A Light Goes On

Dec 22, 2011

What do your childhood memories of holiday’s past look like? Sound like? Today on Central Standard, a look at an ambitious homemade gift – from Lawrence musician Sam Billen.

A Light Goes On is a project pairing artists and musician together, and asking them to create original works for a multimedia Christmas treasure trove, free online for one and all. On today's show, we’ll hear some of the original songs created for this endeavor, and dig into some of our guests own Christmas nostalgia.

Then, later in the hour, a look at the fates of lousy gifts with Tod Marks, the Senior Editor and resident shopping expert at Consumer Reports.
