‘It was never supposed to make that noise’

Towards the Point?- Series Two Xmas Show 2012

January 6th, 2013

In this festive pot of culture we consider the nature of Christmas song and film, the idea of a black Christmas, get lost in Outsider Art and there's an interview with Brooks Williams & Boo Hewerdine as they stop off in "State of the Union" mode.

This show was first broadcast on Monday 24th December 2012.

"Towards the Point?" is a King of the Buttons production for 93.7 Express FM, presented by James Sandy, Simon Mobbs & Dave Allen.
