Tis The Season...

Gary was running late due to family business so I did the first half an hour in something of a weird mood. I had looked forward to this show as I didn't get a chance to do a Christmas Alternative last year, and the year before I did a Christmas Number One countdown, so I hadn't done a show in this style since my legendary show on Sherwood Radio.

Once Gary turned up it was business as usual; my plan to celebrate Christmas on alternate years, how annoying it is that the shops start Christmas in the summer, and Doctor Who got a mention as usual. This certainly wasn't ever going to be your conventional Christmas special.
