Neneh Cherry burst onto the scene with her performance of Buffalo Stance whilst pregnant on Top of the Pops in 1988. She was instrumental in incubating the sound system culture and the trip-hop sound, and this year she released her fourth, critically acclaimed, solo album following a 16 years hiatus - a return which was been hailed as one of the most creative chapters in an already fascinating career. Digging into the BBC 6 Music archive, she has chosen The First Time with Quentin Tarantino (6-7pm); Iggy Pop's Desire themed show (7-9pm); Looking For The Perfect Beat, about the birth of hip hop; Way Out West - The Bristol Underground Story; and live music archive from The Slits, and more.

Neneh Cherry said, ""I'm honoured and touched, and in fact quite amazed, to be one of 6 Music's Wise Women this Christmas. I don't know about the wise bit, but nonetheless it's happening and I find myself in the best female company of the genius beauties St Vincent and Alison Goldfrapp. The BBC has a vast library of music and documentaries, so to have access to this world is a dream come true, or maybe the best Christmas present ever - a journey through the left field, new school, old school, now, and the future."".

Neneh Cherry unwraps the 6 Music archive to share her superlative music taste with listeners on Christmas Day.

This Christmas Three Wise Women take over BBC Radio 6 Music, bearing gifts to delight the listener. On Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, St Vincent, Neneh Cherry and Alison Goldfrapp will each curate five hours of programming, including presenting a two hour show and looking through the 6 Music Archive to select their favourite First Time With and Iggy Pop shows from across the year and also choosing the Album of the Day.

Annie Clark, aka art-rock supremo St Vincent, is the first of the three Wise Woman of 6 Music and has produced one of the albums of 2014 with her fifth self-titled studio album. With a fiercely unique sound and being a full-on music obsessive, she'll be demonstrating her eclectic palate in her two hour show, from Nine Inch Nails to John Coltrane, Cate Le Bon to Peggy Lee and archive selections from Fela Kuti, Nirvana, Kate Bush, and an Album of the Day from one of hip hop's finest beat makers, musical innovators and production geniuses J Dilla.

St Vincent said, ""I've had the pleasure to be picked as one of the Wise Women, to play some of my favourite tracks and perhaps introduce 6 Music's listeners to some music they don't know but might love, and then some things they probably do know and hopefully also love. I'm really excited to get started."

Listeners will get the opportunity to find out what goes on in the Clark family household over the festive period as well as hearing Annie's favourite track of 2014 and wise gift track, and later on The First Time with David Byrne and Iggy Pop's Preachers and Seers show.
