Last year, D* XM line up didnt start Holiday Music til after Thanksgiving. No one ever explained why. I love D* dearly but they are horribble communicators. XM radio began Holiday Music broadcasts on 1 channel Nov 1st and they will add 4 more Holiday channels on Nov 19th as well as a Hannukak Channel on Dec 4th. I have been unable to locate any current Holiday music on the D* XM lineup, and as usual D* hasnt indicated any scheduling plans. Perhaps this year D* or XM, whoever is responsible could start the Holiday Music BEFORE Thanksgiving.
