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

Chris Pratt Crushed by a Noahsaurus
Chris Pratt visited the Ellen show this week and agreed to play a game of "Dino Right, Dino Wrong" against Ellen's little buddy, Noah Ritter.
It was a trivia game about dinosaurs, and given that Chris just wrapped up Jurassic World, you'd expect him to have the edge.
This kid Noah is good. Check out the competition.
How Do You Write "Uh Oh" in Arabic?
On Tuesday, Lindsay Lohan posted an inspirational message to Instagram.
On the bottom line, it read "You're beautiful." Above it were some Arabic characters, which everyone took to mean the same thing as the English phrase.
Not so much, according to experts. Lindsay had actually written, "You're an ass" in Arabic.
Yesterday, she posted this picture of a pocketbook, and referenced the now-deleted message, saying it was an inside joke with a friend.
"So, was already known what it was."
I'm not buying it. How about you?
FYI- The funny thing is-the Arabic photo I posted was an inside joke w/friend to test my Arabic w/out Google translation. So, was already known what it was. Other than this- I love @maisonvalentino

Making FLOTUS's Day
How's this for a nice way for Michelle Obama to start her day?
The First Lady was entertaining some children of White House Staffers as part of Bring Your Daughters & Sons to Work Day.
One young lady asked Mrs. O who old she was, and when she answered, "51," the girl made a face.
Turns out she thought Mrs. O was "too young" to be 51.
Guess who got a big hug?
Have Blacks Abandoned Baseball?
Chris Rock did a guest spot on HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, part of the show's 20th anniversary celebration.
His topic: why blacks have abandoned baseball.
He talks about growing up a baseball fan, when 20% of the players in Major League Baseball were black. Now, that number has dwindled, according to Chris, to about 8%.
But it's not about being black, it's about being a baseball fan.

Don't Push Iron Man!
Robert Downey Jr. was sitting down for a series of interviews about Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Things are okay for the first four minutes, and then they start to go off the track when the reporter starts asking about RDJ's personal life.
You can tell he's very uncomfortable talking about his time in prison and struggling with addiction - "Are we promoting a movie?" RDJ asked.
The reporter refused to pick up on that cue and kept dwelling on the personal aspects.
Finally, RDJ got upset enough to walk out. And watch the reporter. He doesn't get why...
It's Dropping Trou Coming Around the Post...
Things got a little cheeky in the first rate at the Canterbury race track in Sydney, Australia yesterday when jockey Blake Shinn's trouser elastic snapped as he rode Miss Royale toward the finish line.
Even with his backside on full display, he managed to finish second, right in front of a horse named Modesty.
This stuff you can't make up.
And while it was embarrassing, it didn't affect him much. He won the last race of the day on a horse named Eisenhower.
This time, his pants stayed fully on.

Sometimes the easiest way to add a fresh look to your garden is to use your favorite plants in a new way.
The popular easy care wave petunia provides big impact with minimal care. This year use these or other trailing petunias in a new way.
Combine wave petunias with another vigorous growing vine like lamium, licorice plant or black eyed Susan vine.
Create a living candelabra with a hanging basket of petunias. Insert several 12 inch candles into your hanging basket of trailing petunias. Just be sure to replace the candles before they burn down to the flowers.
Plant trailing petunias in the ground and grow as an annual groundcover. These large petunias will quickly fill the bed and add color throughout the season.
Or go vertical. Train these vigorous growers up a wire frame to create a petunia tree or along a fence for a colorful screen.
A bit more information: Create a tower of petunia flowers with a bit of 20 gauge fencing, landscape fabric, and a flat of trailing petunias, lantana, verbena or other trailing plant. For directions, click here.

