XHM #243 - "Surrender to the relentless holiday rhythms" (2014 December 15)

7:00pm - 9:00pm

Yuletide is upon us yet again, so for this annual festive tradition, it's time to curl up around the fire and listen to Ryuichi Sakamoto's score to 1983's Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence.

Not so much on the informative chatter, but you did get a guest appearance from Val Cormier, hostess of the Folk Oasis (Wed 8-10pm on CITR.ca Pacific).
