Festive Music With Walt

I am delighted to announce that our own Mr Music Man, Walt, has kindly agreed to run the Festive Music Requests again this year. We all really enjoy the fun and all the different musical requests that Clickers come up with, so thank you Walt.

It can be any kind of music you want, as long as it has a seasonal theme.So get those requests in everyone and many thanks again to Walt for running it for us again this year.

As usual, Walt has complete autonomy, he can ignore, add or carry forward as many requests as he wants from day to day. Over to you Maestro.
