It proved much easier than expected to put together this mix of Irish acts getting in the Christmas spirit, through covers or indeed original tracks – an original Christmas song in the mid-20=teens!?! I know! It’s 14 tracks long and could’ve been at least four tracks longer, but it was a little impromptu and kind of on a whim – I should’ve been in the gym but got distracted putting the mix together. I’m hopefully going to do more mixes and radio show-type things in 2016 – no, it won’t be new Christmas songs every week, which I presume would be close to impossible and potentially maddening. It’ll be new Irish music mixed with classics and stuff like that. That’s the plan, anyway, so make sure you follow me on Mixcloud to ensure you don’t miss out. Soundcloud and iTunes will only be for podcasts. That’s the plan, anyway…
