Too Soon: Christmas Music on Moving' 101.1 FM



(Welcome to "Too Soon," an occasional feature pointing out wince-worthy, bizarre or otherwise oddball events related to music in the Lou.)

Dear Movin' 101.1,

I know that you're switching formats and all at the end of the year, so you're in a lame duck situation and really have nothing to lose. But there is absolutely no reason why you should be playing Christmas music on October 10. It is still warm and sunny outside; I don't want to hear Wham!'s "Last Christmas" right now, an occurrence which happened last night when I was driving home. It's not cute or renegade to beat every station in town to playing the holiday tunes; it's just sort of dumb.

Love, A Holiday Music Fan, But Only When It's After Thanksgiving
