Christmas comes but once a year, When it comes it brings good cheer; Crackers, holly, mistletoe, Blazing Yule-logs, crisp white snow: Christmas cards by every post, Which one do you like the most-Mediaeval - Crinoline - Merry Waits a-carolling - Robin Redbreast - quaint old Mill, Shepherd's cot on snow-capped hill - Let us look them thro' and see What they hold for you and me.

The Recipients: Elsie Eaves, Donald Davies, Kenneth Ellis, Mary Cardew, Sydney Evans, Barry Kendall, Richard Barron, The Station Orchestra
