From the Sirius backstage forum:Starting on November 19th, Sirius Holiday, Christmas Country and Classical Christmas are all returning to Sirius. Sirius Holiday lands on Starlite (ch 2) with the blend of holiday hits mixed with traditional favorites that we've grown to love. Expect to hear artists like Nat "King" Cole, Paul McCartney, Bing Crosby, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Mariah Carey and more. Christmas Country parks its sleigh on The Roadhouse (ch 62) with holiday favorites from country music's biggest stars. And finally, Classical Christmas burns a yule log on Sirius Pops (ch 86) with traditional holiday music performed by the world's leading orchestras, choirs and opera stars. Don't worry, just like last year, Starlight, The Roadhouse and Sirius Pops all will be returning to their regular programming after the holiday season.

Christmas is on the way! Welcome Christmas!

Sirius Holiday has featured cuts from Josh Groban's "Noel" CD, especially "Little Drummer Boy".  I've heard three versions of "Grown Up Christmas List", the original by Amy Grant, Michael Buble and Natalie Cole.  The latter two might not be brand new, but it's the first time I've noticed them.  Percy Faith's instrumental chestnut of "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear" has also been featured.

The funniest has to be "The 12 Pains of Christmas".  Instead of "Five Golden Rings", it's "Five months of bills".  There's also "facing my in-laws", "batteries not included" and "finding a Christmas tree" among others.  It's all in good humor!

I'm also sampling chs 62 and 86 for a change of pace as well as XMs holiday offerings on AOL Radio.  Nice to have so many choices!  Lite-FM?  Bah humbug!  CBS-FM?  Who cares?

Once upon a time, 93.1 gradually worked its way to Christmas, adding a few holiday songs each hour until about 12 noon on Dec 24 when they'd go all-Christmas until midnight Dec 25.  I never thought I'd have so many choices and be able to hear Christmas music from mid-November right through the end of December.

Merry Christmas and enjoy the music, wherever you get it from!
