Christmas Music - Programming Update
November 29 - December 31
Christmas will soon be here - here's a programming update for our loyal listeners.
First up, Black Friday and Saturday will feature 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, we Welcome You and encourage you to tune in during the Christmas season, then stick around year-round as we glorify the REAL reason for the season, Jesus Christ.
As Christmas approcahes, Shine will sprinkle in Christmas songs increasingly each day closer to Christmas Day. Then from December 16 onwards Shine will exclusively play Christmas music. And good news: Shine finds it abrupt to stop the Christmas music immediately after Christmas Day, so you will continue to enjoy Christmas songs mixed in after Christmas Day - before we finally say goodbye to the Christmas mix on New Year's Eve as we welcome in the New Year, 2020.
Important Note: for those listeners with newer cars featuring High-Definition radio receivers, you can now tune in to hear Shine's HD2 channel. Blessings on your holiday season!
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: shine1049.org/donate.
