Getting a tad festive as kicking off show #56 are Xmas songs courtesy of Mountain Firework Company and Ange Hardy.
Then it is time for part 1 of a special playing songs from some awesome albums of 2015. First up is Tom McRae & The Standing Band with a kind of Xmas song of their own before we get a little bit Doorsy with those Latvian lads Carnival Youth.
Officer laments about being unable to break that Glass Ceiling while One Cure For Man astounds with Sleep Prince followed by a bostin (local lingo/dialect) bluesy number from the Luke Jackson Trio. Then a song from each of three albums I’ve only just got myself, by JR Richards, Daniel Pearson and Fabian Holland.
I’m sharing a third and final track from Sam Kelly’s The Lost Boys before Stornoway harmonise us to heaven with Josephine. We can only be hugely thankful to The Unthanks before Gretchen Peters carries us off with a Blackbirds reprise.
Lots more coming up in part 2…
