Addicted To Vinyl Musical thoughts from the open road, with headphones on


Good Listening: A Cockburn Christmas Miracle

If you've been following the series of Bruce Cockburn Christmas-themed broadcasts that Kevin has been posting in the past week, the following story might warm your heart. Or at the very least, you'll appreciate one last piece of holiday musical booty.  In the last installment, Kevin noted that there were a total of 5 Cockburn Christmas broadcasts, of which he only had 4. (I honestly was shocked to find out that he had more than one!)

Thanks to random ATV reader Mark, we now have a copy of the missing broadcast from 1995 featuring special guests Jonatha Brooke, Patty Larkin and Peter Stuart (of the sorely missed Dog's Eye View). Mark figured that even though Christmas is now several days gone, there might still be a few people that would enjoy hearing it. We're guessing that he's right about that. And at the very least, you'll have some advance listening material to stow away for next year!

Huge thanks to Mark for the share!
