Elton John – The Fall – Nick Lowe – Elastica – Low – Christmas Sessions At The BBC- Past Daily Soundbooth: Holiday Edition
Elton John et al. Christmas Sessions at BBC 6 Music – Various Dates – BBC 6 Music –
Okay – the last Christmas post we’re doing until 2019 – this one is worth the exception. A full hour extravaganza of sessions recorded at BBC 6 Music by a veritable galaxy of Rock notables. From Elton John, Nick Lowe, Elastica, Half Man-Half Biscuit, The Decembrists, Frank Turner, Low, Snow Patrol, Smoke Fairies, George Ezra and so many more. All in sessions going back some 10+ years and all having something to do with Christmas.
Perfect – and a lot of Christmas music I haven’t heard before by a lot of artists you may not be all that familiar with.
It’s all hosted by Chris Hawkins, who normally hosts the 6 Music Live Hour and it was originally broadcast on this past Christmas Eve. But rather than hold on to it for a whole year, I thought I would share this with you, since it’s pretty much party season until next week when 2019 rolls around, and a little raucous music for the season never hurt anybody.
So – crank it up and keep the party going.
We’ll return to our regular programming shortly. In the meantime . . . .
