PHOENIX — With Halloween done and out of the way, Christmas music will soon hit the Valley's airwaves.

Phoenix radio station, 99.9 KEZ, announced in October that it would switch to its all-Christmas format at 7:55 a.m. Friday, Nov. 6.

"We announced it early this year, so we can have something to look forward to. After the year we’ve all had, we all need something to look forward to," said Program Director Paul Kelley, according to KEZ's website.

KEZ temporarily played Christmas music in March and July this year because of the pandemic and viewer requests.

For those looking to listen to holiday tunes now or year-round, there are plenty of platforms that have Christmas playlists, such as IHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, and Radio.com.
