DJ Sam Hunt on-the-air
AMHERST – The Christmas countdown has begun at Tantramar Community Radio. Starting this weekend, expect to hear a Christmas song in the mix each hour. And the ratio will change as the holiday approaches. By Dec. 23, the plan is to have Christmas music nonstop, according to operations manager Ron Bickle, although the content of individual shows will vary. Bickle emphasized the music they typically choose is classic fare - holiday favourites, choral arrangements and hymns, with east coast and Maritime flavour, too. Listeners shouldn't expect popstar twists on traditional tunes, or Jingle Bell Rock-type tracks.
