KOSI 101 switches to Christmas music for 21st year

KOSI 101.1 changed to an all-Christmas music format with a live event at Park Meadows mall.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Christmas music lovers, rejoice!

Denver radio station KOSI 101.1 has turned on the Christmas music.

KOSI made the change during a live event at Park Meadows mall at 12 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11.

"This year we thought it would be fun to make the switch to all Christmas music out at Park Meadows Retail Resort," KOSI 101.1 Program Director Jim Lawson said.

This is the 21st year that KOSI 101.1 FM has changed to an all-Christmas music format.

The annual Denver tradition attracts over a million local listeners each week.

Also new this year, one lucky child got to push the big red button with Santa to help start the first Christmas song of the year, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" by Andy Williams.

So get ready for Bing Crosby, Burl Ives, Mariah Carey, Andy Williams, Michael Bublé, Gene Autry, Carrie Underwood, Johnny Mathis, Josh Groban, John Legend and the hippopotamus song – 24 hours a day.
