KVNE for Christmas

kvneI spend a lot of time in my car; at least two hours a day. I try to fill the time by listening to podcasts, audiobooks and occasionally music. I generally see music radio as a dying medium. Only occasionally will I tune in to hear what is essentially someone else’s playlist.

For instance, when my son wants to listen to something and I’m tired of the same old tracks over and over again, I will occasionally turn to KVNE, the local Christian radio station. With the exception of a song that sounds like it could have been sung by the likes of Paula Abdul, circa 1990, I can at least trust the music will not contain anything objectionable.

By the way, I don’t know the name of the aforementioned song, or why it’s such a favorite of the morning crew, but it’s a terrible song! All sarcasm aside though, KVNE has been a staple of the Christian community in Tyler since I was a child. I’ve never been a big listener, not so much because I object to their message or ministry, but mostly because I’ve never been a huge fan of contemporary Christian music.

I do like the fact that the station is involved in a lot of charitable causes in our area. I do have to admit however, that over the last couple of weeks, I have actually enjoyed the station’s Christmas music. Every year over Advent, they play only (or mostly), Christmas music.

I prefer the more traditional songs and carols but I think the station has done a fairly nice job perpetuating the Holiday Spirit. If you’ve not already become tired of seasonal music, or you’re looking for a little Christmas cheer, you might be surprised to find yourself enjoying 89.5.
