West Michigan: Newsmakers Oct 31, 2008




Grand Rapids Press:

Before trick-or-treaters rang the first doorbell Friday night, radio stations WOOD-FM (105.7) and WLHT-FM (95.7) started ringing Christmas bells. Both switched to playing all-Christmas music Friday morning, with plans to keep playing holiday cheer until Santa hangs up his suit for another year. "The economy's not so hot, and we're in election overload. We need a little Chrismas now," said WOOD program director Kelly Iris. "We want to pick up people's spirits a little," added WLHT program director Jerry Tarrants. WOOD went directly from Michael Jackson's Halloween-appropriate "Thriller" to Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Round the Christmas Tree" at 10 a.m. Friday. Forty-six minutes later, WLHT turned on its holiday lights with Josh Groban's "Believe" from the 2004 movie "Polar Express"... Radio stations find Halloween is perfect day for Christmas music (Fri, 10/31)
