A trucking version of a famous Christmas poem, one woman’s memories of a trucker’s kindness, one charity’s struggle, and the Hudgins Holiday Sing-Along.
I. Today’s news with Terry Scruton
Jingle those bells, unwrap those presents and start carving that turkey – but don’t forget to stay up to date on what’s happening in the world of trucking.
II. Our special Christmas tradition
Our annual tradition: a special, trucking version of the classic holiday poem “A Visit From St. Nick,” better known as “’Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Also, the story of how truckers helped reunite a woman with her brother who was injured on D-Day.
III. A tough year for a good cause
2019 was a demanding year for the St. Christopher’s Fund, both because the need was great, and many truckers lacked the cash to help.
IV. The Hudgins Holiday Sing-Along
Just in case you haven’t had your fill of Christmas music, the Exit 24 Holiday Chorus offers up our own version of some holiday classics, truck-i-fied by longtime trucking writer Bill Hudgins. We call it the Hudgins Holiday Sing-Along.
