Aw Yeah, it's a New York Christmas, with your boy Huey delving into the depths of his record collection for the best festive records ever cut.

Our don of Sharing Is Caring - Michael Kiwanuka - bids us farewell but not before sharing another gem with you on this most special of days.

And, as 6 Music continues to celebrate all things vinyl, New York DJ Uncle Mike drops in with a very special Christmas present.
