I have been looking forward to this show for some time now. For the third year, it’s time for a holiday special from TPN Rock. Yes, here we go with the Christmas Rocktacular for 2009.
Christmas music is a strange time for podcasters and music. We can’t officially play tracks like Fairytale of New York, and so much of Christmas music (certainly for me and my family) is based around feeling familiar, which provides an extra challenge when looking for new music. But hey, the last few weeks I’ve been nudging artists and bands to see what they have for this time of year and every one of them has stepped up with some fantastic music.
And when I sat down to record this show, there was a tiny kid inside me, who’s voice got steadily louder. Christmas is coming… Christmas is coming… Christmas is coming…
So start up the show, it’s time to let loose with my best approximation of Noddy Holder; “It’s Chrisssstttttmaaaasssssssss!!!”t
