Driving home for Christmas

In a craven attempt to recapture the ghost of Christmas past, we reunite with the mighty Phill and Phil aka Messrs Jupitus and Wilding in their fancy Central London studio to record another festive four-way pod-off, entitled The Perfect Twelve, in which we ponder a dozen listener-supplied Christmas Questions and, in one case, nurse a post-Hairspray Christmas party hangover. The professional, mixed, balanced, equalised, topped, tailed and Andre-Vincent-jingle-festooned version is available from The Perfect Ten on iTunes – but if you prefer the longer (1hr 6m 35s), lo-fi, jingle-free, Collings & Herrin version, this is it. With extras. (Thanks to Jeanette for the tinsel-bedecked photo of us, taken in Brighton. We forgot to take a special one with P&P, due to intake of evil Vitamin Water.) God bless us every one.

There’ll be one more C&H podcast, available on December 31, that’s New Year’s Eve, and then we’re taking a break for two weeks, while Richard is on holiday. I, meanwhile, will be on 6 Music, working through the festive period like a nurse or taxi driver:

Tues-Weds, December 22-23, Steve Lamacq slot, 4-7pm
Mon-Thurs, December 28-31, Cerys/Nemone slot, 1-4pm
Mon-Fri, January 4-8, Cerys/Nemone slot, 1-4pm
Mon-Fri, January 11-15, Cerys/Nemone slot, 1-4pm

Tune in.

  1. Excellent! Downloading now. I understand the P&P version isn't out until 24th, so well done on pipping them to the post!Have a great Christmas and thanks for making us all laugh during 2009.Doug.

  2. Just went to Amazon to look up Phil Wilding's book and noticed that 'nyum nyum nyum' is an official Amazon tag – listed in the 'suggested tags for similar products' section under the review.Where to next? A listing in the Urban Dictionary?

  3. Sorry Andrew but the sound was so bad that I just couldn't enjoy this one. Still, thanks for all the great free stuff you've provided this year, hope you have a lovely holiday.
