For these two radio stations, Christmas isn’t just a holiday — it’s a state of mind.
US radio stations 92.7 FM in Chattanooga, Tennessee and 1230 AM in Gainesville, Florida have been playing holiday music continuously for the past five to six months since the start of the holiday season in 2021. reports RadioInsight.com on Friday.
Stations have been known to extend their Christmas music playlists well into the New Year, but this year reportedly marks the longest Christmas music streak to date – and the second year in a row that a radio station has celebrated Christmas well into March.
The radio industry news site added that 92.7 FM lost its flagship brand last fallwhen Sabatino Cuppelli’s conservative talk “Nooga Radio” was moved to 96.9.
Meanwhile, the Gainesville station is reportedly embroiled in its own ownership battle, which court records say the seller is charging with racial discrimination.
The Post reached out to radio station owners and operators for comment on its ongoing Christmas programming, though its subsequent switchover may be a clue.
Last year, 100.9 in Richmond, Virginia, kept the holiday spirit going through March 4th, just before rebranding as a classic hits radio station.
