Listener Top 100 Christmas Countdown 2021

Well, it only seems like yesterday that we aired our Listener top 100 Christmas Countdown for 2020, but here we are in 2021 having just completed this year’s event.

A big thank you to Kaz, Billy, Kay, Terry and ~Buffy for bringing the chart to life, you did an amazing job and, extra bonus, no technical issues.
