About the Show

Today on the show we're kick starting the holiday season with a program about celebrating the holidays in an urban environment.

We'll speak with Cindy Gatziolas of the.  She'll tell us about the city's plans for the holidays and how a city works with private organizations to make the season bright.

Then, what's Christmas in the city without a Christmas Carol?  We'll speak with sound designer Lindsay Jones about bringing the sounds of Charles Dickens' London to life in the Theatre. 

And we'll have a line-up of our own ghosts of christmas past...we've brought back some of our favorite past-guests, and friends of the show to discuss their holiday plans, and what makes the city such a special place to celebrate this time of year.
