ExileFM's Xmas Extravaganza

December 18, 2017 - 64 views

We're celebrating our first holiday season at ExileFM with an irreverently non-denominational "Xmas Special" featuring continuous broadcasting from 16:00 GMT on December 25th, 2017.  Thanks to Zero and his scheduling wizardry, those who have pre-recorded and those who will be with you live, this is what you'll get for being good:

16:00-18:00 - So you've stuffed the stuffing, gobbled all the turkey up and pulled the crackers. The dishwasher's loaded, grandad's snoring on the sofa and you're still wearing that silly hat...
Once you've taken that black bag of wrapping paper outside in your new slippers, it's time to pour yourself something nice and escape the Christmas afternoon stupor by tuning into ExileFM for Martin Haskell's 'Great Escape' - two hours of great music featuring a few seasonal numbers that you're not sick of hearing, a few Christmas facts, and a trip to the North Pole...

18:00-21:00 - For a change, Zero has been digging through his non-seven inch vinyl collection: through the albums, the twelves, the tens - and any other size that isn't seven inch - to bring you three hours of Vinyl Overindulgence. No Christmas tunes and minimal chat - just tons of incredibly varied great music

21:00-23:00 - The Monday Night Sleigh-ride will help you digest the day's festivities from the comfort of a padded seat and with all the bells jingling. Ming and Jon will be broadcasting live with all the usual features, plus maybe a holiday themed tune or two (if nobody else has nabbed all the John Waters tracks).

23:00-"the small hours" - Balou's Yule Special will feature lots of yo-ho-ho-ing, roasted possums, winter warmers and surprise guests, in an open-ended live show that just doesn't know when to stop....
