It's starting to look a lot like christmas!!

17th November 2011


So at the weekend we had THAT christmas ad, you know the one, big truck, santa on the side of it, fizzy drink company telling us about holidays! BUT wait, who are they to say christmas is here, I would say christmas arrived in Sunderland tonight with the official light switch on. It's always a great evening and we are all going to be down there along with Steve Cram. It's the first time that I get a little twinge of that christmas feeling, and it's fine to hear christmas songs on the night. The question is should we be playing christmas songs on the radio yet?? My personal opinion is NO. Don't get me wrong, I love christmas songs, they are all timeless and we dust them off every year, but we don't want to dilute the specialness (it's a word!) of them. If we start playing them now I fear we will be really fed up of them by christmas. As you can see I've included a little christmas tune for you, incase you need it, hopefully this will get you through until December when we can roll out Mariah, Wham and of course various artist on 'Feed the World'. I don't want you to get the wrong impression, I am a fan of christmas and all that comes with it, but I like it for the short period it is here and just don't want to start too early. So it's nice that the christmas lights are going on, but just hold off on the tunes a little longer and I promise you will love them more for it. HoHoHo!!
