I ,too, am leaning in the direction of Rick and GoodOldDreams. If the music heard is not a personal choice, but a predetermined pick, then it should count toward the Carpenters log when they play Carpenters Christmas songs.
You three have made the point well, so as of now the log will be modified to include Carpenters songs heard at stores, etc. I didn't know that all the Home Depots (for instance) were on the same music system. Next time there is a tabulation it will include the "Merry Christmas Darling" Rick heard at Home Depot (in addition to the one heard on the way to work) as well as the report by WJ7. If anyone has heard other songs in stores this season, feel free to retropost the titles and numbers of times heard and they will be counted. Thanks for the improvement to the log. O.E.
As of 1320 Pacific Time, Monday 20 November: Marry Christmas Darling-24, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas-17, Christmas Song-16, Home For The Holidays-4, I'll Be Home For Christmas-2, Christmas Waltz-2, Sleigh Ride-1
I am very excited- I finally have a contribution to the log, having heard "Merry Christmas Darling" on the radio on Nov.21. Here is the tabulation as of 1427 Pacific time, 22 Nov., 2006. (I apologize for accidentally leaving "Do You Hear What I Hear" of the most recent list.)
Merry Christmas Darling- 34 Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas- 18 Christmas Song- 18 Home For The Holidays- 5 Sleigh Ride- 3 Do You Hear What I Hear- 3 I'll Be Home For Christmas- 2 The Christmas Waltz- 2 White Christmas- 1

This is what I've heard on the 23rd and 24th:
Merry Christmas Darling - 5 times (they're playing this one like crazy again)
The Christmas Waltz - 1 time
Home For The Holdays - 1 time
I've been channel surfing specifically looking for Christmas music on the radio - so my listenings are between four or five different radio stations - I'm not quite sure which station is which - but they are now really starting to play Christmas music here in good old Southern California.

For November 23-25:
Merry Christmas Darling x 12 The Christmas Song x 7 Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas x 12 Sleigh Ride x 6 I'll Be Home For Christmas x 2 Do You Hear What I Hear ? x 2
This is the result of leaving the radio on as background during the prep and participation of Thanksgiving festivities ... and hours and hours of car travel. I still have tomorrow to travel, so who knows what type of numbers will happen!
