  • A Christmas Tale

    I wanted to share this here for anyone who hasn't had the opportunity to hear this haunting Christmas story.

    This is played on Christmas Eve every year on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) Radio, the story of a DeHavilland Vampire pilot flying home on Christmas Eve, 1957.

    Without further ado, Frederick Forsyth's The Shepherd, as read by the late, great Alan Maitland.

    Happy Christmas.
