      Why do you keep repeating the same movies. White Christmas is one of the most popular Christmas movies ever made. The song sold more records than any other Christmas song.

    Not sure who the program director is now, but they need to do better. Lineup is terribly disappointing.

    I totally agree. I can’t believe what they have left out! Holiday Inn is one of my favorites. What a bummer. Their programming director should be fired.

    I concur with much of what’s been here posted already….where are our favorites…Miracle on 34th Street (no, never the modern one – just the O’Hara/Wood original), Holiday Inn, It’s a Wonderful Life…please play those many times….and can we please see The Bishop’s Wife more than once in Mid-November?! as well as A Christmas Carol with Sim.

    Also, I agree with one viewer who asked for some kid content….old Christmas cartoons…that would be swell!
