Heart’s Radio Station Dedicated To Christmas Music Has Now Launched
A radio station dedicated entirely to Christmas tunes has now dropped onto our airwaves, giving us all the perfect material to get into the festive spirit over the next two months.
Heart Radio went live with its Christmassy sister station Heart Xmas today, bringing the nation a 24/7 stream of seasonal songs from the past 50 years.
The launch of Heart Xmas comes a little earlier this year, with hopes that it'll help give the nation a much-needed boost.
This means you can grab a mince pie and sing along to the likes of Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You', Chris Rea's seminal hit 'Driving Home For Christmas', Wham! classic 'Last Christmas' and 'Do They Know It's Christmas' from the Band Aid crew.
"We've switched on Heart Xmas to turn up the festive feel good!" a Twitter post said.
"Anyone else BUZZING Christmas has come early?!"
While some people commented to grumble how it's 'too early' and 'not even Halloween yet', many others were delighted to hear that the first signs of Christmas had arrived.
One tweeted: "Buzzing love the Xmas station."
Another said: "Love Christmas songs."

Personally, I reckon if Christmas tunes bring you joy after what's been an undoubtedly rough year, I say go for it - whatever the month.
Andy Everett, Managing Editor of Heart, said: "With the nation turning to radio for light-hearted escapism and comfort, we are thrilled to bring listeners some festive feel good cheer earlier than ever before this year as we launch Heart Xmas today!
"With the clocks going back, we're switching on Christmas as Heart's much-loved festive sister station returns, playing the nation's favourite festive tunes from the past 50 years, non-stop, 24/7.
"The countdown to the big day is officially on here on Heart Xmas!"
Heart Breakfast's Jamie Theakston added: "It may be October, but we're kick-starting our Christmas countdown on Heart earlier than ever before!
"As the clocks go back, we're bringing the festive feel good forward to help lift the spirits of the nation over the next few months."
To listen along, simply tune into Heart Xmas on your DAB Digital radio player, Global Player, smart speaker, iOS or Android device.
And if you don't think it's too early to bust out the festive songs, remember - there's also a Christmas music channel that dropped earlier this month.
Trace Xmas, which comes from Trace TV, is providing a '24/7 Christmas soundtrack' for the next few months', and is available on Sky Channel 364.
