Behind the Fairytale

Dermot O'Leary (BBC Radio Journalist/DJ) presents the multi-layered story behind the Christmas classic Fairytale of New York by The Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl

The programme explores the origins and journey of this iconic song, from how it came to be written; to the recording process; the repercussions for the Irish emigrant population in New York; and its continuing testament to the talents of the late Kirsty MacColl.

It features interviews with members of The Pogues, Record Producer Steve Lillywhite, Kirsty MacColl's mum Jean MacColl, Irish American singer Larry Kirwan, Irish American author and historian Peter Quinn and NYPD former Homicide Detective Brian McCabe.

I don't know if it's geolocked or not but I hope you can listen to it. I know those of us here in the UK can anyway!!!
