The web player allows to switch between related stations.

1. AccuHolidays

AccuHolidaysAccuHolidays features a long list of holiday music radio stations, for example Holiday on Broadway, Quiet Christmas Eve, Blue and White Christmas, and Celtic Christmas.

Select a station from the site to launch the AccuHolidays player. Alternatively, you can build your own music mix, i.e. mix all your favorite stations. The player shows the current song and you can quickly switch to other channels or modify the list of artists (read: ban artists) used for this station.

I love the option to remove artists from the playlist. Goodbye Mariah and Celine!

If you’re looking for Christmas midis check out Christmas music from All Things Christmas.

What is your favorite Christmas song and which one do you hate the most? I have to admit I don’t mind Last Christmas at all. My favorite, however, is a different one each year.

  • Shaye with AKL Resurfacing

    Tina,

    THANK YOU for this article! We usually listen to LastFM for our “normal” day-to-day music listening while we’re working on our little tub refinishing business here in Tampa Bay, Florida (the workdays go by better with music, always!) but I’m really enjoying the AccuHolidays channel. We’ll definitely be playing this while opening presents tomorrow. Now off to listen to it while wrapping up my baking and the billions of appetizers I have to make. :) Happy Holidays!

    • Tina

      Dear Shaye,
      I’m glad you find the Xmas radios useful. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It’s always great to hear when people enjoy what I write about.
      Happy Holidays and all the best to you and yours!

  • FrankP3

    Well, since I havent had normal hearing in years, I cant tell the difference in live music and a mp3.

    Anyways, Tina, good article, and next, maybe follow this with the best free sites to get holiday themed wallpaper, etc for your puters/macs?

    After that, how about researching where the best internet controllable light/deco displays are found? Sites like Alek’s Controllable Christmas Lights for Celiac Disease, at http://www.komar.org/cgi-bin/christmas_webcam , is a great example.

    Another site is http://xmas.asthmatickitty.com/. It’s not traditional music, but it is rather sublime.

  • Shawn

    I’ve always liked the Christmas stations available on live365.com, there’s enough variety on there for whatever mood I happen to be in…

    • Tina

      Shawn,

      thank you for the comment!

      What I did not like about live365.com is that it opens in the same browser window and resizes it. It’s actually quite annoying when you have other tabs open in that window.

      The play button does not allow to manually open / play the station in a new window. It may just be my browser settings, but I didn’t run into this issue with the sites in my list.

      For anyone still interested in live365, here is the link to their Christmas station: http://www.live365.com/cgi-bin/directory.cgi?genre=search&searchdesc=christmas
