Celtic Music Radio Album Of The Year Show.
Celtic Music Radio will be announcing our first ever Album of the Year on Boxing Day at noon.
Votes from our listeners are being counted and we can’t wait to reveal a station Album Of The Year for the very first time.
Throughout the year we pick an Album of the Week, sponsored by Cardwell Garden Centre, but this year we decided to launch our search for the year’s top release.
And it has been no easy task with so many brilliant releases to consider – as a result the competition has proved tough as listeners votes came in.
Presenters Kate Reid, John Joe MacNeil, Ross Macfadyen and Liz Clark, will be your hosts for this extra special, four-hour, festive season musical treat.
They have a 46-strong list of contenders and will be playing a track from each album. Other CMR presenters will be pitching in as well, talking about their own favourites from well-known and lesser-known acts.
All in all, music lovers are going to be delighted – so we hope you can tune in and savour some great sounds.
We think you are going to love it.
