Yesterday, I saw a TV commercial announcing a Black Friday sale today. It seems as though not that long ago, Black Friday was the day following Thanksgiving. I was left wondering, are merchants taking advantage of the stress that people are feeling over the Presidential election and COVID by offering them the chance to self-administer some “retail therapy?”
I’m confused by K103’s pronouncement of it being their 20th anniversary, playing Christmas music: My first thought was that they meant to say that it was their 20th year but then got to thinking that as I recall, KLTH, then K103’s direct competitor, switched to All Christmas, as some stations did, in the aftermath of the 911 disaster which much to everyone’s surprise garnered great ratings and began an American tradition! The next year, K103 put on their version and sometime later, Clear Channel had purchased KLTH and switched it to Classic Hits. By this reasoning, it’s only K103’s 19th year or 18th anniversary!
