Before the Halloween candy bins are even broken down, retailers start to set up the Christmas trees and trimmings in their fluorescent-lit aisles. Yesterday, one more sign of the impending holiday blitz, and our society's possible insanity: KOST-FM has gone to their all-holiday music programming already. Franklin Avenue caught the flip: "The switch happened on Thursday mid-morning, with Barry Manilow's "White Christmas," which is apparently a station tradition. (Why? I dunno.)" Ready or not, it's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas. Any early picks for what song in KOST's holiday rotation you'll grow tired of the fastest? Or which holiday song never fails to give you the warm fuzzies?
