Noooooo I hadn't until I clicked on your link.

You deserve a groan, Ms Marple - you need to learn to suffer on your own

Re: I've been whammed

I deliberately didn't click on that link.
I hope to avoid being whammed until at least the first of December and hopefully even longer than that.

Re: I've been whammed

You're obviously all listening to the wrong channels. Option Musique - they rarely play any Christmas music which surprised the heck out of me when I first tuned in. Haven't heard one yet this year and like Belgianmum I don't think they'll start until 1st December at the earliest, could even be later.

We were listening to Radio Argovia but thankfully missed that.

We have just posted pressies to family in New Zealand, which is one less stress.

I wish I was six again with all the excitement that Christmas brought in those long ago days.

Re: I've been whammed

If you listen to Radio Argovia, you deserve that and worse.

Like Mariah Carey worse.

That was very unkind. Nobody deserves Mariah Carey.


Although, come to think of it, a few members kind of do.... Thanks for the tip.

I might be tempted to listen to that version.

Couleur3 doesn't cut the swear words out of songs either but they haven't started playing Christmas songs just yet fortunately.

Re: I've been whammed

Over here on my side of the pond, there are radio stations which have switched to all-Christmas as of a couple of weeks ago.

Every time I get whammed, I find myself trying to count how many George Michael says "Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, but the very next day you gave it away..."

It's so many times that it makes me crazy.

Re: I've been whammed

I listen a lot to Classic FM and have no problem listening to the carols when they start - love xmas carols. It's the festive piped music in shops which drive me nuts.. feel very sorry for shop workers. I mean, how many times can you listen to Wham without wanting to throttle someone?
