Is October 5th too early to get in the Christmas spirit? Not if you're Syracuse radio owner Craig Fox.

Central New York listeners can now hear holiday music on 95.3 FM in Syracuse and 103.9 FM in Oswego thanks to a format switch and lineup shuffle over the weekend, more than 11 weeks before Christmas. The new station is called Holly-FM (WNDR), promising a mix of "your favorite contemporary and traditional holiday songs."

New website HollyFM.com includes a picture of mistletoe, videos from movies like "Elf, " "A Christmas Story" and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas, " and links to sister stations Wolf 105.1 and Movin' 100.

Love Radio (WVOA-FM), which previously broadcasted at 95.3 in Syracuse and 103.9 in Oswego, has moved to 87.7 on the FM dial due to the switch. The Fox-owned Christian radio station's new frequency is technically the audio carrier on television channel 6, according to CNY Radio.

Traditionally, local radio stations have begun playing holiday music in November. In recent years Syracuse's Sunny 102.1 (WZUN) and Utica-Rome's Mix 102.5 (WUMX) switched on November 1, followed by Syracuse's Y94FM (WYYY) and Utica-Rome's Lite 98.7 (WLZW) a week or two before Thanksgiving.

But Holly-FM beat its competitors to the punch by starting to deck the halls in the first week of October. Station manager and "chief elf" Sam Furco pointed to this year's earlier holiday shopping season that began for some retailers in mid-September as a reason for the early start.

"After noticing retail trends that begin the holiday shopping season, WOLF Radio announces Holly-FM where retailers and consumers can tune in to modern and traditional holiday songs as a soundtrack to enhance the holiday experience, " Furco said in a statement.

And soon they'll have a bevy of new music to add to that soundtrack, as artists releasing holiday albums this month include Mary J. Blige, Il Volo, Martina McBride, Susan Boyle, Neil Diamond, Barbra Streisand, Kelly Clarkson and even The Robertsons of "Duck Dynasty" fame.

Nope! I play online radio Christmas

Music just about every day currently. iheart.com has all kinds of radio choices including several different Christmas channels. I've been listening to this one, , mostly Bing Crosby era through the 90's. It sounds like a channel my Grandma would pick and reminds me of Christmas at her house.
