The Shepherd

#1 Post by 7ECA » Sat Dec 23, 2017 9:31 pm

I know this radio piece has been spoken of with a great deal of reverence year after year.

This year, I happened to catch it on air for the first time. Very moving indeed.

Here is a link to "The Shepherd" read by one of the CBC's best announcers of all time, the late Alan Maitland.

Merry Christmas to all, and a safe year to everyone.

I have it on a CD, and listen to it every Christmas. Yes very moving. We have all been there at one time or another....someone else is pulling our strings. And I believe it's a true story.
