ANDERS ÖSTBERG – SANTA CLAUS HIDES IN THE PHONOGRAPH. MUSIC FROM MY COLLECTION.

A special Xmas program by Anders Östberg, something he just had to do being a citizin of a country that has reindeers and the north pole within its confines.

Are we not too subversive and too damn cool to deal at all with the big yearly celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, saviour of some factions of mankind?

Or is an hour of Christmas songs of all sorts and dimensions on our radio a statement that the meme Christmas is a roadsign that points in various directions, be they anarchic, pagan, christian, commercial or your speakers?

Does it matter?
