Do you hear what I hear?

Would you believe four stations are Christmas-sing this holiday season.

Would you believe four stations are Christmas-sing this holiday season.

Now 97.5 went to all-yule first, followed by B101. Then WHAT (1340), the standards station, pulled the switch.

At 6 a.m. Wednesday, WOGL (98.1) will go all-Christmas, calling itself "Philadelphia's Christmas Classic Station" (for which CBS bought a service mark). Program director Anne Gress explains: "We'll play the songs you remember hearing as a kid growing up in Philly. So, sorry, no En Vogue covers of 'Silent Night.' Instead, it's Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. Only the best of the best stuff."

WOGL also will add excerpts between songs from classic Christmas TV shows and movies, such as Linus telling the true meaning of Christmas and when Santa asks Rudolph to guide his sleigh.

Silent Night, hah.
