With just under five weeks until Christmas, the jingle bells are starting to play around town, and on one of Vancouver’s biggest radio stations.
As of Friday morning, 103.5 QM/FM has switched to “ALL Christmas, ALL the time”. The Bell Media station has rebranded itself for Christmas for the past four years, making it the only Christmas music station in the city.
103.5 QM/FM is Vancouver’s Christmas Music Station! Playing ALL Christmas ALL the time! Tune in now #QMFMXMAS
