Already? Really?

kmart-layaway-angelsI saw a Spirit Halloween store sign pop up in early August.  So I’m not surprised we’re not even half way through September yet and we have our first Christmas commercial!  Kmart is running one for their layaway program.  And, because it’s what we do anymore, their social media pages were hammered by people complaining saying it’s too early…but is it? 12% of people supposedly start their holiday shopping before September, and 20% get going in October. That’s something to be admired. I sit up by the warm glow of my computer screen on December 23 looking for who’s making next day deliveries on Christmas Eve.

Brent Lee

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
