Twenty-Third Post - Ambrosia!

It is a coincidence that the last couple of posts, and now this one, involve my favourite radio station, CJCH.

But I had to mention, I would be remiss otherwise, that as of today, December 1st, all the music that CJ plays is Christmas music. And not just the non-secular music you're sick of hearing. No! There is a great deal of traditional music on the station this month. I know I'm gonna hear Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, just as I have already heard some crooners today so far. A lot of "I love God" music, too, which is fine by me, particularly with the beautiful Christmas music out there that has a strong Christian flavour.

There have been a few technical glitches so far since midnight (yes, I was awake to hear the first one, just after midnight). This afternoon, the station went to dead air; at that moment, I was close enough to the CFDR/KIXX transmitter that my car radio substituted that station instead. Pretty jarring stuff.

So, if you like traditional Christmas music, and some somewhat newer stuff (Brian Adams, the Carpenters, the Eagles, that sort of thing), then tune into CJCH, 920 AM. Or, check out their website at www.cjch.ca . There is a listen live option on the website if you want to use it.

Now, are they going to play someone singing the ORIGINAL lyrics to "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"? The updated ones make my teeth ache.

Operation REDNOSE tonight!!
