BEST COUNTRY RADIO STATION Phoenix 2003 - KNIX-FM 102.5

KNIX-FM is Clear Channel Communications' local holding in country radio, which isn't exactly the sexiest distinction these days. But Phoenix is a long-standing C&W stronghold with a tradition that stretches back to Marty Robbins, Waylon Jennings and friendly frequent visitor Buck Owens. And the folks at KNIX reflect a devotion to the music you would subsequently expect. While the station does play the rising hits as prescribed by Nashville, it finds time to slip in aging pop-country warriors Alabama and once-untouchable superstar Randy Travis, whose recent "Pray for the Fish" is a bona fide oddity that seems incongruent with the Faith Hill/Lee Ann Womack/Pam Tillis set. The station's friendliness to the artists who keep country grounded in its honky-tonk roots is commendable, as is the amusingly redneck but civil tone of morning jocks Tim & Willy.

I have a question: Who sings the song Christmas Carol, about a little girl that wants a home for Christmas here are the words:Christmas Carol

by N/AI was playin' Santa Claus downtown on Christmas Eve,When a little girl of three or four climbed up on to my knee.I could tell she had a Christmas wish behind those eyes of blue,So I asked her: "What's your name an' what can Santa get for you?"

She said: "My name is Christmas Carol, I was born on Christmas day."I don't know who my Daddy is an Mummy's gone away."All I want for Christmas is someone to take me home."Does anybody want a Christmas Carol of their own."

Well all that I could say was Santa'd do the best he could,An' I sat her down and told her: "Now remember to be good."She said: "I will", then walked away; turned an' waved goodbye,An' I'm glad she wasn't close enough to see ol' Santa cry.

She said: "My name is Christmas Carol, I was born on Christmas day."I don't know who my Daddy is an Mummy's gone away."All I want for Christmas is someone to take me home."Does anybody want a Christmas Carol of their own."

Instrumental Break.

Early Christmas mornin', I got up an' dialed the 'phone,An' made a few arrangements with the County Children's Home.They told me it would be all right, to pick her today:Now my little Christmas Carol won't ever have to say:

"My name is Christmas Carol, I was born on Christmas day."I don't know who my Daddy is an Mummy's gone away."All I want for Christmas is someone to take me home."Does anybody want a Christmas Carol of their own."

Well, Merry Christmas, Carol,I love you: welcome home!

Please let me know who sings the song. Thank You

My Name is Lauren & I was wondering if u would b kind enough 2 play a song 4 my fiance Travis Rodgers. It all started on Sept. 5th when I recieved & e-mail from him indicating that he was in the hospital 4 quite some time. He suffered serious injuries. His injuries inculded a cracked jaw, 6 broken ribs, & a fractured hand. He recived all of these Injuries from someone in a street racer car that weren't l0oking as 2 where they were going. I was on pins & needles when I recieved this e-mail. Travis is now going through his physical therapy. He says that it's been a long & painful raod but now he's finally getting better if u would b so kind as 2 play a song 4 Travis i'm sure that would make his day. The song that I would like 2 hear (if u have it that is would b) SWING BATTER BATTER SWING by Trace Adkins
