Happy Christmas Hoxton Live!
What a merry brigade of music for your special ears at this the most wonderful time of the year.
Two Merry Special Interviews in the show also:
The Joy Formidable's Ritzy joins us for a chat and BBC Sound of 2012 nominee's Friends - Sam also in conversation recorded at Hoxton Bar and Grill in September.
We'll spin their amazing new single 'Friend Crush' and details of the up and coming London shows in February at XOYO & Lexington.
Continuing with 2011's *sound shapes* - the songs that've shaped your smiles this year like Cold War Kids, Yuck, Anna Calvi an the aptly festive Sleigh Bells.
