Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (December 24, 2016): Christmas Edition

Brass, Reeds, and Percussion wishes you a merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, and other holiday best wishes. Thank you for your support of the show and for your support of WLRH. Brass, Reeds, and Percussion is a locally produced show and does not originate with National Public Radio. As a matter of fact, Brass, Reeds, and Percussion is one of the longest running shows in the history of Alabama public broadcasting. That’s because of the predecessor host Darryl Adams, who hosted the show from its beginning in 1976 until his untimely death in 2011. So we also thank Darryl for his contributions to our community.
