The Story: “This is the most hopeless place in the world!” Hilda intones as she and Satch argue over what time it is. Hilda dreams of faraway places to fight the tedium of running the Holly Railway Station until, that is, Leo Tannenbaum drops in out of nowhere just before Christmas. Suddenly an old radio springs to life and the local group of carolers begins to sound like the Morman Tabernacle Choir. The whole town now gets into the Christmas spirit. Coincidence? This nostalgic story is full of eccentric small-town characters who begin to discover the true wonder of Christmas, making us all wish that we, too, could take a ride on The Christmas Express.

The Story: This masterful suspense tale involves a successful mystery writer whose latest work has strangely turned into a romance – a vivid and adulterous romance. His son, his second wife, and his editor marvel at the truthfulness of the work, remarkable since it is inconceivable that he could ever have had such an affair. Enter a woman intent on blackmail: it appears that Arthur has been trysting away from home. Death stalks: the other woman disappears and evidence incriminates Arthur in her murder. There is a conspiracy to do Arthur in, a conspiracy that entails cunning, deceit, and ingenious plotting.

The Story: The “Pump Boys” sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and the “Dinettes”, Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door.

With heartbreak and hilarity, they perform on guitars, piano, bass and, yes, kitchen utensils.
