Usually known for classic hits, Sunny 102 is temporarily branding itself as “The Christmas Music Station,” playing wall-to-wall holiday hits since November 19. For the past several years, WZUN rolled out the Christmas tunes at the stroke of midnight on November 1, but — citing listener feedback — the station held-off until the opening of the annual “Lights on the Lake” event, for which Sunny 102 provides the “official” soundtrack.
