AccuRadio to Launch 100 Holiday Stations By Christmas

AccuRadio will offer listeners 100 channels of holiday season music, launching dozens and dozens of channels of Christmas and holiday-themed music, spanning practically every imaginable genre, theme and mood -- from Christmas standards, Country, R&B and Latin music to Christmas rock, jazz, gospel and more. Since Halloween, AccuRadio's programmers have been adding at least one channel of holiday music per day as part of the digital radio service's "Countdown to Christmas."

Last holiday season, AccuRadio launched a total of 81 channels, but this year they vow to go all the way to 100 by December 25. They want to give listeners the merriest season possible, with a nearly limitless choice of music to brighten and heighten the holiday mood for Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.

"Will it be challenging for us to get to 100 stations? Absolutely. We've never done this before for any of our genres. We're going to have to think outside the (gift) box," said AccuRadio founder and CEO Kurt Hanson. "But our listeners love us year-round because we offer them an incredible array of music channels for every taste and setting, whether it's the work day, socializing or chill time."

The main channel, "Holidays Radio," features hundreds of songs, from Frank Sinatra and the Beach Boys to Mariah Carey and Josh Groban. AccuRadio holiday channels include Holiday Pop, Smooth Christmas, Smooth Hanukkah, Jazzy Christmas Party, Swingin' Little Christmas (crooners with horn sections), Reggae Christmas, Brazilian Christmas, Celtic Christmas, Indie Rock Christmas, Gospel Christmas and more.
