MEMORY TAPES: 16TH DECEMBER 2011
This week's Memory Tape supplier is Kim Chistie Ostberg who's gone all Christmasy. She writes...
"I have a relatively recent, very festive memory "tape" well, more playlist, as it has never been on either tape or CD but a downloadable memento of something never to meant to be.
"I love Christmas and this playlist made me love it even more. I have, and still do, play it relentlessly every year from the 1st Dec til long past the appropriate point that Christmas tunes should no longer be played.
"It's a mixture of memories that I have added to as I have picked up new and wonderful Christmas tunes over the past few years from friends and loved ones. At the end of the day it is a string of memories sewn together that I have collected from several people, but with the basis coming from a person who is dearly loved.
"The original was more or less compiled of the funny songs on the mix, and maybe a few of the slightly more melancholic ones too. Anyway, it opened my eyes to a whole new world of Christmas music and showed me there was more to it than just Christmas time by Slade!!!"
