posted on December 16th, 2015

Here’s the playlist for Midnight Campfire #69 my final programme of 2015, first broadcast Wed 16 Dec on Juice 107.2. It’s a mellow festive episode; aims to be a decent soundtrack for whatever you’re doing. The first hour is a ‘winter’ playlist, then the second hour is more specifically a ‘Christmas’ playlist.
