The more observant of you may have noticed that 25th December falls on a Tuesday this year. And that my radio show, Empty Space, is also broadcast on a Tuesday.
Next Tuesday I will in the studio as usual, broadcasting across Sheffield and the world. But as Christmas is all about spending time with your family, I’ll be dragging my wife and kids along with me.
I’ll be playing a bit of dark folk and quirky pop. Gill will probably play some songs by ladies with beautiful voices, plus a bit of Ooberman. Lola will, no doubt, want to give her new Pop Party 5 CD a spin. And Rowan will be sitting in the corner refusing to communicate.
Alongside any family dramas, we’ll also have a short radio play, a special localised adaptation of William S. Burroughs’ “The Junky’s Christmas”.
All this, plus mulled wine, mince pies, unwrapping of presents, and perhaps the odd family spat.
We’ll be on, as ever, from 10am until midday, so why not listen in while you’re stuffing the turkey (or roasting your nuts). It’s on 93.2FM and www.sheffieldlive.org
