Wavelength – Christmas Part One

The next three programmes are all devoted to Christmas music, some of which is strange, some of it downright morbid and some which is hopefully uplifting. Today’s track list: Joy to the World by M.V. Mathews from the 1962 LP Music from Mathematics played by IBM 7090 computer and digital to sound transducer; Xmas 1952 by Karen Kato from I.D. Art Number 2 (Paradigm Discs 2007); 3 tracks from the series Blues, Blues Christmas including Death might be your Santa Claus by Rev.J.M. Gates followed by 3 tracks in a lighter vein; Everybody’s gone Christmas by Sandra Tavernier and Steve Beresford from Joyeux Noel on Nato; Silver Bells by Moon Duo (45rpm single on Holy Mountain) and finally Just like Christmas by Low.
