Salvation Army Helps 93.9 LITE FM Make Christmas Music Flip
Yesterday, The Salvation Army once again sponsored the 93.9 LITE FM Christmas music flip, a beloved holiday tradition. At 4:05 p.m., 93.9 LITE FM personalities Melissa Forman, Robin Rock, Mick Lee, and mascot Edison the Reindeer hit the button to transform the station’s playlist to all Christmas music through the end of the year.
“This year marks our 21st celebration as Chicago’s Christmas music station,” said Mick Lee, the station’s Program Director and afternoon show host. “93.9 LITE FM is ready to spread holiday cheer, joy, and hope across Chicagoland by playing everyone’s favorite Christmas tunes.”
The first song after the flip, always a subject of much speculation, was “All I Want for Christmas” by Mariah Carey.
The Salvation Army’s Captain Xavier Montenegro was also in the control room for the switch, telling Mick Lee, “Just like you all are providing holiday spirit during this season, we’re trying to do the same thing by providing hope for needy families.”
Captain Xavier also mentioned that the Army’s Christmas fundraising season shifts into high gear this coming Monday, November 8, when our Red Kettles make their seasonal debut throughout Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
Seventy percent of the Army’s donations for the entire year are received during the Christmas season, and those funds are especially vital this year as millions of Americans are still experiencing the ongoing impacts of the pandemic as they struggle to recover and stay in their homes. Donations to the Army ensure that Hope Marches On for our neighbors in need.
