Sunday Bandstand 13 December 2020

This week's show is Christmas music from over a dozen bands based overseas and just a few of the best home grown bands here in the UK. Some of the music you will have heard before but I am sure some of the pieces you may be hearing for the first time.
If you have a favourite piece of Christmas music or a favourite carol please contact me by email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I would be pleased to play it for you...
