So...you thought I wasn't still keeping an eye on KRTH and the Xmas music. Well, you were wrong. I've deleted the SPAM and am BACK!
It's 2010. Thanksgiving is coming soon. Will Jhani Kaye play good, great, or horrible Christmas music? Will he simply copy KOST FM in a cowardly and sad effort to ride their coattails, or will he do something unique and different that offers us a choice?
Most likely the former, but you never know.
Interestingly, last year saw KOST adding more of the KRTH type tunes (Sinatra, Bing, etc) to their list. Shows you that everyone loves the classics.
Let's hope we hear CLASSIC Xmas tunes on the CLASSIC station, and leave the easy listening / modern material to KOST. Anyone who wants to hear Lionel Richie, Barry Manilow, and the Carpenters is already listening to KOST. Let's hear some good stuff on KRTH. Ventures, Sinatra, Chuck Berry..... You got the idea. For God sakes, leave Mannheim Steamroller to PBS.
And bring back Boney M.
