Turn back the clock and tune in your radio for some old-fash­ioned hol­i­day fun! Last-Minute Gifts is a col­lec­tion of orig­i­nal hol­i­day sto­ries by five Kentucky writ­ers, includ­ing Silas House, Bo List, Vivian Snipes, Frank X Walker, and Caitlyn Waltermire.

Mark Mozingo is the game mas­ter in “It Ain’t Nothin’: Restore the Light” by Vivian Snipes. (Herald-Leader pho­to by Rich Copley)

Winchester native Mark Mozingo per­forms in one of five short radio plays that will air at 8 p.m. Monday and at 6 p.m. on Christmas Day on WUKY 91.3 FM (or stream­ing at WUKY.org). The pro­gram is pro­duced by Lexington’s AthensWest Theatre com­pa­ny and University of Kentucky Public Radio.

The unit­ing theme of the pro­grams cel­e­brates Kentucky’s diver­si­ty. The Athens West web­site says, “December is a sea­son when many peo­ple come togeth­er to cel­e­brate thanks and giv­ing, regard­less of faith, back­ground, and belief. Last-Minute Gifts will bring us togeth­er to show us the many ways our sim­i­lar­i­ties out­weigh our dif­fer­ences — espe­cial­ly dur­ing the holidays.”
