I love AM radio! It’s what I grew up with. It was what I listened to on my bike, on my way to school, and in my first car. When I was given that first Lloyds AM transistor radio for my 3rd birthday (1967), I knew immediately what I wanted to do “when I grew up.”
Christmas is the one day a year when many AM stations play music. This is a great thing! Especially since, in many cases, these are heritage AM stations which *used* to play music 20, 30 or more years ago, but which have long since switched to a News/Talk format. In my mind, the tradition of continuous Christmas music on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day sounds best on AM radio. Just as some feel the Beatles and Elvis are best enjoyed when the received frequency is measured in kilohertz, rather than megahertz.
Currently, I’m enjoying the sounds of Christmas on WBAP-820 from Fort Worth/Dallas, Texas. Are you also getting your holiday audio fix from the AM dial? Tell us about it!
