Holiday Special on “The Midnight Special”

cabana

Saturday, December 20 at 9:00 pm


The annual Midnight Special Christmas/solstice program features holiday humor such as Stan Freberg, the late Mike Nichols and Elaine May, and new Christmas recordings from 2014.

In observance of the 100th anniversary of that historic night, The Midnight Special presents Cantus’s All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914; a recreation of carols and readings from that December night during WWI when enemies put down their weapons to celebrate Christmas together. Rich Warren offers another angle on that moving story with John McCutcheon’s Christmas in the Trenches.

    Is there any way to find this audio file? Would make a great gift and I just think more people should hear this!
