The staff and volunteers have Thursday and Friday off this week to celebrate Christmas, but we’ve lined up our favorite yuletide programs — including classic favorites and special new additions — to keep your holidays festive, warm, and entertaining.  Regular programming resumes on Saturday.

Happy holidays to you and yours, and thank you for making KHNS your community radio station!
