A Christmas Story From San Antonio's Jazz Legend, Jim Cullum

Elena Souris

Jim Cullum, famed coronetist, Jazz band leader, club owner and creator of now-defunct Public Radio staple "Riverwalk Jazz" recounts the story of the bullet in the bar for the Worth Repeating audience. 

One Christmas Eve a cat burglar comes face to face with Santa - or a approximation at least - and the resulting chaos holds gun shots, flying beer and a passed-out man.

Recorded on April 5th, 2016, the following tracks are the final show in season one of Worth Repeating, Texas Public Radio's Live Storytelling event series.
