Universal Language radio show 18/12: Rob Bright's Alternative Christmas Message

For our final show of the year we had the privilege of being joined down in the basement by Rob Bright. Rob was such a great guest when he visited us earlier this year that we wanted to hand the entire show over to him.

With this in mind and after some hesitation, Rob agreed to do a 'Christmas Special'. So on the last weekend before Christmas Rob arrived (not down the chimney but in Jeff's car) armed with records a laptop loaded with film clips and some of his own M.I.N.S edits and delivered an alternative Christmas Special.
