Owing to popular demand, the massively expanded edition of Is This Christmas Music? – a collection of columns in which I take a freewheeling look at some of the best and worst Christmas records ever made, interspersed with reminiscences about everything from Midnight Mass to festively-themed adverts for Dairy Box – is now available in print. If you read the original columns, this new version has nearly two hundred new footnotes with all manner of deeply strange new retro-tinged material, and a couple of similarly expanded ‘Stocking Fillers’ in the form of bonus columns about trying to find out the name of a one-off Christmas Special with Cliff Richard in, why you should never subject a Val Doonican show to rigorous historical analysis, and what I wanted for Christmas in 1986… get it here!
Stocking Fillers is a brand new mini-eBook by me, featuring some old Christmas-themed pieces given a new dash of tinsel and positively groaning under the weight of brand spanking new footnotes. Within its pages you can find out:
…what I wanted for Christmas in 1986
…why I became obsessed with finding out the name of a mysterious Christmas Special featuring Cliff Richard
… and more trivia about a Val Doonican Christmas Eve show than is surely permissible under international health agreements!
