...inspired by a Radio George listener.

In December of 2010, an email from a Radio George listener suggested a channel of traditional Christmas music. At first, the idea struck me as a little odd. I had created the three Smooth Jazz Christmas channels specifically to get away from the same old stuff on the temporary all-Christmas formatted radio stations on the AM/FM band, and the music permeating the air in every other store, restaurant, or office building you enter this time of year.

What was I missing that someone asked for a traditional Christmas music channel?

Then it hit me: there are none!

The music on "temporary Christmas" AM/FM stations and in stores is a thrown-together mess, with (1) traditional songs, and selections by contemporary artists whose producers seem to have a compulsion to screw around with the arrangements simply to be "different," and  (2) the recordings that were forced upon artists between the 60's and 90's to record, simply to have 10-12 tunes to make up a Christmas album to peddle.

The problem with that is that Conway Twitty's version of "White Christmas" will never be considered a memorable hit, nor will the Beach Boys singing "We Three Kings of Orient Are" [yes, they actually did record that], nor will "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles. Got it?

In contrast, the Christmas tunes by singers such as Andy Williams, Johnny Mathis, Nat King Cole, the Boston Pops, and a slew of others ARE the ones that are remembered and continued to be loved today--traditional Christmas songs.

So my Christmas gift to all Radio George listeners who remember the greatest Christmas songs of all time: three and a half hours' worth from the fifties to the seventies.

The response to this channel in 2010, the year it was introduced, was simply overwhelming. More people from around the world listened to it that December than any other Radio George channel. That's why  traditional channels two and three were added the next year, in 2011.

Enjoy them, email your friends who will want to hear A Traditional Christmas on Radio George---and of course, thanks for listening.
