Airs Tuesday, December 6 at 1 p.m. What sweeter music can we bring than a carol… 17th-century English poet and cleric Robert Herrick captured the beauty of a joy-filled Christmas Day filled with sunshine and flowers. In 1988 John Rutter clothed these words in his own beautiful carol setting. This year the Rochester, NY chamber choir Madrigalia, and their new Artistic Director Cary Ratcliff, return to public radio for Christmas with Madrigalia 2014, a holiday concert that celebrates the beauty and joy of the season.

HOLIDAY CRIME DETERRENT - The Christmas shopping season is in full swing and so is the Bossier City Police Department's  Armed Robbery Task Force as more police officers will be logging in overtime in an effort to prevent crime among retail businesses, especially late-night convenience and grocery stores.
The task force has been a tradition beginning in 1987 and has been considered a success in reducing armed-robberies in the city during the holiday season.
