XM radio is unveiling a new sattelite station XM108 called Radio Hanukkah. This is the first station of the kind, that will revolve around Hanukkah themed programming through the festival of lights. (source)
Many stations have begun doing non-stop Christmas programming through the month of December. In fact according to 100000 Watts, this year 399 stations have switched to all-Christmas programming (up from 302 last year). (A complete list of stations can be found here)
My wife has been frequently turning on one of the 3 local Christmas stations available were we live. The other night we were working on Christmas cards together and each song got worse and worse, because honestly, not all Christmas songs can be good ones.
One of the new songs they played was a song called "All I want for Christmas is a Soldier Coming Home." Now this song, in itself, is a very touching song, except for the fact that it is sang by a man. The song sung by the relatively unknown country singer Monty Lane Allen (pictured left), would have been much better sung by a female vocalist, because as it plays, it certainly sounds a little homoerotic. The music video to Allen's touching Christmas song can be seen and heard here.