Chewing with Chewie
For some reason, people are taking the #TwizzlerChallenge to help raise autism awareness.
I don't see the correlation, but if it helps, who am I to question it.
You take a Twizzler in your mouth, and place the other end of the Twizzler in your partner's mouth, and chew on it like the two dogs chewing on a strand of spaghetti in Lady & the Tramp.
Jimmy Kimmel kicked off Autism Awareness Month at the beginning of April by taking the challenge with Rihanna.
And then he challenged Star Wars: A Force Awakens director JJ Abrams to take the challenge - with the biggest hairiest hero of them all, Chewbacca.
The other night, the pair stepped up. Check out the video - and who they passed the challenge to...
Kanye Don't Play That
The thought that both Kanye West and Kim Kardashian made the list of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2015 is hard to swallow.
Maybe it's because we're only four months in to 2015, and other more influential people won't be stepping up their game until the summer or fall.
The other night, Time held its 100 Gala in New York, and on the red carpet, comedian Amy Schumer - in my eyes, a deserving recipient of the recognition - threw herself to the ground in front of Kimye.
Payback, in some respect, for Kanye's pranks at the Grammys with Taylor Swift a few years ago and Beck a few months ago.
And guess what? Kanye didn't like it one bit. He and Kim both frowned at Amy and moved along, not even bothering to help her up.
Dancing with the Crutches
Derek Hough, one of the professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars, got hurt on Monday night, and probably won't be on DWTS for a while.
Details are vague, but the injury involved stairs and a light according to his Instagram post.
He broke a toe in one foot, and badly sprained the ankle on the opposite leg.
He says he'll do what he can to recuperate quickly, but for now, he'll be off his feet.
Performing 10 shows a week at Radio City while rehearsing with Nastia for DWTS, I've never felt more healthy,strong and fit. But then a fluke accident happened that involved a light and some stairs. Can't believe it, wish I had a cooler story to tell. All that dancing , flipping , jumping and the thing that stops me in my tracks is something as simple as a light and some stairs . I'm doing everything I possibly can to have a quick recovery and I'm determined to come back stronger than ever. I appreciate all the love and support, you guys are the best. And thank you to Mark, BC Jean and Corky Ballas for staying with me at the hospital until 2am. Love you . This is new territory for me , I'm usually able to work through injury but this one has literally floored me. But like I said before I'm determined to come back all guns blazing ... soon!!! #setbackisasetupforacomeback

Full House Coming Back
John Stamos made it official this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Netflix has sealed the deal on the return of Full House to television.
So far, according to John, all the original players have signed on - except for the Olsen Twins. But they said in an interview yesterday they'd just heard about it, which means they of course don't have Facebook.
There will be 13 episodes in the original run - a one-hour reunion show, spinning off into Fuller House.
This one will focus on DJ, a recently-widowed mother of three with a fourth on the way.
Sounds fall-down funny already, doesn't it?
But, if you recall the original, Danny Tanner's wife passed away young, leaving Danny and his brother-in-law and wacky comic friend to raise three daughters.
So who knows?
It seems like the world is excited about it, so why not us, right?
Popeye Bye Bye
A shift supervisor at a Popeye's in Texas claims she was fired for refusing to pay back money robbed from the store at gunpoint while she was in charge.
Popeye's says that's not 100% true - she was fired for having too much money in the cash register.
That would be $400 - according to the woman, about an hour's worth of chicken and biscuits on that particular evening.
So let that be a lesson to you: even if you've got 14 customers in line, you tell them all they have to wait, because you've got too darned much money in the register.
Y'all come back now, y'hear?
I'm surprised they didn't get mad at her for letting the guy jump on the counter.
New Instagram Standards?
Over the weekend, a woman in Scotland posted pictures of herself to Instagram, showing what her belly looked like after delivering twins.
Her account was deactivated by Instagram within two minutes, according to most sources, for violating Instagram's decency rules.
She's wearing a fairly modest bra and sweat pants. Her belly is fully exposed, showing her stretch marks.
This is indecent, according to Instagram.
Mostly naked pictures of the Kardashians, on the other hand, are completely okay.
Something ain't right here!

