This thread is to track any Holiday music format flips on your local AM/FM radio stations for 2018.

WTSS (Star 102.5 - Buffalo, NY) that is available in most of the GTA has flipped to an all holiday format (24/7) starting on U.S. election day the last several years. Expect it to flip again this upcoming Tuesday (November 6th).

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.

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.

Also, I read a report that CKWS-FM, broadcasting at 104.3 FM in Kingston, Ontario, flips at the same time.
