24 Hours of A Christmas Story

Once again this Christmas classic will air on TBS for 24 hours beginning at 8 pm on Christmas Eve. Jean Sheppard's childhood adaptation of a boy who just wants a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas is a must see for any generation.

Although no exact year is given for the movie, it falls somewhere between post-Depression Era and pre-World War II. Roughly around the time my of my father's childhood.

I love when Randy is bundled up and cannot move. Who remembers that when they were a kid. Father paints profanity like Picasso and the parents are bewildered where the son "gets it from."

Remember how houses were wired when the Christmas light go out? Stringing up the lights was major undertaking.

Once again, enjoy this timeless classic.

Speaking of classics, BILL 95FM will broadcast an evening with Tom Kutza the legendary "Morning Mayor" on the mighty WISL 1480AM/95.3 FM. The broadcast will run from 7 pm to 12 am on Christmas Eve.
