So this is Christmas and what have we done?
Well, Invisible Folk Club worked hard producing 62 podcast episodes during 2018, now it's time for the seasonal special.
We are very fortunate indeed to have a number of songs that were recorded specially for our Christmas radio show. The theme was Christmas or Winter so the atmosphere is in turns celebratory, frosty, and sometimes rather dark. Many many thanks to the artists who contributed.
This podcast is a re-run of the 2018 Invisible Folk Club Christmas radio show plus the added bonus of a knockabout 'Afterparty' that kicked-off when tapes were left rolling after the live broadcast had finished. In a moment of spontaneous combustion DJ Jon Bickley reeled off a whole bunch of Christmas oldies from when your parents were young. A mighty fine time is guaranteed. We hope you enjoy the sleigh ride!
