Dec. 13, FRIDAY Holiday Music Extravaganza

Air Date:
Heard On Route 51
Members of the John Altenburgh Christmas Extravaganza

Because of NPR Special Coverage: House Judiciary Committee Impeachment Articles Markup and Vote, “Route 51” moves to Friday at 10 a.m. on the central and north central staions of The Ideas network.

A true Wisconsin Christmas tradition, the John Altenburgh Christmas Extravaganza has long been the hottest ticket in town at the Grand Theatre in Wausau. Shereen Siewert welcomes Altenburgh, along with fellow band members Mitch Viegut and Paula Hall, for a sneak preview of this year’s show.

Along with performing their favorite holiday tunes, these three musicians will talk about the history of the show, the bonds of friendship that keep them together, and how they work to keep the show fresh for audiences year after year.
