Ho Ho Ho and a Merry Christmas. Hebden Radio asked us to do a bonus show on Christmas day and we were more than happy to oblige. Full of great festive songs and some truly awful riddles (puns). We share Christmas memories (some were Paul’s and some weren’t) but most of all we bring good cheer and best wishes.
