Festive fun...

Bryan Burnett | 19:41 UK time, Thursday, 17 December 2009

bbchristmas.jpgYou'll notice that there are not four but five shows this week! That's because we have got an extra show on Christmas Day. I'll be live in the studio playing your festive favourites and trying to get through as many of your Christmas greetings as I can. DO get in touch with your suggestions of the prefect songs for the most wonderful day of the year. Miss Babs has talked me into taking time out from cooking the turkey to come to work so I've insisted that she produce - as long as she brings a tray of Delia's sausage rolls. I've also banned her from the sherry till after mid-day so it should all run smoothly...
Thanks to everyone who has suggested songs and even themes for Christmas. I got a lovely letter from Roger in Uddingston with his idea which celebrates the Bandaid single by featuring the original artists in the order they appear on the single.  Basically the idea would be to play Do They Know It's Christmas as the first song, then the second song would be Paul Young, then a song by Boy George and so on.  Everyone in the office likes the idea and we were thinking that we could turn it into a mega theme to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Liveaid?  I also wonder if there's a way to incorporate it into our other festive shows? Thinking caps ( or Santa hats) on everyone...


Monday 21st
It's the winter solstice - so we'll be marking the shortest day with songs about the night. As the daylight disappears then gather round the radio and give me your suggestions. From Dancing in the Dark to Midnight in Moscow. It's two hours of Night Fever on Get It On...

Tuesday 22nd
A new survey has revealed that the most murdered songs at the karaoke are Waterloo, Bohemian Rhapsody and My Way. What did you hear murdered and by who? It's my job to investigate so get in touch with the guilty parties. Was there a not so Sweet Caroline at your office party or was your best mate killing you softly with his song? Hear the original and best versions on Tuesday...

Wed 23rd
At this time of year our thoughts turn to our families and blood is thicker than water on tonight's show. Is there No-one Quite Like Grandma, is Little Sister your top choice or does your family have a perfect cousin? Get in touch and let me know...

Christmas Eve
Here's an idea for what should be a really nice show for Christmas Eve. Is there anybody you want to thank this year and what song would you like for them? Maybe it's a supportive partner or loved one who has been there for you when times weren't so good? Someone at work who has helped you out when things got on top of you? Or maybe you just want to keep in mum and dad's good books!! Forget leaving out a mince pie and a carrot for the reindeer the only way to say thank you is by asking for a song on Christmas Eve...

Christmas Day
And finally there's a special edition of Get It On On Christmas day at midday. We're live and I want to play all of your festive favourites - from Santa Baby to Silent Night. Let me know about the tunes that you'd like to hear as you are cooking the turkey and preparing the feast. Get it on for Christmas day by emailing or why not text in during the show...
