Don’t Wait Too Long!

It’s been said that Christmas is for children: the sparkle, the smells, the songs, the squeals of delight when magically wrapped presents suddenly appear beneath the tree with our name on them. But at what point in a child’s life does the giving of those gifts suddenly become more important than receiving them? When making someone else smile outweighs our own “gimme-gimme, ” to transition into the wide-eyed anticipation of seeing the joy on a loved one’s face when they unwrap a carefully planned surprise from us? This is the story of A Transistor Christmas, a timeless tribute to the fact that everyone is a child on Christmas morning and testament to how it is truly more blessed to give than to receive.

“Rocking Around the Christmas Tree” rang out loud and proud through the ruby red gizmo I balanced in the palm of my hand for the first time that cold December day ….”

Tucked away in Small-Town, America, the turbulent years of the 60’s proved to be a magical time to grow up for author Donna Austgen Frisinger who, thanks to a first-time babysitting job, earned the money to buy her mother the ground-breaking 1960’s transistor radio, no bigger than a deck of cards.

From the rock ‘n’ roll thrills of “American Bandstand” to the hide-your-eyes chills of “Shock Theater,” complimented by the beautiful acrylics of award-winning illustrator Vicki Guess, what Donna learned that Christmas season changed her life forever, and is a story that will touch your heart to reflect upon your own childhood transitions when anything and everything seemed possible.
