It IS a Wonderful Life

Merry Christmas from! I’ll be on a special prerecorded Christmas morning edition of “Between You and Me” on 91.7 KAXE. The show will cover many different aspects of Christmas, along with some appropriate tunes.

My essay will explore the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life.” It’s dubbed a holiday classic though I’ll be talking about how its quality as a film has more to do with the dark side of the human experience than the Christmas schmaltz many assume. On the biggest American holiday of the year many people are sad, not happy. And yet life goes on and, indeed, still promises hope.

The show runs from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday on 91.7 FM in northern Minnesota or streaming online all over the world at I know it’s Christmas morning, but maybe you’re in the car somewhere, right? My essays are archived at the website and syndicated on PRX for public radio stations.
