Silent Night

Dig if you will the picture of Prince under the mistletoe. It's one of the scenes we'll visit on Mystery Train this week. The peculiar paternity of Joseph is considered, along with stories of other travelers headed to new places with big plans. We'll also hear transformative versions of Silent Night and the Nutcracker. Hop on board Christmas day at 6pm and Sunday afternoon at 4.
