Saint Augustine, FL — Swamp Radio, a live radio show celebrating Northeast Florida culture through stories, interviews and music, will present A Swamp Radio Christmas on Tuesday, Dec. 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College, located at 14 Granada St., in downtown St. Augustine.

The episode will explore holiday traditions in the Saint Augustine area.

“It’s no secret that Saint Augustine is a wondrous place during the holiday season. The warm and welcoming lights all over the ancient city reflect a generosity of spirit and respect for Southern hospitality,” said Ian Mairs, the show’s host and creator.

This episode will give audiences an opportunity to connect with the past, celebrate the present, while keeping an eye toward the future. Actor Chad Light will recreate the first Christmas spent by Spanish explorers in the form of a dramatized journal entry tracking the movements in the area.

Novelist Laura Lee Smith fondly remembers the carol singing of local favorite Carrie Johnson. Hotshot Bakery owner, Sherry Stoppelbein, will explain her cafe’s famous chocolate dipped Datil peppers and the notorious Wall of Flame.

There will be musical offerings from long time favorite Sam Pacetti and gospel singer Tarra Conner Jones.

Show regular, Andy Nance, has put together a humorous look at working as a performer during the holiday season.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for students, seniors and military. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit swampradiojax.com
