Kirsty Young presents a festive collection of stories and music from Your Desert Island Discs where listeners are the castaways. Kirsty and her studio guests - broadcaster and Radio 2 DJ Jo Whiley, comedian, actor and musician Bill Bailey and composer and conductor Debbie Wiseman - mull over the choices of Christmas and comedy songs. They'll also discuss some of the musical choices inspired by the castaways' stories from rock to reggae and Beethoven to the Bee Gees, and consider the enduring appeal of record sleeves and the pleasures of singing together.
