Have your say

Is everyone else loving the festive Christmas tunes this year?

Perhaps it was because I was abroad last year, or maybe I’m just an old softie who refuses to grow up.

But whatever it is, I’ve enjoyed listening to the Christmas tunes on the radio this time.

I’m still not bored of Mariah Carey singing All I Want For Christmas Is You – it’s such a classic!

I can’t say if this is true or not, but I’ve heard Mariah makes tens of thousands of pounds every year from radio airplays of this track alone.

My guess is it’s probably quite right – after all, the song is played all over the world and if you stick any radio station on at this time of year, you’re guaranteed to hear it at least four or five times a day.
