CKXU rings in Christmas with Santa and carols

E-mail Print PDF

 University of Lethbridge  based community radio station CKXU held an enjoyable Christmas party at the Slice for volunteers, listeners, Santa “Matty V” Claus poses for a pic with Nicole Hembroff. Photo by Richard Amerycommunity members and anybody  who happened to stop by, Dec. 16.

 It even included Santa “Matty V” Claus himself posing for pictures by the fireplace.
 Shane the Librarian, one of the DJS provided  the beats for the dancers and Jesse  Northey  and  the Dandelions provided Christmas cheer in the form of unusual versions of Christmas carols. 

 While  they were singing a little off key (perhaps ironically performing bad versions of the carols) and added a little bit of an indie rock flair to well roasted Christmas chestnuts, they had the audience on their feet for plucky versions of  all of their Christmas favourites and even John Lennon’s “So This Is Christmas.”
