    Christmas and Then Some - off the air

    My favorite Christmas Internet radio station, Christmas and Then Some, went off the air Saturday night. Their streaming partner, Live365, went out of business Sunday, and they're looking for a new streaming partner. The problem is that most streaming services cost more now than before, and the owner of Christmas and Then Some is trying to raise money to put the station on a new streaming service.

    Any updates to this? Are there any other online Christmas channels that are streaming? I know there is a channel on Sirius/XM Satellite radio that plays Christmas music year round, but I can only access that in my vehicle.

    I've kept in contact with the owner of the station, and he was hoping to have something in place by the end of July. He said he had tested one streaming solution earlier in the year but it just wasn't up to par for what he needed, so the search continues.

    I received a message from the gentleman who owns Christmas and Then Some this morning. He said that live365.com, the streaming service that he ran his station on, is coming back. This could mean that his show could be back up and running very soon. I've got my fingers crossed!!!

    Also, for those of you who use Facebook, go to the Christmas and Then Some Facebook page and like it. The more likes and positive comments they get, the better their chances at getting really good sponsors for the station.

    Thanks!
