughter were visiting Yellowstone National Park with her family when they spotted a bison. So she and her daughter decided to take a selfie with the bison behind them. Maybe the bison didn't like having his picture taken? So he came up behind the pair and tossed mom into the air. Luckily, she wasn't hurt too badly, but she did have to get treatment at a hospital. So please, take this is a warning. And if you're thinking, "Well, yeah, but that doesn't mean me," we'll probably be writing about you someday soon.   ABC US News | World News

Feeling Good About Saving a Killer
Scientists came to the rescue in a MacGyver sort of way last week to save a nine-year-old killer whale found stranded on some rocks on the coast of British Columbia. They think the orca got caught at low tide chasing a seal, and was unable to get back into the water. According to The Daily Mail: "The group designed what it called a 'MacGyver type water pump' to keep the animal from drowning, and ultimately were able to keep the nine-year-old mammal alive until high tide freed her that evening." Pretty amazing stuff. Here's the video of the whale swimming free...

Now Kim K's Fixing the Internet?
First, Kim Kardashian tried to break the internet. It didn't really happen. So now, she's trying to fix the internet. Well, the Twitter part of it anyway. She tweeted to the co-keeper of the Twittersphere, Jack Dorsey, the other day. I just emailed Twitter to see if they can add an edit feature so that when u misspell something u don't have to delete & repost Let's see... — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) July 25, 2015 And he tweeted her back, saying it was a great idea. "We're always looking at ways to make things faster and easier," he wrote. So she tweeted words of hope. Well, sort of... Thank you @Jack #FounderOfTwitterUnderstands !!! https://t.co/SzCM03xAH2 — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) July 25, 2015 But not everyone's happy about it. You've got to read Jack's Twitter feed. It's going a little nutty about the whole thing.

Come Back, Rob Lowe, Come Back!
Rob Lowe's out as the spokesperson for DirecTV. You remember the ads where the regular Rob Lowe had DirecTV and a variety of "other" split-screened Rob Lowes had cable. Those ads were so cheesy, they were starting to grow on me. So anyway, he's out. Gone. See ya later, Gator. And he's been replaced by... Drum roll, please. New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning. Let that sink in. And then watch his DirecTV commercial debut. Perhaps after that, you'll help organize the Bring Back Rob Lowe committee in your town?

"When Civilization Ends... It Ends Fast"
To date, the trailers for Fear the Walking Dead, the prequel to AMC's hit show, The Walking Dead, have been less than intriguing. Looks like the trailer the producers released at Comic-Con last week has got a little more meat to it. Okay, a lot more meat, and some of it human. I held off watching it until now, fully expecting more disappointment. My bad. Now I get it. To some degree, it's even more horrifying than The Walking Dead, since it tells the story of how the zombies came to be to begin with. I actually think I might have to tune in to the premiere now. What do you think?

Modern Technology Meets the Future
One of the most advanced personal cameras available to man today is the GoPro. People can strap it on anywhere and anything and capture some pretty interesting video points-of-view. So what would it be like if a Jedi warrior - someone like Obi Wan Kenobi - strapped one on and captured a day-in-the-life? Wonder no more, my friends. That moment has happened. Today has met the future, and it's pretty cool.

No Talking or Texting in the Theater
Seriously, is anything more annoying than someone talking or texting in the middle of a movie or a play. Last week, Broadway star Patti Lupone made news when she walked off stage and took away the phone of someone who was texting during a performance. Now, it's Kevin Bacon's turn, and he's upping the ante. Because in Kevin Bacon's world, talking and texting in a theater is a crime. And you could do time. Check out this PSA for Alamo Cinemas...

Pixels Panned Pre-Opening
Adam Sandler's new movie, Pixels, gets wide release tonight. The premise: video games from the 80s were launched into space to say hello to alien species. After 30 years, they're back to terrorize Earth. The only hope to save the planet: the gamers who conquered the video games 30 years ago. Here's the trailer...   As usual, film critics got to see the movie before the general public. The folks at BuzzFeed assembled the 11 best reviews - and by "best," I mean reviews that skewered the film and Adam Sandler. My favorite, from Josh Bell at Las Vegas Weekly: "Calling Pixels one of Sandler's better movies is like calling a particular strain of Ebola somewhat less horrifically painful; either way, it's not pleasant."

What Is This, A Fruit Salad Tree?
Here comes a wacky science story, everybody, from the Land of Botany. A professor at Syracuse University has created - with the help of a process called "chip grafting" - a tree capable of growing 40 different types of fruit. They're all stone fruits - in other words, fruits with pits - and the professor considers the trees works of art. Check out the video from National Geographic.

Now Standing In For a Plague of Locusts...
I thought it was Shark Week, but it's looking more like Bug Week. Yesterday, we talked about a 50-mile long swarm of grasshoppers and beetles that was showing up on weather radar. Today, we talk about a swarm of mayflies that made a knee-high insectile pile that closed down a bridge that connects Illinois and Iowa. Closed down a bridge. They had to get a public works crew on-scene with a snowplow to push the buggers off the bridge - and then they had to sand it down because they'd left a slippery mess. This is real, people. Check out the news story. And stock up on your Raid and Off products. The next swarm could be hitting your town!

Grab Some Raid, Y'all!
The Weird Science story of the day is right here. The National Weather Service has declared an official Bug Alert for Knox County, Texas. There's a swarm of grasshoppers and beetles actually showing up on radar. Check this out. The swarm goes from the ground to about 2500 feet in the air, and covers 50 miles. That's a heck of a lot of bugs right there. I'm thinking, if you live in Knox County, Texas, maybe you stay inside for a bit. With the windows closed...   Check it out! Rangers at Copper Breaks State Park confirmed the radar is picking up grasshoppers & beetles! #texomawx pic.twitter.com/lBWjvai7Zw — NWS Norman (@NWSNorman) July 22, 2015

It's especially funny considering all the hype surrounding Batman Versus Superman and the new Star Wars movie.

An Executive Order We Can Get Behind!
President Barack Obama made his seventh - and final - appearance on The Daily Show this week. He spent about 20 minutes with Jon Stewart, and they talked about fun stuff and serious stuff as well. But right off the  bat, the President made an announcement that I think we, as a country, can stand behind, 100%. An executive order that Jon Stewart cannot leave The Daily Show. Call your representatives and senators, people!
