Sounds of Eighty Six Christmas Message with Rob Bright

The season of goodwill is upon us! and what better way to get you through this time of year than two hours' in the company of the Governor.  

As has become somewhat of an Eighty Six tradition, we've handed the show over to Rob to deliver his Christmas message to the nation.

There was a public outcry (with strongly worded letters from Abigail Ward of Manchester and Rob Smith of London) at the failure to do a show last year. So we made sure we did one this year. For fans of bells, ladies singing, incoherence, longing, winter nights, the motorik beat, drink, brief moments of beauty and Satan. Merry Christmas and enjoy the show.

  1. Happy New Year Jeff

    I´m looking forward to 2015 finally tuned in to sounds from eight six!

    Sure I´ll enjoy them almost as much as that smacker roonie you gave me on your departure from Leeds.

    Hope to see you over here this year
