Ahead of presenting Alternative Christmas on 2FM, DJ and broadcaster, Graham Smyth has put together a 25 minute, 50-track sampling Christmas mix.

From festive funk to reggae, hip-hop, disco, pop and everything in between, Graham samples some seasonal deep cuts and Christmas classics to package up a record rinsing present of aural joy.

Speaking about the upcoming show, Graham said: "I've always loved Christmas songs of every shape and size so I have a load of them at home.

"I wanted to put together a nice little journey through my record collection, so I created this mix to stick on at parties around the festive season!"

The release of this mix comes ahead of Graham presenting two alternative Christmas shows on 2FM in the run up to Christmas weekend.

He added: "This is my fourth time presenting Alternative Christmas on 2FM and it is always my favourite show of the year.

"The listeners have previously sent in great suggestions before the show airs so I’d love for them to DM me on socials @grahamsmythdj with their favourite Christmas curveballs!

"I’m lucky enough to have two shows on this year so I get to play two hours of great Christmas tracks from the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Run DMC, The Hives and No Doubt.

"It’s not often we get to play the weird, the wonderful and the rare Christmas tracks that people haven't heard 100 times already!"
