Christmas carols are truly in the air at Radio NOVA in the run up to Christmas as the station opens its doors to numerous well-known bands to come onto its Morning Glory breakfast show to perform acoustic versions of well-known carols and Christmas songs
Bands involved include The 4 of Us, The Devlins, Cry Before Dawn, Sal Vitro, Delorentos, The Shoos, The Hot Sprokets, Darling and many more singing such well-known tunes as Jingle Bells, Rockin’ Around the Xmas Tree, Fairytale of New York, The Winter Song, Merry Christmas (I don’t want to fight tonight), I Believe in Father Christmas and many more.
The station is a big supporter of Irish music, featuring many Irish acts on its playlist. It has also given almost 400 new Irish bands airtime on its “Locals Only” show since its launch in September 2010.
“We love both Christmas and Irish music here at NOVA and inviting these bands to sing their own favourite festive number live on air is the perfect way to roll into Christmas”, said NOVA’s Programming Director & CEO, Kevin Branigan.
The bands can be heard every morning on ‘Morning Glory with Dee & Marty’ after 9am between now and Xmas.
