    I know it doesn't count of course but I heard parts of Christmas songs in episodes of Coronation Street on ITV 3 where they had reached Christmas 1990 - the Christmas Day episode was over a week ago, and various scenes (i.e. Ingram's factory) had various ones such as Last Christmas was on in the previous week.

    Haven't really been out because of my problems, and I haven't had the radio on much, but I know that this time last year (and the year before) either Magic or Heart dedicated their schedules to Christmas music.

    This year, Magic will do the honours (Sky Digital 0180): https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-46370245 - Having Ronan Keating as breakfast show presenter will hopefully give it a huge boost.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Sadly, I work with a chap who wants to be 'the Christmas guy'. Equally sadly, he gets into the office at 7AM; the same time as me. Since the middle of November he has been blasting Christmas songs for the first 20 minutes of the day. Oh, what a zany fellow he is. So, this year, the first Christmas song I heard was effing Mariah effing Carey and All I Want for Christmas is you.

    Thanks, Mariah, but no thanks.

    It is 9.09 am and I am listening to Magic Radio, and the first Christmas song they have played in full happens to be Wham's Last Christmas.
