About 2 hours of unadulterated AC/DC.

Blimey, have you offended someone??

Yes - my kids, who had to put up with it! Not a trace of Cliff, Chris de Burgh, Nat King Cole, Mel and Kim, Slade, Boney M, the King's College Choir or Mike Oldfield for 2 hours. It was great!

If that's the sort of stuff your bins listen to year-round, Tim, I'm mildly surprised they're not five fathoms down in an Essex landfill :demon:

My bins? Is that an auto-correct of kids? No, their music is ok. Well, some of it is. It was just that I needed a break from the incessant Xmas Musak that infiltrates everything at this time of year. AC/DC, Metallica and Nickelback provided a suitable antidote!

R3 have just broadcast a programme about the film music of Ennio Morricone, evoking particularly Leone's Spaghetti Westerns - almost as Christmassy as Bond James Bond, The Great Escape or the first two "Die Hard" films.

On the 25th, I managed to sneak It's Clich├ęd to be Cynical at Christmas and All I Want for Christmas is a Dukla Prague Away Kit onto my sisters smart TV on YouTube. I told the onlookers that it was TOTP2 until the penny dropped and the remote was removed from my vicinity pronto. A song about cricketer Fred Titmus flashed on screen, but even I couldn't be that naughty.
