ELIZA CARTHY News: Eliza is suffering from a cyst on her vocal chords that can't be treated during her pregnancy and unforunately has had to cancel her solo engagements until 2009.  She knows that both the audiences and the venues will be disappointed and apologises to everyone concerned.  Eliza hopes to re-schedule dates for next year. The Ashford gig on Nov 14th will now be Martin Carthy instead.

STEVE MORRIS, WCRFM Station Manager, was thrilled by last year's listener response. As he said in November 2007, "when I came up with the idea of playing nothing but Christmas music from the beginning of December through to Christmas Day you could have heard the groans right across the country because the presenters actually believed that there were only a dozen seasonal records! They certainly hadn't reckoned with a playlist that would roam from Fats Domino to Alan Jackson, St. Agnes Fountain, Sonny Landreth, The Austin Lounge Lizards, Asleep At The Wheel, Tish Hinojosa, B.B. King .... !"
