Like the above Halifax station, this is another one I can receive all over Western NS and the South Shore of NS. on my car FM radio.

CKBW-FM is a radio station broadcasting at 98.1 FM in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. The station also operates in Liverpool, Nova Scotia at 94.5 FM and in Shelburne, Nova Scotia at 93.1 FM.

hiohio Alright both WTSS and WMSX went Christmas today. Too bad the latter half doesn't reach into the GTA anymore due to HD interference by CFMZ. Interesting as WMSX hasn't gone full out Christmas since flipping to their "Mix" identity.

NovaMan None have flipped here in NS, yet, but I just read an interesting article from the US on Radio Insight.

Of course most of the radio stations mentioned in the article can be heard here in Canada on the web.

Originally the day after Thanksgiving was considered the start of the Christmas season. Now as radio stations have moved up the start of their move to Christmas music, November 1 is quickly becoming the date when the Christmas season begins.
Those who do not want to listen still have many other stations they can switch to, so it shouldn't bother anyone enough to complain.
