Rogue Folk Club Artistic Director Steve Edge, in the studios of CiTR. Note the Manchester United cap!

Saturday December 22, 2007

This is one of my favourite shows of the year, and takes a lot of preparation. The biggest job is eliminating at least 100 songs from the available choices! A big "Thank you" to fellow CiTR DJ Paul Norton for his annual Christmas Corral samplers, containing weird and wonderful - and often rather obscure - Christmas songs. Finding the correct record label is challenging, but worth it!
