Episode 16 of 123 episodes

Guest host Jane Kaczmarek presents four Christmas-themed works. First, two very different family Christmases: Ron Carlson’s “The H Street Sledding Record,” read by Keith Szarabajka, and Frank O’Connor’s “Christmas Morning,” read by Malachy McCourt. Then a whimsical comedy from the 1930s, George Shepards’s “Occurrence on the Six-Seventeen,” read by Tony Roberts. And humorist Calvin Trillin is dreaming of “Christmas in Qatar.”