Reds Coach Goes Blue
Bryan Price, manager of the Cincinnati Reds baseball team, is getting a little fed-up with the reporters who cover his team.
On Monday, he let loose on them - unleashing 77 F-bombs in the 5-minute or so process.
I didn't count them - a reporter for The Cincinnati Enquirer did.
He was particularly miffed about a story in The Enquirer that reported a new catcher was on the way to the team that was published - actually, tweeted out - before the old catcher had been informed he was headed for the minors.
Feel free to count the number of beeps - because here's the edited version of the tirade, from SoundCloud.
Traveling Through Time to the Top
The new World Trade Center in New York City has created a very interesting journey on its 102-floor elevator ride to the top.
It shows a three-dimensional time-lapse history of the tip of Manhattan, starting 515 years ago in 1500 and going right up through today on the 47-second ride.
It's a pretty amazing ride. Check it out.
He started the Boston Marathon on Monday at 9 AM.
He finished the Boston Marathon on Tuesday at 5 AM.
Twenty hours, and every minute of it was an inspiration.

And he runs marathons for charity, and to educate and inspire Venezuelan youth.
He's inspiring many others as well.

Do Not Take the Kylie Jenner Challenge
Tweens and teens are doing it with alarming regularity, and they really need to stop.
Taking the Kylie Jenner Challenge, that is.
Using whatever means possible to try to achieve lips similar to Kylie Jenner's.
No one knows for sure if Kylie's lips are naturally the way they look, but if they're not, she's got plenty of money to get them that way.
Kids, on the other hand, usually don't, so they're relying on other methods - jars, bottles, cups, et cetera - to try to mimic the look.
And it's not going well, causing all sorts of issues, some of which end up with hospital visits.
Don't let this happen to you!

Obi Wan Candelabra
Insiders are reporting that Ewan McGregor is in final negotiations to play Lumiere - the candelabra who sings "Be Our Guest" - in the live action version of Beauty & the Beast.
He'll be joining Emma Watson as Belle and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, among others.
That means B&B will be uniting actors from the Star Wars, Harry Potter and X-Men franchises.
Could this mean a Beauty & the Beast franchise is about to be born?
The Force is New with the Young Ones
We've seen how some grown-ups have reacted to the new trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
What we haven't seen is how non-grown-ups react.
But now, the wait is over.
Check out this absolutely amazing and adorable video of very young kids watching the trailer, and reacting to it.
Miley Pastes Two on for Joan Jett
People wondered why Miley Cyrus was asked to induct Joan Jett into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Sunday night.
Afterwards, they were just wondering what happened to the rest of her top.
In typical outlandish Miley fashion, she wore a top with the breast areas removed - maybe designed to be missing, who knows.
And to cover up her sensitive areas, a pair of pink heart-shaped pasties with a J on them.
J J - for Joan Jett, get it?
Here's a full recap of the Miley Joan moments.
Jay Z's new streaming music service Tidal launched about a month ago.
Last week, they threw the company's chief executive officer overboard - one of 25 people laid off.
After a month.
The official word is that the company is "streamlining resources to ensure talent is maximized to enhance the customer experience."
A "handful of positions" were eliminated, allowing the company to refocus on departments that need support and to "cut redundancies."
Word is that Jay Z and other of the service's top names have been personally calling subscribers to thank them.
That doesn't sound desperate at all...
Tony Romo Continues to Struggle at Home
Bad enough that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo struggles year after year under center for America's Team.
On Sunday, he showed up at the Academy of Country Music Awards show to introduce Dierks Bentley.
But before he got to that, he had to do a little schtick with hosts Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan.
Watch the video, and tell me you wish you hadn't.
The crowd loved the ball jokes, deflated and otherwise, which just proves that the beer was flowing in Dallas Sunday night...

Holy Parody, Batman!
You knew it would happen.
Following the less-than-impressive drop of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer over the weekend, you knew that folks would start having their fun with it.
This one happened sooner than I thought it would though.
An enterprising YouTuber took the audio of the real trailer, and mashed it up with video from the original Superman movie starring Christopher Reeve and the old Batman TV series starring Adam West.
And it is funny. Super funny.
