As played on The Far Side, Phantom 105.2, Tuesday December 16, 10pm-midnight

Last night was The Review of 2008 – Part One, the first in a couple of Far Side specials over the coming weeks on Phantom. Next Tuesday (December 23), it’s The Far Side Of Christmas, two hours of indiesyncratic festive tunes from Tom Waits to Wild Billy Childish and everything inbetween. If you want to heard weird versions of “Silent Night”, it’s the show for you. The following week, I’ll be on the air for two shows - The Review Of 2008 – Part Two (December 30, 10pm-midnight) and The Hidden Gems, AKA The Tunes That Got Away (December 29, 6pm-8pm).
