What is Christmas all about in this modern age? A rare day off work? A lifetime supply of brussels sprouts? A half-finished game of monopoly with your smelly Uncle Monty? For us penguins we gather some of our favourite musicians round a log fire in our hut to talk and sing about Christmas time. This is Arctic Circle Radio’s - Christmas Broadcast.
This year our guests are Jo Mango, The Beguilers and Ted Barnes (joined by Gill Sandell & Harriette Ashcroft) who talk about hiding under a table, eating Dad’s trifle and how a voice is like a flute. Alongside this, and most importantly, they sing specially written Christmas songs plus some covers of modern and classic winter melodies. Grab your Christmas jumper and press play…
