Annual Xmas Special

8:00am - 12:00pm

Pre-recorded Christmas Special as I was en route to Rarotonga when the show was being broadcast. Featured many of my favourite seasonal selections, some new ones from Blind Raccoon records, and Paul Norton's latest compilation (Sun-Drenched Christmas), plus the annual ritual with The Pogues / Monty Python / Steeleye Span segue to Loreena McKennitt's God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
