Well, I did warn you! The Official Branle (aka Ding Dong Merrily on High) didn't get made TOTM this month, and as an inevitable and unavoidable consequence, this month goes all festive again with the return of the Christmas and winter tunes theme.

It is December... and we will be festive!

Cheers,

Clive

Lovely - I shall probably trot out Deck the Halls aka Nos Galan when I can get a moment at home to play it.

Don't think so - Jona Lewie was born John Lewis in Southampton in 1947; Wreckless Eric was born Eric Goulden in Newhaven in 1954.
