Christmas Music - Programming Update

November 26 - December 31

Christmas will soon be here - here's a programming update for our loyal listeners.

First up, Black Friday through the weekend we will kick off the season featuring 100% Christmas music, to kickoff the season!

Sometimes we get asked the question "Why does Shine play secular Christmas songs mixed with the sacred carols?" The answer is that as an outreach ministry, Shine is always looking for ways to reach new listeners who might not know about Jesus. People love the traditional songs of Christmas and over the years we've had many people scanning the dial looking for their favorite Christmas songs who hear the Christmas mix on Shine, so they stick around and become regular Shine listeners. If you're new to Shine 104.9, we Welcome You and encourage you to tune in during the Christmas season, then stick around as we glorify the REAL reason for the season, Jesus Christ, year-round!

After the first weekend of Thanksgiving as Christmas approaches, Shine will start at about a 50/50% mix, but will sprinkle in Christmas songs increasingly each day closer to Christmas Day. Then the week leading up to the holiday Shine will exclusively play Christmas music. And good news: we find it abrupt to stop the Christmas music immediately after Christmas Day, so you will continue to enjoy Christmas songs mixed in for a few days after Christmas Day up until New Years - before we finally say goodbye to the Christmas mix on January 2 and we welcome in the New Year.

Important Note: for those listeners with newer cars featuring High-Definition radio receivers, you can now tune in to hear Shine's HD3 channel: commercial-free, announcer-free Christmas music with the best variety of any station in the Spokane region, guaranteed.

If you believe in the local mission of Christian radio, we'd be grateful if you would consider a year-end tax-deductible gift for the ministry of Shine 104.9. You can do it easily right here: Blessings on your holiday season!
