The world's favorite Christmas radio station airing annually from November 1st through January 1st... that's us: Tinsel & Tunes.

We take Christmas music seriously. It’s our belief there are too many cheesy Christmas songs and you deserve the best mix during the holidays. If you’re like us, you love Christmas but it is too often interrupted with #badchristmasmusic.

We promise to deliver the absolute best mix of Christmas songs, without the cheese.

Be sure to download our companion APPLE TV app, complete with a roaring fire!

The completely digital broadcast originates from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and is heard annually in more than 80 countries by over 1.5 million people. Tune in to "Christmas Cocktails" every Friday night from 8pm - 1am EST for groovy, remixed classics setting the perfect mood for holiday parties.

Tinsel & Tunes is an award-winning, commercial-free labor of love that has been featured in Better Homes & Gardens. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays.

What’s New

Version 4.1.0

Hello fellow Christmas music lover. We've decided to do a small refresh in anticipation of our 14th season!

The app itself works exactly as it did with last year's update, however, a few areas got a new coat of paint and we also upgraded from shag carpeting to hardwood floors.

Lots of people are upgrading their phones to the beautiful new OLED screens, so we wanted to help with battery life. Darker screens mean less power is being used, so we flipped the switch from bright white to muted gray to help save some energy. We did a few small tweaks that won't affect how you use or listen to the app, but trust us, they help make it better!

Lastly, we went through a slight re-brand after last season, so we updated our look a little bit too.

Once again, we asked the apps team at Apple if we could introduce new technology to dispense hot cocoa from your phone, but they felt it still needed some work. Maybe next year?

Don't forget to check out our companion Apple TV app complete with crackling fire! It's in the iOS store as we speak.

Ho Ho Ho.

Hey there Logan!

We certainly appreciate your 4 star rating and feedback, especially all of the emojis. :) Our station is more traditional in nature, where you can't skip songs you may not prefer (and we try hard to not play songs you won't like, but we can't please everyone all the time). In this day and age, we understand that being able to have complete control over your music is becoming the norm and while we have no problem with that, our format is just a bit different.

A lot of our listeners appreciate just being able to turn on the radio and let it play - much like you would do with satellite radio or your local AM/FM station.

There are certainly plenty of apps that allow you the control you desire and we would suggest using one of those. However, if you enjoy our mix of music we'll always be here for you and you can tune out whenever you want.

Thanks again, Logan, for your suggestion! We hope you had a Merry Christmas.
