Noel Gallagher confirmed for Steve Lamacq's Drivetime Christmas Party

For the third year running, Noel Gallagher joins Steve Lamacq with a sack full of records to soundtrack the BBC Radio 6 Music Drivetime Christmas Party and talk about his year in music

Expect leftfield sounds and forgotten gems which Noel has dusted off from his collection. In previous specials, listeners have been treated to alternative ‘60s cuts from The Velvet Underground and The Animals, alongside crackers from The Kit Kats, Gino with Johnny Greek, and Kid Koala, so expect the same psychedelic sounds this time around.

Steve will chat to Noel about his world tour with the High Flying Birds, which ended in September after nearly two years on the road taking in festivals and arenas on nearly every continent. Plus, listeners will hear Noel’s thoughts on the Oasis documentary film, Supersonic, which came out earlier this year to much fanfare, and Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the annual Gallagher festive rant...
