QXFM’s ‘12 Days of Christmas’ allows area churches to present messages

Special to the Index

WEATHERFORD – For second consecutive year, the QXFM Radio Network is in the middle of its 12 Days of Christmas project, giving area churches an opportunity to present their Christmas message in words and music.  Each church can take up to one hour.

According to QXFM general manager Melinda Beard, the 12 Days of Christmas allows community involvement in community radio with something different for the Christmas season.

Participating churches are not only from the Mineral Wells and Weatherford areas, but also Granbury, Dennis, Aledo, Springtown, Gordon, and Eastland.

In addition, QXFM has taken at least one-third of the fee each church paid for their air time and donated to an area charity.  

This year, QXFM was able to “adopt” at least 18 children in need within its listening area, helping to make those kids’ Christmas a little brighter who otherwise might have little or nothing under their tree.  

Also, each of the 18 participating churches will be notified of the name of the child which QXFM has adopted in that church’s name.

The QXFM 12 Days of Christmas began on Dec. 9, airing at least one program each weekday, leading up to Christmas Eve.  Then starting at 6 p.m. Christmas Eve through 5 am Thursday morning Dec. 26, QXFM will repeat each church’s program twice.  

In addition, Monday the 23rd and earlier in the day Christmas Eve, four more area church’s “first run” programs will air as did other churches since Dec. 9.

For a listing of each day’s 12 Days of Christmas schedule, including the repeat airings beginning Christmas Eve at 6 p.m., log onto Facebook.com/QXFMRadio.

Every church’s 12 Days Of Christmas presentation will be simulcast over all of the QXFM stations which are: 89.5 KYQX Weatherford;  88.5 KMQX Mineral Wells;  89.1 KSQX Springtown;  91.1 KQXE Eastland. 

Streaming audio is available at qxfm.com/listen and on portable devices using the TuneIn radio app.

QXFM invites you to set your radio to one their stations or your PC to qxfm.com and spend Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and early Thursday morning with area churches.
