Last night the last Prog & Roll radio Show of 2016 was on air, on a different day than usual, but at the same time. Because on Sunday we have Christmas, we decided to move our show 2 days earlier, and have a “Christmas Special” show.
Because it was a special and the last show of the year, we tried to make it somehow different. For those reasons, we added in the playlist some famous Christmas Carols in very interesting versions and tried to also include songs from many different genres and sub-categories.
We had a good crown listening, but not as many as other times, because the people weren’t informed I guess, or forgot it. Even me, enough times I found myself thinking that it was Sunday, because I got confused.
Anyway, further than all those things, during the last part of the show we also had the contest for the ‘Song of the Month’, during which, our listeners have to grade once more the best songs we played during the whole month, and with their grades are choosing the winning song.
I believe it was an interesting and pleasant show, and I hope the people enjoyed it.
Here, you can see the whole playlist:
1st Part: SOUTHPARK: Oh Holy Night / TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA: O Come All Ye Faithful / THE NEAL MORSE BAND: Back to the City / RPWL: Unchain the Earth / GENTLE STORM: Heart of Amsterdam / CLIVE NOLAN: Quarternary Plan.
2nd Part: DIO: God Reast Ye Merry Gentlemen / MANOWAR: The Crown and the Ring / RHAPSODY (OF FIRE): The Magic of the Wizard’s Dream / BLIND GUARDIAN: The Maiden and the Minstrel Knight / BLACK SABBATH: The Sign of the Southern Cross.
3rd Part: JETHRO TULL: Gaudete / LOREENA McKENNITT / Good King Wenceslas / BLACKMORE’S NIGHT: Mond Tanz-Child in Time / STEELEYE SPAN: All Around my Hat / FAIRPORT CONVENTION: Sir Patrick Spens / MIKE OLDFIELD: In Dulci Jubilo.
4th Part: "SONG OF THE MONTH" Contest: THE BEATLES: While My Guitar Gently Weeps / THE ROLLING STONES: She’s a Rainbow / SPOCK’S BEARD: On a Perfect Day / DIO: The Last in Line.
After our listener's graded the songs and I calculated the average points each song received, The title of the Song of the Month for December goes to: The Last in Line by Dio.
I would like to thank all those who joined our show last night, and to wish you all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Prog & Roll is going to have a two weeks break and will be back on Sunday the 8th of January. Till then, take care!
