I've been running a music blog called mp3hugger since 2005 and despite all the great artists I've discovered since then I still look back on the period of 1989 to 1993 as music's golden era. I started my own record label in 2008 called Indiecater which can be relied upon to offer a brand new Christmas compilation every 12 months. Annoyed by the fact that Christmas only comes but once a year I now spend much of the rest of it writing about Christmas music via Yuleplay, an all singing all dancing resource for those who need that Christmas spirit in their life all year round.
