About Those Medleys

It’s December 2 and I have already been asked several times. In fact, the question actually first appeared the day after Thanksgiving. What was the question?

When are the Christmas Medleys going to begin?

The simple answer is they won’t be, not because I don’t enjoy posting them, but rather because listeners have so many options available to them.

There’s Spotify, Pandora, Sirius, Amazon Alexa, YouTube, and that’s just for starters.

I’m pretty sure my daily 15-20 minute medleys going up against those music-driven sites would be a David vs. Goliath battle, and David wouldn’t win this time around. 🙂

    Disappointing news. There are the music sites you mentioned but unless I pay for a premium service on any of them, I get constantly interrupted by talk and commercials. Your music was free and there were no commercials.

      Thanks for the input, Dan.
      I’m sorry this disappoints you but the reality is posting Christmas music medleys would have resulted in numbers too low in volume to justify the effort. That is the same dilemma I have been experiencing with the history columns for the past few months, and those too may fall by the wayside soon.

    Good morning my friend – I totally understand and will be happy with anything you put together for us to listen and learn from … enjoy every day Ray – we both know each is a gift … there is Christmas music everywhere but not so with history lessons … they are now my morning newspaper …. and I am thankful for them….

      Thank you, Barbara. There was a time (before all the streaming services were so prevalent) that music medleys were quite popular on this site. That, of course, has changed and I’m fine with it (less work for me!) 🙂
      The history lessons are going to continue, at least for now. Time will tell if I can continue those and do a morning radio show at the same time.
      Rock The Day!
