Get Ready to ROCK! Radio - Happy Christmas!

Christmas week on Get Ready to ROCK! Radio gets all nostalgic as we look back on some of our favourites and features in 2014.

On Tuesday 23 December we announce the results of our Popular Poll to select the Top Albums of 2014 and Top Live Acts.

Already, the Get Ready to ROCK! Reviewers have made their own choices.  Readers and listeners can vote from the extended list and enter a prize draw before 22 December.

The Best of 2014

And on 28 December 2014 ‘The Best Of 2014′ is a two-hour special featuring a selection of readers and reviewers choices. (22:00)

On Christmas Day, we have an end-of year showcase for the Cherry Red group of labels with a chance to win a bumper bundle of albums.  ‘A Cherry Red Christmas’ is at 21:00.
