Two Stories For Christmas

Kelsie Moore

On this 2021 Christmas, we know the holidays still might look different than in years past. RadioWest’s gift to you is something familiar – two of our favorite holiday stories. 

This Friday at 11 a.m., we’ll rebroadcast Ron Carlson’s “H Street Sledding Record” and "A Christmas Memory,” by Truman Capote, two stories we’ve loved and shared over the years. (Rebroadcast)

  • Ron Carlson's "H Street Sledding Record" appears in his book A Kind of Flying [Indiebound|AmazonBookshop]. It's read here by the actor Tobin Atkinson.
  • Truman Capote's "A Christmas Memory" is read by the scholar Joseph Maiolo [Indiebound|AmazonBookshop].
