    I’m listening to “It’s Christmas Time” on YourTV Ottawa Valley’s CableTV Bulletin Board. They have Stingray Music playing when the Bulletin Board is up.

    I really enjoyed listening to this last night. Richard was great and it was brilliant to hear so many tracks that aren’t usually played on the radio. It was a lovely early Christmas gift!

    Heard and seen this morning in the local Target store on their video wall in the Electronics/Movies/Music Dept. A promotional video for their Target exclusive RPO cd was playing "Please Mr. Postman" and showing Richard conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

    Was over at my grandmothers house and we had the Stingray Christmas music channel on the TV and at one point the Medley from “An Old-Fashioned Christmas” came on (“Here Comes Santa Claus/Frosty The Snowman/Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer/Good King Wenceslas”). From where I was, it looked like the album credited on the screen for the Medley was “Christmas Portrait Special Edition” (I could see “Artist: Carpenters” and “Album: Christmas” as the first word, but due to my angle I couldn’t make out anything else).

    Sleigh Ride was played on Smooth Radio here in the UK on Christmas Eve, the first time I’ve ever heard it on the radio here.

  13. I heard that too (I was preparing a hot cheese and bread dip in the kitchen).

    I had heard Sleigh Ride over the last couple of years on Smooth but that was the first time I heard it this year.

    I've just listened on BBC iPlayer to this track from Steve Wright's show, and for some reason, the playback is in mono. Is anyone else hearing the same? If I'm correct, I'm really disappointed this has happened, the orchestration on this track is a dream in stereo.

    How can that be if the track was never released as a mono single and the only source is the stereo album version?

    I thought it was the program through the BBC iplayer that was mono, consequently the song too.

    BBC iPlayer is available in stereo, listening live or on demand.

    I would expect so. But there are always the possibilities of technical problems somewhere in the audio chain.

    Decided to checkout if this song was stereo on BBC iPlayer, glad to verify that it is. One piece of info from DJ Johnny Walker that I never knew, but could be common knowledge, is that Rainy Days And Mondays was originally offered to the 5th Dimension who decided to pass on it. Wondering if anyone else could confirm.

    Carpenters were sandwiched between Eydie Gorme and the Righteous Brothers. All three tracks sound mono, which is expected for Eydie Gorme and the Righteous Brothers, but not Carpenters.

    In radio, all it takes is for someone to accidentally push a button or throw a switch.

    I concur with you and speaking as a fellow radio guy it has happened in my work it only takes one little thing to set everything into chaos for lack of a better word
