December Is Here Before It’s June … My Goodness How the Time Has Flewn
“How did it get so late so soon?
Its night before its afternoon.
December is here before its June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?” - Dr. Seuss
“Oh, what a night, late December back in ’63,
What a very special time for me. As I remember, what a night!”
(Bob Gaudio [of the Four Seasons], and Judy Parker)

Chappell’s Christmas tune, "Another Christmas Song" was chosen for the Dec. 16 play list on Women of Substance radio, Bree Noble is the WOS Founder & CEO. Chappell was really surprised that it was accepted since it was rejected last year.Here is the link to the lists. Other FAR-Westers on the list: Terry Holder and Laura Zucker.
When Will Her Song Be Played? Here's how it works. They will be playing continuous Holiday music from November 27 - December 25. Chappell’s song will be included in the continuous mix which means many plays throughout the month (a random mix of all the Holiday music on the playlists). Then on the specific day, December 16, that will be listed on the playlist page, her song will be "featured" and will air at noon and 8 PM Eastern (9 & 5 PM Pacific). There will also be a Podcast episode to be announced in a few weeks.
