We're all gonna told about Christmas music I mean the -- -- 107 point school from the very festive.
And you know put out of the holidays is the music.
But you know no matter how many new Christmas albums new stuff that gets released we all seem to go back to the classics.
Joining us now -- music director of WT.
Hello my radio Andrew psych -- cycle welcome to the program thank you Bratton and I appreciate it I'm gonna play a -- of being cross.
And revenue of Red Cross of bailout yet and I thought riff of that it Hendrix at a risk for big cause it a couple of bonds ladies and Jerry and -- all Bing Crosby a white Christmas.
Is this good.
Like this -- All along now yeah now.
Why is that so popular I love it and why -- it -- I think because it's familiar.
-- people that are listening I mean -- people -- -- be feeling warm and Fuzzy and loving around the holidays don't wanna hear about Justin Bieber talking about you know kissing her -- any missile tower.
Wonder -- it does it it's familiar it's a classic and it's a staple -- for music that's played no one month out of the year.
You know why go new in and France and hit one -- to stick the class you all the music directors that you decide which music goes on -- station on somewhat yet we don't play Christmas music I wanna be clear that we we don't -- the Christmas music thing that's not why not it's just you know it's it's it's something to be out there for -- certain stations to do.
We we don't stick to the Christmas music month Long Will play you know -- -- hits here in there.
Hot Christmas Carol why the Christmas song wise but we have we don't do that when he -- seven thing but that's what people want that if you look to do Christmas put all the holiday music you get a little tired of the Christmas music after a week living.
-- -- I just want to play a little bit of I think this is Michael Jackson -- screeching -- not a Santa Claus coming to town and we just like the passed away yeah -- this.
Really -- to listen.
-- it is and I think the problem with.
You agreement I do and I think the problem with with newer artists coming out with new worst songs is you know it takes so much to write the court to produce that a lot of new artists nowadays they're not gonna spend the time in the money in the effort to do -- when it's like as a one month out of the year.
In that case as as I'd much of the don't wanna speak badly of Michael Jackson that is pretty terrible.
And almost every year that we see a lot of holiday I think it was clo Marines got one of the Muppets we'll tell what -- -- almost every year Bob Quantum come out the white any amount.
I think it's they're trying to create something that just can't be created and I also think it's the wrong artists doing if you had somebody like -- -- Or Bruno Mars to try to do it I think that -- work and I also think.
Just writing one song isn't enough I think you have to to a Christmas album and like as and I don't think the artists have the time effort money.
That they come out with these new Christmas songs every yet because it's a guaranteed -- not and you Austin -- -- edit the if you get a hit is going to be played year after year after year well that's just a money machine.
What it's very hard to have a -- I think the last real.
-- Christmas -- with Mariah Carey's all I want for Christmas you.
I mean and think tried to do it buy it didn't work -- as a Justin Bieber tried to do a couple years ago it it's just that my daughter's twenty years old age she's I think probably listens to the music they look at put on.
All the time her favorite song in the world is -- king -- Mistresses like chestnuts roasting general put aside about a few bonds -- can call that's her favorite favourite I was I was what did you read a lot of what -- quite.
This news again this is a sound bites from that king's I want what you'll be possible -- -- the all the prisoners movie that you that audio and I'll life.
John Lennon's had -- yes or no yes yes absolute favorite -- that is that something modern that.
I can get -- on and he noted that funny thing about that song is I can listen that year round.
And and still sing along to it and still love it just as much.
You know you're all right a site that -- that's very good indeed.
