Every year on launch day I find myself in disbelief that the countdown clock (that starts churning on January 1st) is about to reach zero and we blast off into another season of Tinsel & Tunes. Tonight, we are back at it and this year will be our best yet. On a programming front more than 100 new songs have been added and a few long-standing T&T classics have been retired. Due to the popularity of our Christmas Day programming with limited interruptions from 4am to 2pm, we are bringing it back. When you tune in on December 24th, starting at midnight EST, we will broadcast with very limited station announcements and interruptions until 2pm on Christmas Day. Additionally, we will offer a special presentation at midnight Christmas Eve into Christmas Day! You do not want to miss it.

The App is Back!
We just submitted the brand new Tinsel & Tunes 2013 iPhone app to Apple for approval this afternoon! I couldn’t be more excited. The app itself has been completely redesigned for iOS7 and features the best sounding AAC+ stream we have ever produced! Our 32k AAC+ mobile stream is perfect for people with data plans as it uses nearly 100kbs less than virtually all other streaming services while offering incredible sound.

For those of you without iPhones, just click the “mobile” listening link on our listen page or download the Tune-In app.

Lastly, I’d like to thank you, our listeners, for your ongoing support! We are in our 8th official season of broadcasting Tinsel & Tunes – and we’re still commercial free. We wouldn’t be here without you and for your support I’m eternally grateful.

Wishing you Happy Holiday, the Merriest of Christmases and a joyous New Year! Thanks for making us part of your holiday traditions.
