Stewart Lee’s Christmas stint as guest editor continues as he’s joined by fellow comedian and left-field music fan Tim Key.

As a Russian graduate, Key often features unusual Soviet-era music in his live shows, from Vyacheslav Mescherin’s Ensemble of Electronic Musical Instruments, to composer Mikael Tariverdiev, a recent discovery that can be heard in his latest show ‘Megadate’.

Key brings in some of his most treasured tracks; Lee introduces him to some of his own collection too.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.
