Dear Listeners, 

Ho ho ho

This is Rock And Roll Radio!


A few months ago Nathaniel and Luke asked if they could do a Christmas-themed show on Rock And Roll Radio. My initial response was, "I don't know, I don't really like Christmas music".  But, as you know, or perhaps as you don't know, Rock And Roll Radio is not about me, it is about what you, the people.

"Don't be a grinch, Casey!" 
"Don't be a Scrooge, Casey!" 
"There is good Christmas music out there!"

So here you have it, two hours of Christmas programming care of Luke "The Wild Man" Forster, a frequent guest on the show, and Nat King Dole The Christmas Skinhead in his debut appearance. Luke provides a handful of gems off the top. Nat King Dole follows through with three balanced sets of Glam, Soul and Punk, proving his unrelenting passion for Christmas holiday magic. 

Expect a delay in Rock And Roll Radio email updates for the next month or so. I will be in Brazil! But that doesn't mean I am letting this place go to seed. The show must go on! The next four episodes of Rock And Roll Radio have been recorded live to tape, presented as sonic time capsules for your listening enjoyment.
