Modesto Area Christmas Radio Show

December 05, 2013

The First United Methodist Church in Modesto is offering a Christmas gift to Modesto area neighbors this year, "The Modesto Area Christmas Radio Show." There are three 90 minute shows: Saturday, Dec. 21 at 7 p.m.; Sunday, Dec. 22 at 3 p.m.; and Monday, Dec. 23 at 7 p.m. and each show is different. The generosity of the church makes every show free, but a ticket is needed for admission.

The Rev. Brandon Austin has modeled the shows on Garrison Keillor's weekly National Public Radio program, the "Prairie Home Companion." Talent, funny commercials, and dry witted skits are presented in the radio format, and there will be a dance floor for those who want to dance to swing and salsa tunes during the show and intermission. Although most of the 500 tickets for each night have been distributed, some tickets remain available. Call (209) 522-9046. Those attending will be encouraged to give to "Imagine No Malaria" and to "UMCOR: Philippines Typhoon."
