Who cares if it’s only August and we haven’t even had Halloween yet? It’s never too early for many people to start celebrating Christmas. You might not get out the tree or hang the stockings with care just yet, but you can at least start feeling jolly by listening to some seasonal tunes, right? Well, good news! A UK radio station is launching today that will play only Christmas songs from now until December 25.
- The station comes from Magic Radio. They know that times have been tough this year and they want to lift people’s spirits however they can. An easy way to do that? Christmas music, of course. Their radio station will be playing all the hits 24 hours a day for the next 120 days and while it might sound like a nightmare to some, it sounds pretty good to me!
- It came as a pleasant surprise to listeners! During his live show on the regular Magic station, presenter Ronan Keating announced, “2020 has been a hard year for us all – what better way to lift our spirits than bringing Christmas forward a few months? One of the most fulfilling parts of working at Magic Radio is to be able to connect with our listeners and bring a smile to their faces, so I can’t wait to launch ‘Magic 100% Christmas’ and turn up the Christmas cheer!”
- Who doesn’t love Christmas music? Between Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” to Wham!’s “Last Christmas” just to name a couple, there are so many good seasonal songs to listen to. Sure, you probably don’t want to hear them 5,000 times in a row (save for Mariah’s, of course), but there are enough pop songs and traditional Yuletide hymns to fill a lot of airtime.
- You don’t need to live in the UK to listen. If Christmas songs are your jam and you want in on the fun, you can listen to the radio station online via the Magic Radio Christmas website HERE. You can immediately start streaming, and why wouldn’t you?
