God Bless and keep u all, thank u for giving us a Christmas Eve service when so many of us were in isolation. in this difficult year, we appreciate all the light, my brothers. Stay safe until we meet again.

Thanks - a great Christmas present!
For those not living in the US (like me), I've been very impressed by what I've heard about the quality of these radio programmes. However, I've also been frustrated that I can't hear them! So I'm very glad that the band has made it possible to hear XTRACTS, even if we can't catch every programme if we're outside the US. The list of people involved in the latest edition looks awesome. I'm really looking forward to listening to this over Christmas. The perfect Christmas present from U2. Thank you!
