Christmas Special

8:00am - 12:00pm

Started with my usual peripatetic sojourn around Africa and then uncorked the seasonal spirits with new singles from Locarno, Nicki Bluhm, and Abigail & Bela. A few jaunty Xmas ditties, some wassails and solstice songs, and a feature on Cape Breton's wonderful Celtic quartet Coig, who play a Christmas show tonight on the Rogue website. Ended with my little nativity special!
