As we're in the dog days of December, we're happy to share with you: the LITM Christmas Special 2022. Tim and Jeremy have selected 9 records to form the basis of your alternative festive listening. We hear from show staples like the Salsoul Orchestra, Arthur Russell and Lee 'Scratch' Perry, some seasonal deep house, Senegalese monastic music and the Modern Jazz Quartet. We also discuss the relevance of the winter solstice, the proliferation of novelty records, what makes a gimmick, acid brass, glam rock, vibes and more...

Thank you for all your support this year, it's been great to have you all along for the party. We'll be taking a short winter break, then the music is back on the platter early in January.

Produced and edited by Matt Huxley.
