Christmas Eve: The replacements

The JX team (not all of them)

The Exchange crew takes Christmas off, even if it falls on a Saturday. So, on Christmas Eve, we offer replacement programming to fill our time slot...

8am/8pm - Sherlock Holmes And The Christmas Goose
From the Collaborative Theatre Project in Medford comes this holiday treat, featuring JPR's own Don Matthews and Geoff Ridden. Adapted By Michael Menendian and John Weagly, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle is one of 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It was first published in The Strand Magazine in January 1892. Journey back to Victorian England and delight in the clever tale!

9am/9pm - Selected Shorts: Holiday Hurdles With David Sedaris
Listeners are invited to reimagine holiday rituals. Selected Shorts’ late host and founder Isaiah Sheffer is featured as the reader of Tobias Wolff’s “Powder,” in which a pre-Christmas snowstorm provides an adventure for a father and son. In Allegra Goodman’s gentle borrowing from an O’Henry classic, a long-established couple discover they can surprise one another; Dana Ivey and Michael Cerveris read her “Gifts of the Jewish Magi. And David Sedaris says English writer Jeanette Winterson captures the city to a T in “Christmas in New York,” a modern fairy tale with just a hint of magic, performed by Richard Masur.
