It's the question of the week and nearly everyone is guessing wrong!

Each year the staff at KDAT prepares the Christmas music playlist, taking great care to insure the holiday hits are perfectly blended.

We also preview new songs and artists to be sure you're not missing out on any new releases. Last year we added a new rendition of the holiday classic  "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" by Maddie Poppe, and listeners response was overwhelmingly positive!

This year is no exception, and once again the most asked question is "when will the holiday music begin?"

That's actually a 'trick' question!

Users of the KDAT mobile app are aware that you can hear KDAT Christmas music right now! With just one click, you can have the sounds of the season playing 24/7 thanks to our exclusive KDAT holiday music player. 

And for those who prefer to wait for our official launch, the date is set for Friday November 22 to hear 104.5 KDAT broadcasting the Christmas Music for all of Eastern Iowa on 104.5 FM.
