Eastern Standard

A special Christmas gift from WEKU and Eastern Standard! Tom Eblen joins Tom Martin in conversations with Kentucky Poet Laureate Crystal Wilkinson, acclaimed Kentucky novelist Silas House and former Kentucky Poet Laureate Richard Taylor about their contributions to “A Kentucky Christmas”, an anthology edited by George Ella Lyon and published by the University Press of Kentucky. Plus, a reading by Georgia Green Stamper of her contribution to Kentucky Monthly’s anthology, “The Twelve Days of a Kentucky Christmas,” a feature about why Louisville children’s author Dee Dee Cummings published a Christmas book featuring African American characters, and historian Thomas Weyant on how the modern Christmas was influenced by the cold war between the US and USSR.

Tom Martin hosts Eastern Standard, a weekly radio magazine of interviews and stories about interesting people, places, and things happening in the Commonwealth.
