What’s on ‘Built For Speed’, Friday 16th December 2016

Christmas is almost upon us and as renowned purveyors of festive cheer, ‘Built For Speed’ will, this week , treat listeners to some of our favourite Christmas songs. They may not be the ones you’ll hear on carols nights or on mind-numbing repeat at your supermarket but they’re guaranteed to do what Christmas music should do and that’s rock.  We’ll also play some tracks that just missed out on the coveted playlist for our ‘Best of 2016’ show (Friday 23rd December) and we’ll hear our final instalment in the ‘Best songs of the millennium’ segment.  On the movie front we’ll talk about the film of the moment ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ and seasonal raunch comedy ‘Office Christmas Party’.  Don’t forget our regular preview of gigs and TV for the week.  Check out ‘Built For Speed’, Friday 8-10pm on 88.3 Southern FM.
