Songs about the sun in its many guises on tonight's "UKNY" at 11 p.m. — as the days grow shorter, sunshine is a precious commodity. The holiday season is underway — Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, began earlier this evening — but this festive season is a tough one for many of us missing loved ones or faced with challenges.

So seeking nothing but the sun — setting, rising, and eclipsed —  on "UKNY" via songs by Lou Hayter, Elbow, Teenage Fanclub, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Greentea Peng, Saint Etienne and many others from Britain and beyond.
