I love Bing Crosby on a lot of levels. I would love him even more if I didn’t have to listen to him incessantly singing about a White Christmas starting about Nov. 1 of each year. 

Am I really the only one for whom the constant Christmas music is starting just a little too early each year to be as special as it should be? Is there no creativity left in radio programming so that the only response they have to filling air time is playing Wayne Newton watching mommy kissing Santa Claus starting way too soon after Labor Day? Or is this just an insidious attempt on the part of business to get us to spend even more on the holidays by starting our shopping before most of us have put our summer sandals away?
