I. Today’s news with Terry Scruton


The DOT may not be ready for autonomous vehicles; a trucking company closes down a location in Texas; and a snowplow by any other name.

II. A Truckers’ Christmas Tale

We’ll have a special holiday treat: a special, truckers version of the classic holiday poem “a Visit from St. Nick,” better known as “Twas the Night Before Chistmas,” Richard Fatherly reads “A Truckers Christmas Tale.” Also, 75 years ago, a trucker helped reunite a woman with her brother, who was injured in the D-Day invasion of Europe. It’s an encore of a 2006 interview with Mrs. Pauline Myers of Independence, Missouri.

III. Wreaths Across America

Taking part in Wreaths Across America provided driver JD Walker a path toward healing after the tragic death of his son. Also, we’ll check in with two truckers who got to attend the White House Christmas party.

IV. The Hudgins Holiday Sing-Along

We have our own version of some holiday classics, truck-i-fied by long time trucking writer Bill Hudgins. We call it the Hudgins Holiday Singalong.
