You would think that down here in South Fundistan you would find a radio station playing traditional Christmas carols around the actual holiday, but not this year. The Evangelical propaganda ministry that controls several stations was broadcasting weird new songs that mentioned the ‘reason for the season’ only in passing.
NPR went HD locally and only put the news/talk format on the airwaves for regular radios. The music channel requires buying another radio.
The people who actually control programming on the local radio stations don’t actually live here, so they only respond to the ratings, which are not representative of the area.
The problem for me is gathering up all of my Mother’s Christmas CDs and putting them out by her player, instead of just tuning her radio to a station. Like there wasn’t enough to do at this time of the year …
