GR 07-36 Xmas 2013

Welcome to GR’s Xmas 2013 show. We’ll leave the usual format today for a very special program. Though I’ve been doing this show since 1999, the first GR X-Mas Special didn’t appear until 2004. I don’t recall why that is, but I do remember, the first program began with Ini Kamoze’s tribute, ‘All I Want for Christmas.’

As holiday commemorations are all about tradition, I’ll continue ours. And of course, the longest tradition of all around here is the contributions made to the show over these many long years by Victoria Street Newz publisher, and CFUV Radio broadcaster in her own right, Janine Bandcroft who will, that stars being rightly aligned, join us at the bottom of the hour.

But first, friend Ini Kamoze…Take it, Ini!
