It’s Christmas on HRB!

Christmas Crackers, Requests, special guests and the return of The BIG Broadcast are all part of HRB’s line-up for Christmas and New Year 2020.

The schedule starts on December 13th with over 4 hours of fast moving festive fun in Neil Ogden’s Sound of Sunday Big Christmas Show. It’s not quite as big as usual this year but the annual Great Christmas Cracker Dash will go ahead with the residents and staff of St Thomas Care home in Basingstoke. There will also be the reveal of the 112,000th request played on HRB.

There will be live request shows throughout the holiday period, including Christmas Day and Boxing Day, making sure that HRB continues to play the music our listeners want to hear.

As well as request shows, there are plenty of other programmes of interest.

In the month of what would have been his 90th birthday, Matt Monro’s daughter Michele presents a major new 4-part documentary about the singer.

The stars come out for a special concert to celebrate the work of MacMillan’s Cancer Support.

And there’s another chance to hear our Queen and Led Zeppelin specials.

Richard Smith plays plenty of Christmas music from each decade from the 60s onwards in special editions of The A to Z of Pop and returns with his team on 31 December for the annual BIG Broadcast.

There’s special festive editions of many of our regular shows such as Vinyl Impressions, After Hours, The Sound of Country and The Retro Radio Show.

Andy McCormick presents his annual Christmas Day Postcard from New Zealand and Vernon Pearce presents his festive Postcard From Spain.
Neil Ogden will count down the most requested artists of 2020, and Keith Graham tells the Story of Disco in a special 4 part series.
