Roger Royle presents your favourite Christmas music.

It's become quite a Radio 2 tradition to herald in Christmas Day with Canon Roger Royle and a selection of traditional carols and festive favourites. As Roger says - For over 30 years I have spent part of Christmas Day with Radio 2 listeners. So without them, Christmas just wouldn't be the same.
