It’s that seasonal fulcrum when we all start counting the days until Christmas Day.
7-6-5-4-3-2-1.. Comes The Day.
For a child, it’s pure magic!
These two hours are intended for the child in all of us. Embrace the season, remind those you love that you love them. Reconnect with family and friends.
A week from today Christmas Day arrives like an old friend.
This Saturday – the 18th – is two hours of music. Songs and artists were chosen for their passion and honesty.
We start with Ben Harper and the Soweto Gospel Choir singing Coldplay’s Fix You.
Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, Fleet Foxes, Calexico, John Prine, Joni, Emmylou, Alan Doyle, Blue Rodeo, Tom Petty, Aretha, Darlene Love, The Reverend Shawn Amos and the wonderful piano of Bill Sample and many more.
And on Christmas Day ..music to get you through meal prep and the first-ever replay of a 2015 Christmas in the Round. Sharing songs and stories are Barney Bentall, Shari Ulrich, Roy Forbes, Craig Northey, Jim Byrnes, and Shaun Verreault from Wide Mouth Mason. All together in the same room. Singing, playing and remembering past Christmas’.
The New Years Day show will be laying the best tracks of the year plus classics I know you like. The Mulligan Stew Podcast on New Year’s Eve will be Rick Mercer, talking about his memoir Talking to Canadians.
