The Public Square

"Remember no man is a failure who has friends." It's a Wonderful Life, 1946

George Bailey can teach us all a lot about life. Every year we dedicate the last program of December to think about what Frank Capra and Jimmy Stewart were trying to tell America in the classic film It's a Wonderful Life. So grab your last holiday cup of cheer and join us around the radio this week on The Public Square®.

Happy New Year from all of us at The Public Square®!
