Reporting Live From Maine (For Once. At Last.)

Portland's WHOM is featured in a report on 24/7 Christmas programming. WHOM is usually adult contemporary music but switches to all holiday music (someone from away wrote this article, as this being Maine, it's just fine to say Christmas) the day after Thanksgiving.

WHOM gets a 38% bump in listeners when it switches formats (count me as one of the switchers, but as soon as Christmas is over, I'm right back to FNX).

The top 10 Christmas songs played on radio the week after Thanksgiving:

1. Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree, Brenda Lee
2. A Holly Jolly Christmas, Burl Ives
3. Jingle Bell Rock, Bobby Helms
4. Feliz Navidad, Jose Feliciano
5. The Christmas Song, Nat King Cole
6. White Christmas, Bing Crosby
7. Please Come Home For Christmas, The Eagles
8. It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, Andy Williams
9. Happy Xmas (War Is Over) John Lennon
10. It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, Johnny Mathis
