    Yet again Sirius Classic radio has chosen to shove Christmas down the throats of its listeners. This week "Christmas in July" presents nothing but old radio shows about Christmas. Most of these shows are poorly written, overly sentimental tripe. They were bad at the time. Now, sixty or so years later, they are unbearable to listen to.
    What twisted logic insists we listen to boring, insipid Christmas shows in the middle of the summer? Worst of all, the announcer has informed us that he knows there is a group of listeners who object to Christmas in July, and if we don't like it we can change channels! Lovely.
    Ordinarily Sirius Classic Radio is my favorite station. Not this week. Bah humbug!

    LOL! Welcome to the DRC Nevada. Great opening rant.

    I never knew they were doing this. The Mrs would be happy. . . . I don't think I'll tell her. . . . .

    Make yourself at home.

    Sirius is forcing you to change the channel. The only way to get some people to change the dial. Welcome to DRC :welcome:

    I caught my wife listening to Christmas music the other day. she must have been feeling overly sentimental I guess.... :rolleyes:

    It's a gimmick, Radio Classics seems to always be looking for them. Glad to hear someone still listens to it on a regular basis.

    Welcome Las Vegas 360!

    This is an XM holdover. They used to do it on all their channels. You would hear Xmas countdowns by Casey Casem and various other Xmas programming. Classics must be the last channel still doing it.

    I tend to agree that it is not my taste. I barely tolerate Xmas crap in December. But SatRad (particularly XM) pushed the envelope sometimes. This was one of those times.

    Welcome to DRC.

    It is only fair now to have a 4th of July celebration during Christmas.

    Hey, isn't the point of SiriusXM to get music and content we can't get anywhere else?

    And think of it as about a two-month countdown until Christmas stuff starts appearing in your local retail stores. [​IMG]

    Yes. Sirius XM should be the place for niche programming, like Radio Classics.

    Guess it's that time of year. A miracle on 34th street is playing on AMC.

    It's a shame they don't take chances like that anymore.
