Balearic Breakfast | Episode 17 | A Cloudy Christmas...

Updated: Apr 30, 2023

Worldwide FM broadcast the 17th episode of Balearic Breakfast on December 22nd 2020.

“Christmas isn't just a day, it's a frame of mind.”

I don't remember the snow falling on that cold December day; I remember it being cloudy and somewhat happy (as the Christmas tree had already been set up). The Balearic Breakfast Family eagerly awaited a new edition of its beloved show. Hearing the opening track made me smile, and I felt, as often, instantly at Home.

This 17th edition of Balearic Breakfast may be the most laid-back of the series since the show's start in September. Colleen's selection and how she mixes the tracks together give the listener that perfect Christmas vibe: for instance, we get to discover another beautiful song that was to be included in the first Balearic Breakfast compilation, Mike Salta's "Henry's Spacewalk" followed by the somewhat worried "Ullyses" by Dead can dance and then by the dreamy (yet slightly sad) rendition of "California Dreaming" by José Feliciano... You can't miss the Christmas spirit when listening to these songs! And even when the rhythm is getting faster, later in the show, you can picture yourself drinking a lovely Balearic Breakfast tea near a snowy Balearic Christmas tree on a beautiful island. Now, tell me, how Balearic is that ?!
