It’s that time of year once again. It hardly seems like yesterday since we were partying to last year’s chart!
The Net Radio Group Listener Top 100 ‘Christmas Countdown is now in it’s 3rd year, but already is becoming a tradition, rather like a new pair of slippers, although much more exciting!
So, on Saturday, 23 December at 12pm UK time, 7am US Eastern for 10 hours Treehouse Radio and The Phoenix will play the entire chart as voted for by you!
To that end, we nneed your participation, or it’s going to be a pretty dull affair like a party at Mary and Ida’s house.
All you have to do is e-mail your top 5 favorite Christmas songs to email@example.com and we’ll do the rest!
If you can put your top 5 in order of preference that would be fabulous, but it’s more important that we just get your 5 if you can’t decide!
Then all you have to do is tune in on 23 December to hear if one of your choices has made the top 100!
Get it done sooner rather than later or you’ll forget and the deadline is midnight UK time, 7pm US Eastern on Tuesday, 19 December, that’s after Music By Starlight on Treehouse and mellow Love on The Phoenix.
In case you’re scratching your head wondering what the hell to choose, we’ve included last year’s chart below as a quick memory jolt.
That e-mail address again is firstname.lastname@example.org
This is just the first event of the Christmas season across the Net Radio Group, we have lots more planned to keep you entertained.
