December 24 on the Weekend Arts Magazine

We have a special treat for listeners on Saturday morning - Andy Jones and his tall Christmas tale, Jack and the Manger. We’ll feature the readings episodically throughout the morning, with the culmination in the last half hour. We’ll also hear about Christmas celebrations at the Moravian Church in Happy Valley Goose Bay. Kate Story talks about her most recent novel, Wrecked Upon This Shore. And Shelley Chase fills us in on all the Newfoundland and Labrador musicians attending this year’s Woodford Folk Festival … in Australia!

The Weekend Arts Magazine with Mack Furlong airs from 6 to 9:30 island time - 5:30 to 9:00 in parts of Labrador - on Saturday morning only this special weekend on CBC Radio 1. Our Sunday program will be national in origin.
