The Christmas carols are coming.
Every year, at least one radio station in the Triangle converts to playing all holiday tunes -- 24/7 of Rudolph, Feliz Navidad and White Christmas.
This year, WRAL-FM plans to make the switch on Nov. 26. That's the day after Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday and treasured by eager retailers as the traditional kickoff to the holiday shopping season.
That's later than last year, and WRAL (101.5) might do it sooner if a rival radio station jumps in, said program director Barry Fox. In the meantime, WRAL started streaming Christmas music from its website this week.
