Why in the middle of summer do we have Christmas Movies non stop on basic TV package, surely there are more films to pick from

Re: Christmas Movies

Well one of the Radio One DJ's used to have a standing joke each year as to how early he could get away with playing a christmas song, I think he managed the end of August one year...

Re: Christmas Movies

I remember Johnny Walker, around 1972-1973  catching me out on radio 1.

He kept saying there will be an exclusive interview at 1 o'clock with Gladys Knight. 

At 1pm came the apology, "sorry, we couldn't get Gladys Knight but here are the pips" ..  pip .. pip ...pip

Re: Christmas Movies

Movies 24 done the same last year, copying the Hallmark Channel in the US.

As is usual what the Americans do, we usually follow a while later.
