Last year, we celebrated Christmas on Phoenix FM Drive by launching the Drivetime Christmas Chart. If you missed it then you can still catch up on all the excitement of the dramatic and wonderfully festive conclusion here.
This year, it’s back and bigger than ever! Featuring 20 brand new Christmas songs, all released in 2022 to give you a flavour of Christmas present as opposed to spending too long with the songs of Christmas past. (Although we’ll still be playing the originals too… obviously!)
Here are a list of the tracks entered into this year’s chart…
During the run up to Christmas on Drive I’ll be playing four brand new, original Christmas songs each day and alongside our calendar of festive musical treats you can vote on Twitter for your favourite track each day. Using the familiar World Cup format with groups followed by a few semifinals we’ll whittle down to our final four just in time for a big chart countdown on Friday 23rd December where we’ll vote on the winner – the perfect way to round up another year of musical discovery!
I’ve even compiled all of this year’s entries into a Spotify playlist which you can find here. They’re all wonderful and some of them even come from previous and upcoming guests who have already or will soon be joining us for a chat on Phoenix FM! Do take a listen, keep an eye on Twitter (@StewPink) and vote for your favourite each day until Christmas!
Of course, you can tune in online to Drivetime every weekday from 3-6pm where I’ll be running the Christmas Chart feature every day at 4:30pm (to hear the day’s entries) and 5:30pm (to hear the day’s winner) – it’d be lovely to have your company.
I’ll post the audio to the seminal draw, the final and a chart countdown below for you to catch up on again afterwards. Good luck to all our musicians and Merry Christmas!
