As I've said before earlier this year I hosted an Americana/Roots radio show on local Community Radio Station - Hive; based in Jarrow, Tyneside, England.
The original concept was based around local Americana and Roots music promoters The Jumping Hot Club's gig guide; but anyone who has read my reviews will know I have a very eclectic musical taste; so boundaries were pushed in all directions - giving me a large and loyal following.
The playlist is a mad mix of traditional and exclusive songs recorded especially for the show by an assortment of artists that will bring a smile to the faces of No Depression readers.
So....depending on your faith; Seasons Greetings/Merry Christmas/Joyeaux Noel
