Christmas eve and Christmas day programming on Bexley Public Radio.

Clint Marsh of Wonderella Printed has given permission to Bexley Public Radio to read his portions of the Bonita Hollow Christmas Packet.

Program hosts on Thursday and Friday will read those portions of the Christmas Packet by Clint Marsh. The readings will accompany a presentation of "Snow-Bound, A Winter Idyl" This poem, by John Greenleaf Whittier, is a 19th-century classic winter poem. The descriptions of the winter snow fall will sound familiar to all who experienced the central Ohio ice storm of 2004. Bexley Public Radio staffers read the poem on air last Christmas day

The Bonito Hollow Christmas Packet is published by Wonderella Printed . Wonderella Printed describes itself as a pamphleteer. But it is more than that. It is an elegant small press. It is a printer of editions of comfortable classics and new writings.

Touch their product and you'll want to read.

Wonderella Printed at Clint Marsh writes:

Hi Kurt!
Really good to hear from you. Many of the copyrights for the material in the Bonita Hollow Christmas Packet are held by other people, but many of the pieces quote older sources in the public domain. Here are the parts you could read on-air (starting from the beginning):

* The welcome (although that's a bit irrelevant to people outside my social circle)
* The Thomas Tusser pages
* "How to Drive the Cold Winter Away"
* The wassail bits
* The "Holiday Wisdom" quotes
* "It Is Now Christmas..." from the last page

Thank you, and Merry Christmas!
