A merry Christmas to all, and a brief reminder of a classic return to form from Peel alumni Andy Kershaw. After his well-publicised public meltdown and brushes with his ex-partner and restraining orders, he found a new home on Radio 3, co-hosting Music Planet with Lucy Duran. As is commonplace with Kershaw, he took any risks necessary in order to bring world music to the masses, including nearly being burned alive at a rocket festival in Thailand. So, if your idea of an ideal accompaniment to mince pies and turkey (and turkey….and turkey….and turkey, “a loaf of bread with wings”, as John Walters memorably described it) is listening to the Bat People of Papua New Guinea or shaman in Mongolia, here’s your chance to download all eight radio episodes.
