DOWNTOWN — Christmas is weeks away, but you can start listening to your favorite holiday tunes as early as Tuesday.
Starting at 4 p.m. Tuesday, 93.9 Lite FM will play all holiday music, the station announced Monday. The station traditionally plays only Christmas music November through January.
“There’s no place like home for the holidays and we are delighted to be Chicagoland’s home for holiday cheer in our 19th year,” Mick Lee, program director and afternoon host at 93.9 Lite FM, said in a statement to media reporter Robert Feder. “We’re honored that so many Chicagoans include us in their annual holiday traditions, and we can’t wait to celebrate the season with Christmas music, fun contests, and a few new surprises along the way.”
The earliest the station has launched its 24/7 Christmas music was Nov. 2 in 2006 and 2007, Feder previously noted.
