Download (right-click & save as) It’s Christmas! This cracker of a show is packed with Christmas songs from UK independent artists (plus a couple from the US and one from Oz) - songs you’re not sick of, unike the usual festive fare blasted at you by every mainstream commercial station on TV & Radio and on the PA in every shop in your local mall and high street. It also has jokes from sparkling co-host of the show, crown princess of comedy Niamh Lynn-Devere.
Next week’s show will be a ‘best of 2011’ Special, on the last Tuesday of the year. I’ll be playing all my favourites of the artists I played on the show during 2011, but I’m open to listener suggestions - leave a comment here or on the facebook page for the show.
There’s no poetry segment in this week’s show but - drum roll - there’s a new monthly poetry show called ‘Ode to Nowhere’ starting right here on Gashouse Radio in January 2012. English poet Simon Smith will be along for a chat about all things poetical in the first edition of the show, there’ll be guest readings from Joe & Bliss of The Blissful Mop, we’ve got digital beat poetry from Poet and the Loops and contemporary spoken word tracks from To love Sophia, as well as a host of other exciting contemporary poetry from unpublished or less than widely known poets.
In the meantime -
Sunshinecast Episode 27 - Getting Jingly With It
Podcast (made to replace the technical glitch afflicted live show broadcast on Gashouse Radio on Tuesday 13th November) aired on Saturday 17th December 2011, 1 - 3pm Eastern/6pm UK.
This show is full of new tunes from UK independent artists and more than a few Christmas songs to get that tingly, jingly feeling started. Next week’s show will be non-stop Christmas and party tunes from independent artists. If you’re looking for Christmas party music and you’re bored of the same old Christmas numbers that get played to death on mainstream radio and TV and in shops, year after year, you’ll want to take a listen to the show, this week and next week.
