Sounds of the Season ~
Each Christmas season, PRAISE 106.5 plays a mix of traditional holiday favorites like “Frosty the Snowman”, “Rudolph”, “Sleigh Ride”, “Jingle Bells” and other ‘secular’ songs, along with more spiritual and reverent Christian songs like “O Holy Night”, “Silent Night” and “The First Noel”.
But why doesn’t PRAISE just play songs about Jesus?
Christmas is an amazing opportunity for PRAISE to reach people who normally wouldn’t listen to a Christian radio station. People are scanning their radio dials, looking for familiar and favorite songs that bring back warm Christmas memories. When they hear songs they know and love, they will tune in at work, in the car, and at home.
The more people listen, the more they will hear songs about Jesus, and messages of hope and encouragement from our DJs. They’ll hear there’s much more to this season than just food, family, and gifts. We want ALL people to hear about the hope of Jesus in the music, both now and after Christmas. Luke 2:10 “I bring you good news of great joy that will be for ALL the people.”
The heart of PRAISE 106.5 is that our music and programming will have the greatest impact on the most people during the holiday season. And that our station can help invite people in who may not know the hope and true meaning of the season: that our savior came to Earth as a humble baby, to take on the sin of the world!
So when you hear a “non-Jesus” song, think: we are reaching people who wouldn’t normally listen to a Christian station! We’re sharing Jesus with them! Won’t you join us and pray for God to do a mighty work this season? And help us by sharing Christmas PRAISE? Encourage your friends, family and neighbors to tune in.
It has been such an encouragement each year to hear of people who started listening only because of Christmas music, and then kept on listening. We’ve heard amazing stories of how God used PRAISE 106.5 to change their lives, and it all began with Christmas music they knew and loved.
We hope this helps you understand our reason behind the Christmas music this season.
