The Christmas Chronicles
by Tim Slover

Classical 89 presents The Christmas Chronicles, a Christmas story for radio, that captures the magic and mystery of everyone’s favorite Yuletide character—Santa Claus. Commissioned by Classical 89, author Tim Slover’s work finally reveals “a true and complete history of Santa.”

The eight part series will air:

  1. December 1-4 at 8pm (two episodes each evening)
  2. December 21, 22, 23, 24 at 8pm (two episodes each evening)
  3. On-Demand Listening Ongoing

The series originated in accounts of the astonishing life and activities of Santa, recalled and told by the author, Tim Slover, to his children over the years. It all started with a strictly scientific answer to a child’s classic question: “How does Santa deliver all those toys all over the world in just one night?” That’s the query that unlocked the grand adventure to keep the magic in and the cynicism of the world at bay.
