Join us for the Third Coast International Audio Festival's take on the holidays.

Stories include:

No Santa | by John Biewen for Scene on Radio (2015)

A father turns on a recorder while tucking in his 7-year-old, having no idea he’s about to capture a poignant growing-up moment in his son’s life.

Vince Guaraldi: A Charlie Brown Christmas | by Ben Manilla for Inside the National Recording Registry for Studio 360 (2012)

Have you ever been to the Third Coast Institute of Sound? Probably not. It's a dreamed-up fictional museum where all of the exhibits and artifacts are dedicated to things that make sound and noise.

On this special, the history of the cat piano goes back centuries and raises unanswered (and perhaps unanswerable) questions about the relationship between music and noise, human and animal.

Join us this weekend, and next, for the winners of the 17th annual Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.

From more than 600 entries, eleven were chosen as winners. The stories are meticulously crafted and lovingly produced -- they intrigue, inform and inspire. The program also features interviews with some of the exceptional producers.

We'll hear the best from Third Coast this weekend and next on WRVO, Sunday, January 7 and 14 at 7 p.m. If you missed the live broadcast, you can listen online.
